How to Clean Your Marine Carpet

There may come a time where you feel you need to clean your marine carpet, and if you are unsure of how to do it, it’s best to not try in order to ensure you do not damage your marine carpet. Marine carpet is wonderful for boats because it is designed to be stain-resistant and is made from solution-dyed Polypropylene fibers. As you know, carpet that’s put inside of a boat tends to get damaged and dirty in concentrated areas. The good news is that these kinds of carpets can very easily be cleaned without worry. All it takes is a little bit of the right knowledge, some patience, and the right tools.

How to Clean Marine Carpet

1. Be sure to vacuum

Just like you would vacuum a car after driving around in it and having guests sit inside and track dirt in, you should vacuum your marine carpet regularly. As particles from dirt, dust, and other elements settle into the carpet, it can create staining, which is never fun to try and get rid of. In order to stop the buildup before it gets too difficult to manage, vacuum regularly and keep these particles from building up and causing stains. Right before you try cleaning your marine carpet, you should be sure to vacuum in order to help loosen some of these particles that might have gotten trapped (and can be stubborn!).

2. Spot clean your marine carpet

Carpet for boats can easily get stained, just like any other kind of carpet. If your guests spill wine or some other kind of liquid on your carpet, you’ll want to get to it ASAP. The longer a spill or stain sits on the carpet, the harder it will be to get out, and depending on some liquids, it can be nearly impossible to get out. If what your guest spilled was a wet liquid, then you’ll want to blot away any excess and then treat the area with carpet cleaner solution.

3. Don’t cover it when it’s wet

If you have cleaned any part of your marine boat carpet or boat flooring and it is wet, be sure not to cover or store it into an enclosed space.
