Sun shade sails are a perfect addition to any park, backyard, or outdoor gathering spot.
These versatile sun shades need to be properly cared for, though. Thankfully,
these versatile patio covers are pretty easy to care for, especially with
the help of your shade installer and these easy tips.
Avoid Harsh Chemicals
Shade sails are made with ultraviolet protection in mind, and many chemicals
will actually damage this feature. Do not use bleach, pesticides, or other
harsh cleaning chemicals when cleaning your shade sails. Stick to a mild
cleaning detergent, or consult your shade installer for further recommendations.
Avoid High Pressure Cleaning
Just because shade sails can withstand sun and rain does not mean they
should be subjected to high pressure water. If you notice dirt or debris
on your shade sail, uninstall it and shake the debris off. Do not try
to clean it with a high pressure hose because you risk damaging it and
voiding your warranty.
In addition to cleaning your shade sail, you also need to be aware of its
installation. It should be pulled tightly to shade the most efficient
amount of space available. A professional shade installer should install
your shade sail, and he should come out periodically to check its tightness.
If the sail is allowed to flop or droop in the wind, it can become damaged.
If you choose to uninstall your shade sail for the winter, then it must
be stored correctly. Keep it folded and stored in a clean and dry place.
Make sure there is no danger from pests or rodents. If possible, store
it in a protective bag.
