I screwed up.. Advice Needed

13 posts in this topic

Excellent article with some photo's.  The seats looked EXACTLY like in this article when I opened it up.

thankfully, I'm still seeing no mention of any damage beyond the upholstery and fabrics inside interior.

Does anyone know if they have to actually REMOVE the seats fully from the vehicle to reupholster them?

If so, it would seem that a good plan would be:

 - new seat covers and foam

 - thorough clean of seats when they have no foam or cover. I'm thinking Lysol like Skyman suggests

 - thorough cleaning of interior while the seats are out.. Lysol again.

 - Sun dried thoroughly.

Personally I would put the car back in the garage with a powerful electrical dehumidifier ...mold can't live with zero humidity. 

The smell will go away too..

Found this suggestion at Google... to reduce humidity..

Or a tray of kitty litter, or dried rice.

Looks like most of the online advice is to control humidity to prevent rust.

I read that as dried mice ... I may be getting old ...
