How long has it been since you took a hard look at the upholstery in your vehicle? Has your car upholstery 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 some of the most common types of car upholstery to discuss with an auto technician.
There are two popular types of cloth upholstery: nylon and polyester. Both have benefits, but nylon is probably the most popular choice among car owners. Nylon is durable but porous and collects debris easily. Polyester tends to be softer but is prone to stains.
Vinyl is a popular option as an upholstery fabric. While nylon and polyester can both be a little difficult to clean, stains on vinyl can usually be wiped away with a baby wipe or moist napkin. It’s both water-resistant and non-porous.
Leather is a long-time favorite among car owners and for good reason. Aesthetically, few other upholstery options can even begin to compare with genuine raw leather. That said, cleaning leather upholstery can be difficult. If you have leather upholstery, be sure to use only cleaning products specifically intended for leather application.
