Best way to clean boat carpet?

12 posts in this topic

I have a Lund Pro V that after several years of use needs to have the carpets cleaned. When I think about this I see a picture in my head that shows me out fishing in the rain with soap suds rising from the carpet.

I've thought of using a power washer to clean it but thought I could maybe learn from someone elses mistake. Anybody had any luck?

The Oxy Clean stuff works wonders on rust and general stains on marine carpet. Spot treat and brush in, then power wash out.

Discolored sun faded carpet, not much one can do there.

Thanks Backwater. I'm off to Vermilion next week and will clean it when I get back. Thanks for your help!

On my Pro V (1775) I take out the panel that allows you access to your livewell pumps. Pull the plug and park the boat on a hill so water flows to the back of the boat. Pressure washer (I am capable to use hot water as the pressure washer has a burner) and spike in some carpet shampoo. Do that, let it sit for a bit and then blow it all back out.

A little Tide works wonders as well! (Keyword little...you don't want all the suds!)

I have a 2004 Lund and this year I took the easy way out.

I took it to the quarter car wash, pulled the plug, jacked it up and sprayed it from front to back. First pass soap and next two passes rinse. Cost $1.50 Time twelve minutes.

The carpet looks as good as new and the area where the floor meets the walls are clean and totally clear of dirt. The nap of the carpet is raised back up and it looks great.

Two months later the carpet still looks good and no suds when fishing in the rain.

Cheap and easy that's the way I like it !
