C.   Cleaning and Maintenance
Additional cleaning information is provided by the
manufacturer and is included with this manual in the
owner’s packet.
The following information should be useful in helping
you keep your carpet looking well maintained.
Four Winns offers a variety of weather covers for
protection of the boat and associated equipment.
Continued exposure can damage the upholstery
and seating. The seating can become thoroughly
saturated with water if not adequately protected. Refer
to Section O - Weather Covers for more information.
Carpet made with Olefin   fiber possesses built-in
stain and soil release for easy, less costly mainte-
nance. Regular vacuuming and occasional sham-
pooing will help it stay attractive and serviceable.
D.   Stain Removal Testing
Even the most stubborn stains can be removed from
Olefin fiber following the procedures outlined. Stains
were selected as being representative of spills
commonly occurring on carpets. Stains were pressed
into the carpet to simulate foot pressure following a
spill. Stains were applied to a two-inch square section
and allowed to penetrate. Removal was performed
after two weeks. Carpets were tested for stain removal
by an independent laboratory. Stain removal was
effective for the all the stains selected. Results are
shown in the table on the following page.
The appearance and longevity of the exterior
upholstery will be affected by water saturation.
Protect these items appropriately.
B.   Exterior Carpets
The removable exterior grade carpeting may be
periodically washed with mild laundry soaps or
shampooed, dried and reinstalled. It is 100% UV
stabilized Olefin   polypropylene fiber with rubber
backing. See Figure N-15.
E.   Stain Removal Procedures
Regular maintenance such as vacuuming, hosing or
washing should be performed. Most stains and mildew
are easily removed from carpet made with Olefin fiber
using common household cleaners. Refer to Table I.
Prior to using any mild laundry soaps or carpet
shampoo, always conduct a colorfast test on a
small inconspicuous portion of carpet before
applying to entire carpet.
Olefin   fiber is so resistant to chemi cal attack that
Clorox   bleach may be used to clean up any mildew
that may result from exces sive wet ness.
DO NOT dry carpeting in an automatic dryer.
