Upholstery Cleaning Guides

Freedman Seating Company is committed to the health and safety of the passengers and staff of customers and their customers and riders. To fight the spread of COVID-19 and other pathogens, transit authorities, private operators and transportation contractors are considering various options to disinfect their buses. FSC is proud to carry a variety of anti-bacterial upholstery for the transportation industry. Our trusted suppliers for these products include industry leaders Morbern, CMI, Enduratex, and Camira.

While most cleaning instructions for vinyl and fabric upholstery include using mild soap and water, it is important to follow guidelines provided by the vinyl manufacturer.

Below is a compilation of cleaning/disinfecting guides and announcements provided by upholstery manufactures, past and present. If you have any questions, please contact us or the manufacturer directly.
