For:  SUNBRELLA

 

Sunbrella  fabric should be cleaned regularly before substances such as dirt, roof particles, etc. are allowed to accumulate on and become embedded in the fabric.  The fabric can be cleaned without being removed from the installation.  Simply brush off any loose dirt, hose down and clean with a mild solution of natural soap in lukewarm water (no more than 100 degrees F).  Rinse thoroughly to remove soap.  DO NOT USE DETERGENTS.  Allow to dry.

  For more stubborn cases:  Soak the fabric for approximately twenty minutes in a solution of no more than cup of a non-chlorine bleach and a cup natural soap per gallon of water at approximately 100 degrees F.  Rinse thoroughly in cold water to remove all of the soap.  Note:  Excessive soaking in non-chlorine bleach can deteriorate sewing threads.  This method of cleaning may remove part of the water repellency and the fabric should receive a new application of an air-curing fluorocarbon water repellent treatment for synthetics, if water repellency is a factor.  Some water repellent chemicals may cause serious damage to fibers. Contact you vendor for details.

DO NOT machine wash or dry-clean.

DO NOT wash fabric with a harsh or strong solution or scrub too vigorously with an abrasive cleaner.

DO NOT overlook small rips or tears.  If a sharp object punctures the fabric, it can be expertly repaired by our crafts-people.
