Cleaning your RV’s Carpet and UpholsteryThursday, October 7, 2021
Your RV is your home away from home, letting you relax comfortably as you travel across the state or across the country. However, like any home, it’s only as comfortable as it is clean. When people are living in a small area like an RV for an extended period of time, it’s going to demand some cleaning to keep the occupants happy. We’ve got some tips for you here on how to keep your RV fresh and clean so that you can enjoy your trip to the fullest.
Cleaning your RV’s carpet
The combination of a small space and a group of people eating and drinking, all taking place on roads that can get bumpy means that you’ll have to regularly clean your RV’s carpet.
Vacuum as often as you would at home
Your RV’s carpet will get a lot of use in a short amount of time, so to keep odors and dirt away you’ll have to vacuum. A handheld vacuum should get the job done without taking up the space that a full-size vacuum would.
Treat spots and stains as they come up
Drinks and food are eventually going to spill on your RV’s carpet. The convenient thing, though, is that as you’re traveling you should have someone who’s got the free time to attend to this stain before it sets. You can keep commercial spot treatment solutions on hand, or simply mix up some soap and water to blot the stain out.
Protect your RV’s carpet
With the high volume of use that your carpet will experience, it’s well worth the investment to have a protective treatment applied to it. It’s relatively cheap, especially for a small amount of carpeting, and it will save you the money of replacing a heavily stained carpet.
Have your RV’s carpet professionally cleaned
This may seem like overkill to you, but the depth and quality of a professional carpet cleaning can add years to the life of your carpet. Not to mention, it’s much better to travel for hours and days when your carpet smells as fresh as the day it was installed. Check out our carpet cleaning service!
Cleaning your RV’s upholstery
For the same reason, it’s important to keep your carpet clean, your RV’s upholstery needs that level of attention. Upholstery can trap in stains and odors just like carpeting, and it will make your RV a little less cozy.
Cleaning leather upholstery
Leather seats are a nice touch to your RV until they start to crack and dry out with years of wear and tear. Having your leather upholstery regularly treated and cleaned will add years to its life as comfortable, good-looking furniture. While you can buy leather treatment solutions yourself, the process is best left up to professionals. We offer a thorough leather cleaning and restoration service that will keep your leather seats nice and fresh!
Cleaning fabric upholstery
Fabric upholstery may absorb more odors and stains than leather, but it’s also usually easier to keep fresh. Remember to check the label, though, as some fabrics require specific cleaning techniques. For most fabrics, you can lift out dirt and dust with regular vacuuming. For lingering odors, fabric fresheners can keep your RV smelling nice between deep cleanings. You can even wash some removable seat cushions if the label says it’s safe to do so.
We recommend at least one professional fabric upholstery cleaning per year, or per road trip. Our upholstery cleaning service will give your RV furniture a long-lasting freshness to carry you through your trip.
