Maintaining auto or boat upholstery requires not only washing and periodic wipe-downs of your boat’s upholstery but also one or two annual deep cleanings. Why? Professional cleaning of your upholstery will help prevent unnecessary erosion and buildup of mold and mildew as well as help to extend the lifespan of your upholstery. Regular cleaning will help maintain your upholstery. But, having it professionally cleaned at least once per year will help your upholstery last longer, especially if you ask us to apply our DuPont Teflon® Carpet Protector to cloth upholstery to protect it from dirt and stains and vinyl protectant to vinyl upholstery to help keep it from cracking and peeling under the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Champion Carpet Care Company offers upholstery cleaning and restoration services for cars, boats and RVs including complete interior restoration, bimini tops and boat covers on any class of boat as well as cleaning of headliners (vinyl, wool broadcloth, or foam backed).
RV Upholstery & Carpet Cleaning
In addition to providing upholstery cleaning services, Champion Carpet Care Company offers upholstery, restoration services and carpet cleaning services for recreational vehicles (RVs), including complete interior restoration, Vinyl RV Awnings, RV Tile & Grout Cleaning, RV Grout Sealing, RV Grout Staining, and Cleaning of Headliners (vinyl, wool broadcloth, or foam backed).
Recreational vehicle (RV) furniture needs to be professionally cleaned on a regular basis, just like the furniture in your home or office. The difference is that RV furniture needs to be cleaned more frequently because it’s subject to harsher environments and grimier dirt (e.g., grease and oil). Maintaining your RV upholstery between professional cleanings can also get tricky. For example, if you toss your RV removable seat cushions in the washer or dryer, it can ruin the fabric. The way to clean them is to hand-wash them using a gentle cleaning agent, such as Woolite, then hung out to air dry. For non-removable covers, a spray-on upholstery cleaner will generally work. Spray the fabric with the upholstery cleaner. Allow it time to sit and soak into the cusion cover. Vacuum the remnants of the upholstery cleaner and let the cushion cover dry before using.RV Carpet Cleaning
RV carpeting is made of similar materials as carpeting you find in your home or office, but like RV furniture, it needs to be professionally cleaned more frequently than that in your home or office. Champion Carpet Care Company uses low moisture hot water extraction. Carpet manufacturers, carpet fiber producers and major trade unions agree that hot water extraction is the only way to lift stubborn dirt and stains. It’s the only method that provides enough heat to kill the bacteria that builds up in the carpeting and to lift grease and oil stains. Low moisture hot water extraction provides all the benefits of hot water extraction but uses a lot less water. Carpeting dries faster, and there’s less waste to dispose of.
Similar to your home or office, vacuuming is the main way you’ll maintain your RV carpeting. But, because of the tighter spaces, you’ll need to use the specialized hose attachments to remove dust and dirt from hard-to-reach places. Spot cleaning, especially on carpeting that is protected by DuPont Teflon® carpet protector is pretty easy if you get to the spill or pet accident quickly. It’s just a matter of blotting up as much much liquid up as you can with white paper towels or a clean white terrycloth towel. Then, gently rub in a soap and warm water mixture or a mixture of 50% water and 50% vinegar, working from the outside of the spot inward to keep it from spreading. Blot the spot dry with white paper towels or a clean white terrycloth. Or, use a shop vac to vacuum up the excess moisture. Baking soda and dry corn starch do a great job of deodorizing RV carpeting as it does with your home or office carpeting.
