Tips to Maintain Your Boat’s Upholstery

Posted by & filed under Boat Repair.

Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 Lakes. With all that water, your summer should be spent somewhere on a boat! If you own a boat, you know how important it is to maintain your boat’s upholstery. There comes a time, though when all boats need repaired. For those living in a Lake Minnetonka-area community, like Excelsior, boat upholstery repair may be necessary at some point. In this blog, we’ll review some tips to keep your boat’s upholstery looking its best.

Seat Coverings

When your boat is not in use, you should keep the seats covered. The more protection you provide for your seats, the longer they are likely to last. Sun can do incredible damage to your boat’s interior over time. They will likely become dry, cracked and weathered looking. Uncovered seats can also be damaged by debris, hail or animals when left exposed to the elements. Most of this can be prevented with seat coverings, preferably mooring covers. This type of boat cover is vented, which prevents mildew.

Regular Cleaning

Boat upholstery should be cleaned regularly. The best cleaning method is warm water and dish soap. No harsh cleaners are necessary. A very soft plastic bristle brush will be able to do the job. Boat upholstery is extremely susceptible to staining. Any lotion or oil will stain the seats if it is left to set in. If you notice anything on your seats, wipe it up as soon as possible. Of course, if you have any stains boat upholstery repair is always an option.
