Contact us today and we’ll get your boat shipshape and ready for your next adventure. But if you prefer to handle the cleaning yourself, here are some essential tips for proper marine upholstery maintenance.

Cleaning Marine Upholstery Begin by wiping off any dirt, grime, and sea salt from your vinyl upholstery using a damp cloth. This step will help eliminate surface contaminants. Next, apply a high-quality vinyl cleaner/protectant and wipe the surface clean again. Once you have removed all dirt and grime, apply a light layer of furniture polish and wipe it off with a clean cloth. This protective layer will help prevent stains and extend the life of your marine upholstery.

In case you have mildew on your vinyl, use a deck brush with soft bristles and a water/ammonia mix (4 parts water to 1 part ammonia) for scrubbing. Rinse thoroughly and repeat if necessary. For stubborn stains, there are commercial vinyl cleaning products available that should provide effective results.

Avoid using harsh abrasives or solvents when cleaning marine upholstery. Household bleach, chlorine-based cleaning solutions, mentholated spirits, as well as silicone or petroleum-based products can remove the protective top coat of the vinyl. These substances can also extract the plasticizers from the vinyl, causing it to become hard, brittle, and prone to cracking. Remember that vinyl is a porous material, similar to leather, and it needs to breathe.

In conclusion, for professional marine upholstery cleaning, trust our expertise. However, if you choose to tackle the task yourself, follow these guidelines to maintain the quality and longevity of your marine upholstery. Let your boat be your gateway to endless enjoyment on the water.
