Thoroughly Wet and Dry New Canvas
New canvas may benefit from being thoroughly wetted and allowed to dry before its first use. This process helps the canvas fibers to swell and seal, enhancing its water repellency and durability.
To clean the canvas, use a soft brush and cold water only. Gently brush away any dirt, debris, or stains. Avoid using soaps, detergents, cleaning fluids, or insecticides, as they may compromise the fabric's water repellency and overall performance.
Avoid Harsh Chemicals
Keep the canvas away from petrol, solvents, and other harsh chemicals. These substances can cause damage to the fabric and reduce its protective properties.
Promptly Remove Contaminants
Do not allow bird droppings, earth, sand, or vegetable matter to remain in contact with the fabric. Promptly remove any contaminants to prevent staining or potential damage.
Mildew Spot Treatment
If mildew spots appear, brush them off before they become attached to the fabric. Persistent mold or mildew growth should be treated with a suitable anti-fungal chemical according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Canvas that has been cleaned extensively may require reproofing. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines for reproofing the canvas to restore its water repellency and ensure continued protection.
