Boat upholstery cleaning
Despite its name, Elite Carpet Dry Cleaning does much more than professional carpet cleaning.
Our franchisees are experts in upholstery too – lounges, sofas; even boat upholstery.
Elite Airlie Beach services all types of boats from family runabouts to chartered sailboats and luxury yachts cruising Queensland’s Whitsunday region.
Marine craft can carry a surprising amount of upholstery: cushions, steering wheel covers, winch covers, hold-all pockets and swags to name a few.
The upholstery in boats is typically made of canvas, vinyl or leather: all need cleaning and protecting as provided by Elite’s trained technicians.
3 key benefits for boat upholstery and carpet cleaning
There are 3 key benefits to keeping the upholstery shipshape, says Elite Airlie Beach’s Corrina Ross:
- Protecting your investment
Regular professional care of your boat carpet and upholstery ultimately extends its life.
Professional cleaning of boat upholstery and carpet retains a welcoming bright and fresh look (particularly important for repeat charters and recommendations).
Clean carpets and upholstery don’t harbour potentially irritant and dangerous moulds and bacteria.
Why boats need fabric protection
Corrina Ross from Elite Carpet Dry Cleaning Airlie Beach says fabric protection is a ‘must’.
“The combination of sweat, sunscreen and humidity is tough on boat upholstery, particularly cushions,” Corrina explains.
“Fabric protection and regular professional cleaning keeps mould at bay.”
Caring for boat carpets
Most boats sailing the Whitsundays have carpet installed for safety grip. Boat carpets can suffer from the same hazards as carpets in a home of office – particularly drink and food spillages. Marine carpets are also subjected to sand and salt water which can be damaging.
And then there’s the occasional flooding: it’s rained or the sea suddenly turned choppy, a porthole was left open and the carpet is soaked. That’s when Elite Carpet Dry Cleaning comes to the rescue.
The boat cleaning process explained
Elite Carpet Dry Cleaning Airlie Beach services boats berthed at Airlie Beach, Shute Harbour and Port of Airlie, taking portable pro-quality steam cleaning equipment into the confines of the craft.
Elite’s cleaning system will rid your upholstery and carpets of dirt, sand, moulds, pollen, bacteria, stains and odours. The Elite cleaning process includes deodorising and sanitising.
Marine cushions and carpets can also be brought to its workshop for cleaning.
