How to prevent dirt and oil damage to vinyl boat seats

If you own a boat and your seats have cushions, it is highly likely those cushions are made of vinyl. Vinyl is an ideal material for boat seats because it is not easily damaged by water and holds up well in most any weather. While this material is very durable, surface dirt can wear it down over time.

When people sit, stand and move around on your boat seats, the dirt and oils on the surface act like a fine sand paper. Those particles wear down the surface, making vinyl more susceptible to cracking, fading and staining. These tiny bits of grime can get down into the vinyl once it begins to wear down, causing it to look old. If you want your vinyl seats to last, you need to clean them regularly – and not just with water. Cleaning well with appropriate cleaners will remove the dirt and oil on the surface of vinyl seats, keeping grime from damaging your seats in the long run.

“I had a very worn leather couch cushion that had several small tears.  I did not know what to expect regarding leather repair but I'm a firm believer that Lloyd worked a miracle.  The couch cushion is marvelous. (actually did two).  I highly recommend, before thinking about furniture shopping,  you call Lloyd!”
