Care and Cleaning

CAUTION: Never steam clean, dry clean, or machine dry these fabrics – AIR DRY ONLY. For storage, place fabric on a shelf or in a breathable container. Do not store fabric on the ground. NEVER POWERWASH FABRICS.

Ultimate Sunbrella Canvas

Ultimate Sunbrella® Canvas can withstand years of normal exposure to freezing water and debris while retaining their color and strength. They carry a 10-year, limited manufacturer’s warranty and feature a water and stain resistant finish which simplifies cleaning.

To prevent the need for vigorous cleaning and to maximize the life of your cover, the fabric should be rinsed off with a hose regularly to remove dirt and other debris. The fabric should have a deep cleaning every 2-3 years. Ultimate Sunbrella® Canvas does not promote mildew growth. However, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric.

For simple stains or a light cleaning the fabric may be washed with a solution of mild detergent (i.e. Woolite or Dawn) and lukewarm water. Let the solution soak into the fabric and use a soft-bristle brush to scrub gently. Rinse thoroughly with clean water until all cleaning residue is removed and then air dry.

For a deep cleaning or to remove stubborn stains (i.e. mildew, roof run-off, etc.), prepare a solution of one cup of bleach, 1/4 cup of mild detergent, and one gallon of water. Allow the solution to soak into the fabric for 15 minutes. Use a soft-bristle brush to scrub gently. Rinse thoroughly with clean water until all cleaning residue is removed and then air dry. After a deep cleaning or five years of use, the water repellent finish (i.e. 303 High Tech Fabric Guard) should be reapplied to the fabric.

Your air conditioner cover can be machine washed in a front-load washer using cold water with a mild detergent and air dried.

Premium Canvas Covers

Our Premium Canvas Covers are made of heavy duty commercial grade marine material designed to withstand years of exposure to moisture, snow, leaves, dirt and debris. They resist mildew, sun-rot, and atmospheric chemicals while retaining their color and strength. They carry a 5-year, limited manufacturer’s warranty and feature a water and stain repellant finish which simplifies cleaning.

To prevent the need for vigorous cleaning and to maximize the life of your cover, the fabric should be rinsed off with a hose regularly to remove dirt and other debris. The fabric should have a deep cleaning every 2-3 years. Premium® Canvas does not promote mildew growth. However, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric.

For simple stains or a light cleaning the fabric may be washed with lukewarm water. We do not recommend using soap or cleaners, however, as these may remove the waterproof finish. Should it become necessary to re-waterproof your cover, a commercial product such as 303 High Tech Fabric Guard may be used.
