Caring for your shade sail properly is important, allowing you to maximise its potential to provide adequate protection and shelter. Fortunately, carrying out shade sails maintenance is easy. Every so often, you should check to see if it is still installed properly and hasn’t been loosened or damaged by strong winds or other external forces. The canopy should always be pulled taut and firm to prevent the wind from flapping it around. If you encounter a maintenance issue you can’t resolve on your own, don’t hesitate to call the team at Melbourne Shade Sails.

Cleaning Shade Sails

We at Melbourne Shade Sails have a cleaning service where we can remove your shade sail have it cleaned, do any repairs or restitching that may required and re-install your shade sail like new.

Over time, you will find that your shade sail becomes dirty and you will need to clean it. However, it is important that you don’t use harsh chemicals or agricultural chemicals when cleaning shade sails, as substances containing bleach, sulphur or halogens can destroy the shade sail’s UV stabilisers. This will make your shade sail wear out faster and will probably negate its warranty. In addition, you should avoid using products that contain pesticide components, metal alts or metal oxides, as these may react with the fabric, reducing its quality.

Instead, we recommend carrying out shade sail cleaning in Melbourne using a mild dish washing liquid, a soft scrubbing brush and a low-pressure water hose for a gentle clean. Using a high-pressure hose can damage the shade sail.

Thorough cleaning of shade sails should be done when the shade sail starts to look dirty. Most of the time, rainwater will keep it clean enough, but a good Delete cleaning will be needed to clear the accumulation of dirt and dried leaves that will no doubt have built up. Cold and moist conditions in the winter months can also cause mildew and mould growth, but this can be cleaned away using a low-pressure water blaster.
