The automotive consoles frequently need repairs or restorations. In most cases, the fabric or the materials in the console isn’t of high-quality, and the leather easily get dirty or scratched if you have kids and pets particularly dogs traveling with you at the time. Repairing a damaged console is complicated and usually requires rebuilding the foam in the console. Our auto upholsterers at Car Upholstery Simi Valley are specialists in repairing automotive consoles.
The fabric used by car makers in upholstering center consoles looks and works great, but not sturdy enough. The paper-thin polyurethane vinyl upholstery can peel or tear even by a tiny scratch. Most car dealers will replace your damaged console with a new one, but they will still use the same materials again and overcharge you. We recommend you don’t take that path and instead call us, Car Upholstery Simi Valley. Our car upholstery technicians will reupholster your console with a higher quality and more durable fabric. The best of it is that you can’t tell the difference and we will charge you two or three times less than a car dealer will charge.
This is one of the most common forms of damages to car upholstery. Your beloved pet like dogs can damage your car seats. In some cases, the damage is so bad that the seat cover, as well as the whole thing, needs to be replaced. The foam beneath the seat cover has been to re-patched to bring the car seats to its original form.
In most new cars the bucket seats are substituted for bench seats in the forward compartment. As back seats are often less used, they tend to last longer than the buckets seats in front. But as we mentioned earlier, the upholstery will need repairs or replacements eventually. Usually, the damage originates at the corner a loose thread perhaps while scooting out the door. When one thread gets loose, the others start too, and then another, and so on. If this keeps continuing, a small tear in the fabric can turn into a significant foam damage.
When a bench seat needs repairing or re-upholstering, our car upholstery technicians at Car Upholstery Simi Valley are specialists. We repair this sort of damage by only removing the damaged areas, and then replacing the damaged foam with brand new foam-backed fabric. Also, we patch the torn fabric with a color-matching original fabric. We also reupholster the entire bench seat with new fabric if it is the only way to go.
It’s not necessary to replace an entire seat cover if a small section is damaged. Repairing small damages to the seatback and cushions saves time and money when compared to full replacement. But there are some advantages of replacing the seatback and cushions at the same time and it’s mostly aesthetics. Doing the whole thing at once makes the seats looking new and cleaner.
All car seats eventually will damage or degrade after a certain time. In most cases, it is the fabric that deteriorates first, then the foam takes the beating. If the car maker uses poor quality foam, the seat will go flat even before there are signs of fabric wearing. To bring the car seat to its original condition, remove the seat cover, strip the frame, and work on the foam. Use sturdy rebound foam instead of using the same poor quality foam to rebuild and reshape the seat. Steaming is a great way to restore polyurethane foam to its original shape, but the process isn’t as effective. Rebuilding the foam of the car seat helps improve lower back support with thicker padding. After working on the foam, we can reinstall the original seat cover. It’s not necessary to change the fabric if it in good shape.
