Types of Car Upholstery for Your Seats

Car UpholsteryHow long has it been since you took a serious look at the upholstery in your car? Has your car upholstery has seen better days? Consider asking your local auto glass specialist to take a look during your next auto windshield and glass repair appointment. Here are a few of the most common types of car upholstery to discuss with your home and auto glass specialist.

1. Cloth

There are two popular types of cloth car upholstery: nylon and polyester. Both have benefits, but nylon is probably the most popular choice among automobile owners. Nylon is very durable, but porous and tends to collect debris easily. Polyester tends to be softer, but it’s easier to stain.

2. Vinyl

Vinyl is a very popular option as a car upholstery fabric. While nylon and polyester can both be a little difficult to clean, vinyl can usually be wiped off with nothing more than a damp towel. It’s both water-resistant and non-porous.

3. Leather

Leather is a favorite among car owners and for good reason. Visually, few other car upholstery options can even begin to compare with leather. That said, cleaning leather upholstery can sometimes be tricky. If you choose leather upholstery for your car, make sure you use only pre-approved cleaning products when cleaning is necessary.
