Lack of proper cleaning and conditioning of products with vinyl coverings will result in damage to the vinyl, to include cracking and peeling. Effective cleaning and conditioning of vinyl surfaces helps prevent sweat and body oils from seeping through the vinyl., rendering it uncomfortable and unhygienic for use. If not cleaned regularly, sweat and body oil build up will break down the vinyl, resulting in reupholstery by a Leather Doctor being required.

The Advantage Of Vinyl Over Leather
While giving a similar finish to leather, vinyl is durable and affordable, making it an optimal choice for home furnishings, vehicle, caravan and boat seating café and restaurant seating as well as gym and medical equipment. Vinyl seating can also look great in offices and waiting rooms as it offers comfort and style with the appearance of leather, at a fraction of the price. Despite the various aspects of damage that can occur, vinyl upholstery is in fact fairly resistant to daily wear and tear and weather elements. Being family and child-friendly makes vinyl upholstery a fabulous choice for the home and outdoor vinyl is fantastic for its ability to be rather impenetrable to water.
