Clean Outside Surfaces and Remove Moss
Canvas Cleaning for Caravan awning, tents and sails
Trees, birds, seaspray, car exhaust, mould and dogs are just some of the culprits for staining awnings, so as far as is practicable, protect your awning from trouble.
Cleaning services for canvas products is limited in the UK with many issues of damage and lost in the post items when people send their valuable camping items away for cleaning.
OUTDOOR SEWING SOLUTIONS recommendation is as follows.
- Erect your tent, Caravan awning or sail at home and with a hose and cloth clean off any dirt you may have on the awning.
- Clean with Wet & Forget by spraying on with your Garden Sprayer
- Reproof if required with reproofing such as Grangers Fabsil. There are many options for sale at your local outdoor shop or on the Internet. OSS do not currently recommend one product.
Do not ever water jet your outdoor materials as this will only damage the materials and remove any waterproofing the materials might have.
Always wait until the canvas is dry before dealing with mud or dirt, when it can usually be removed with a stiff brush. Stubborn marks can be tackled with plain water, but anything stronger should be avoided if possible. If too unsightly, try soap and water but never detergent. Any area touched by the soap solution will have to be reproofed.
Windows with water and wiped with a soft cloth to remove drips.
Small patches can be treated with an aerosol proofer and should be applied when the awning is dry and in a well ventilated place. Note the proofer contains solvents which are highly flammable. For larger areas it may be better to use a soft paint brush. Ideal conditions are a warm, dry day, but avoid hot sun which will dry the proofer out too quickly. Do not forget to protect vinyl windows, mudwalls, grass and tarmac while using products which contain spirit-based solvents. Do not pack the awning away until the solvent has completely dried out.
