For a lot of us, summer means fun in the sun with countless poolside hours. And at the end of the day, when everyone is tired and hungry, we hop into the car for that quick trip home from the pool. What you may not realize is that, over time, those slightly damp swim suits are eating away the protective top coat on your leather seats. Yep, that same chlorinated water that dissipates the sunscreen protection on your skin, will also cause much damage to the leather ‘skin’ of your vehicle. And if you think sitting on a towel for the ride home will help, think again, if that towel has also been dampened with chlorinated water. This summer Fibrenew Upstate was called upon to service a relatively new Lincoln Navigator owned by a family of swimmers. Every seat throughout had lost the protective leather finish, but luckily the leather was still in good shape so that we were able to re-dye and top coat the front seats and bench seats, restoring them to a like new condition. Your best bet is to keep clean, dry towels in your vehicle for rides home from the pool as well as put dry shorts on over damp swim suits. And, if you believe the leather seats in your vehicle may have suffered chlorine damage over the summer, give us a call so that we can restore them before further damage ensues.
