Maintaining Neoprene Seat Covers for Long-Lasting Performance

Neoprene seat covers are known for their comfort, durability and protection. They can help maintain top condition of your car seats and offer long lasting performance. But you need to maintain them in order to keep them in good condition.

If you are looking for wet suit seat covers, neoprene is the ideal material to go with. Make sure that you have a regular cleaning routine so that the neoprene seat covers can be kept in pristine condition. There can be surface debris, dirt and dust on the seat covers and you can remove these regularly with a vacuum. Make sure that you use a soft brush attachment for this. When you do this regularly, dirt will not get embedded into the neoprene material. It will help keep your seat covers clean and fresh. Spot cleaning is important when there is a spill or stain. This way, permanent damage to your neoprene seat covers can be prevented. You can use upholstery cleaner or a mild detergent for this. Use this on a soft cloth and blot the spill or stain once it occurs. Make sure to act promptly so that the stain doesn’t set. It is not advised to use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners as it can cause damage to the material. You need to have the seat covers air dry before reusing them.

Hand washing can be done for deeper cleaning

To do this, you can fill a basin with lukewarm water and a mild detergent and agitate the water gently so that suds can be created. You can place the seat covers in the basin and use a soft cloth or brush to scrub them gently. You can scrub them in a circular motion. You need to rinse the covers thoroughly using clean water so that any soap residue is removed. They can then be hung to air dry. But make sure you do this in a shaded area away from direct sunlight. When purchasing neoprene seat covers, you can check whether they are machine washable as this will make cleaning up much easier. You can tumble dry the seat covers on a low heat setting or hang them to air dry.

It is important that you avoid excess sun exposure or heat

While neoprene seat covers are highly resistant to UV rays as well as heat, fading and deterioration can be caused when they are left in direct sun for a long time. So it is a good idea to park your car in a shaded area and if this is not possible, you can use a car sunshade to protect the neoprene seat covers. You should not leave damp or wet seat covers exposed to direct sunlight. There is a natural resistance of neoprene seat covers to mould and mildew but their growth can be promoted if the covers have long exposure to humidity and moisture. You need to make sure that the covers are fully dry before you store them.
