Boat Decks & Cabins
Can you ignore them, and put off cleaning? We don't advise it. Food and fish residue will cause bacteria driven odors. Mud and water will cause mildew. Oil and gasoline can damage or permanently stain carpet, vinyl, wood and fiberglass.
As soon as you can, vacuum and shampoo the carpet, wipe down the vinyl and navigation equipment, flush the live wells, and clean the storage areas and items to be stored. Life vests and fishing equipment will most likely be wet. Be sure they are rinsed and dry before storage. Never store anything that has salt residue.
Large Cabin Cruisers and Yachts require the same cleaning techniques as a motor home. Again, prompt cleaning is the key to keeping all surfaces in top condition. It doesn't require specialized products, just quality formulas that perform as expected .
The surfaces are familiar. You'll have a good deal of vinyl, cloth upholstery and canvas, carpet, plastic, chrome, stainless steel, and wood. Any of these materials is easily cleaned and polished with a selection of detailing products. Even the wood in modern boats is laminated so you are actually caring for plastic, not the wood itself.
The second step to proper maintenance is protection. Once these surfaces are clean, a protective product can extend time between cleanings. It can also preserve the materials for the life of the vessel. Boats depreciate on an escalated scale. Protective maintenance will do a lot to prevent this.
