Thinking about finally doing something about the worn vinyl seats at your business, boat, or RV? Creative Colors International encourages you to contact the experts before tackling a vinyl restoration project as a weekend warrior.

Auto Leather Car Seat Repair - Before and After

Vinyl was discovered by Waldo Semon in the 1920s when he accidentally created the new substance while searching for a vinyl adhesive, The Vinyl Institute revealed. Initially, vinyl was used for insulated wires, raincoats, and shower curtains. Over the years, the use of vinyl as fabric gained ground for its low cost, durability, and versatility.

To maintain your vehicle’s resale value or prevent water damage on your boat, it’s important to make sure the vinyl on your seats is in tip-top shape. Vinyl seats are a great choice for businesses because they are affordable, easy to clean, and durable. Marine-grade vinyl can withstand the elements on your watercraft. Vinyl seats can endure the wear and tear from diners at your restaurant or patients in your waiting area. Despite being long-lasting and sturdy, there is a chance your vinyl seats could get a rip or tear. If this happens, the experts at CCI can come to you to make the necessary repairs with their vinyl restoration products.

Regular Cleaning Keeps Vinyl Fresh

While repairing and replacing vinyl is best left to the experts, regular cleaning can help keep your vinyl seating in superior condition and will extend its lifespan. Vinyl seating can be cleaned with a mild cleaning solution. Clean the seat with a damp cloth, using a circular motion. Rinse the seat with a separate cloth, and make sure to towel it dry. To prevent water damage or mildew, do not use too much water or let it pool on the seat. Make sure not to use an abrasive cloth or harsh chemicals because they can damage the vinyl.
