Adding shade sails to your property has many advantages, but just like anything else, they last longer and look better if you do some maintenance on them. This is not difficult and it will make a big difference to the look of the sail as well as ensuring it remains in great condition for longer.
Sometimes, no matter how carefully the sail is positioned, sticks, leaves and dirt seem to stick on the top of it. Add dew or rain showers and it soon becomes a dark stain that should be washed off. However, it can’t be removed from the bottom side, so how can this be done?
The best way is the undo the tensioning chain and take it all down. This is not as difficult as it sounds as it is made to take down when necessary. Once the sail is down, you need to treat it with care to ensure it is not damaged in any way. Lift it to a clean spot, either on the lawn or a concrete driveway. Don’t fold it up as creasing it will damage the finish.
