Product After Care

Ensuring your product Lasts a Lifetime

Care guidelines to help maintain your cover or tarpaulin.

Securing Your Cover

It is very important that you cover is correctly secured and tensioned. The more fixing points the better. This will prevent any unwanted flapping in high winds and stop any water from collecting/pooling on the cover.


Cleaning Canvas Fabric

We recommend cleaning your cover 1-2 times a year. Allow any mud or dirt to dry. Gently brush off with a soft, lint free, fabric pad or vacuum. The canvas fabric should be cleaned with a damp soft cloth or sponge using pure cold water. For heavy dirt, use a water and soft soap solution with a maximum temperature of 30°C and rinse with cold water. No detergents or pressure washers should be used as this will remove any rot resistant and waterproof finishes. Regular reproofing is recommended.


Cleaning PVC Fabric

Clean the fabric with a damp sponge using a dilute washing up detergent, rinse off with cold water. We recommend cleaning your PVC fabric cover 1-2 times a year. Do not use abrasive detergents, solvents or pressure washers.


Storing Your Cover

Fabrics should never be packed and stored damp. The fabric must be completely aired dry. All natural fibres are susceptible to mildew. For mildew to grow it requires heat and moisture. Mildew will result quickly on canvas if folded away wet or stored in a damp place. If the fabric is being stored for any length of time, this should be in a dry, well ventilated area.

When rolling up side panels and doors, roll towards the inside to prevent rain water from collecting in the crease.
