In a recent blog from the van based franchise, ChipsAway detailed some of its best tips for interior repairs, perfect for freshening up a car’s interior or preparing a vehicle for sale.

In the words of SMART repair franchise ChipsAway, “Whether you are preparing your vehicle to be sold or just want to freshen up your daily commute, repairing any damage in the car’s interior is always a good idea. It’s inevitable that your car’s interior will need some kind of repair over its lifetime, from holes in carpets to tears in the upholstery.” The van based franchise then offered the following repair tips:

1. Repairing car carpets - “Ripped carpet on the driver’s side can be a hazard and potentially cause an accident if the carpet becomes caught on the pedals. Repairing the carpet is also beneficial in preserving the car’s value.” You can either repair a tear in a carpet by carefully vacuuming it and then sewing any holes/rips, or by patching with a car carpet repair kit and adhesive. 

2. Repairing your car’s vinyl - In order to protect your vinyl, you should wrap paint protection film over it. If your vinyl develops a tear, a vinyl patch can be used to seal the damage. In the words of ChipsAway “Remove the damaged vinyl area and the lifting around it [,] cut a section of the vinyl accurately so that it will cover the damaged part, overlap the patch and seal the vinyl.”

3. Repairing tears in leather seats - “Tears in leather seats are a nuisance, however, luckily it doesn’t always mean you need new upholstery. The tears can be easily fixed using a repair kit, you can use the patches to fix up any holes or use liquid leather to hide any unsightly cracks and give the seats a nice finish.”
