Cleaning a sun sail is not most people's favourite late-summer activity. But with these tips and tricks, along with the proven products from WAREMA, this chore becomes a comfortable – and more importantly, rewarding – activity. The most basic question you need to consider is when to clean your sun sail. The end of the season has proven to be the best time for this task. This saves you time and effort during spring cleaning, so that you can enjoy the first rays of springtime sun right when they arrive, without any hassle. It also means that the sun sail will be clean and dry when you put it away for the winter. Here, sun sails with an electric drive are simply rolled up and stowed in the protective winter cover. Sun sails without a drive should be dismantled and stored in a dry location in your house or basement.

There are a few rules to keep in mind when you clean your sun sail. Adhering to these rules is the best way to preserve your sun sail's appearance, functionality and value. The absolute don'ts include:

  • Washing machines
  • High pressure washers
  • Caustic and aggressive household detergents

These can damage your sun sail and/or weaken its impregnation. For the same reasons, you should refrain from using any stiff brushes or abrasive sponges. Instead of these, WAREMA offers helpful products like our high-grade cleaning agent concentrate for sun shading products, which was specially developed for external shading products and their materials.

Bird droppings, mould, mildew, algae, dirt – your sun sail is exposed to numerous forms of soiling throughout the year. With WAREMA slat cleaning products, you can clean your sun sail in no time. Try our cleaning glove, for example. Easy to put on, this glove is made of microfibre fabric which acts like a dirt magnet, even over larger areas. This allows you to prevent damage to the fabric and take full advantage of your sun sail's impregnation. For optimal results, WAREMA has also developed a highly effective concentrate for external sun shading systems which was tested and certified by GRM, the Gütegemeinschaft Reinigung von Fassaden e. V. (Quality Association for Facade Cleaning). This concentrate is gentle, yet powerful and can cover a lot of fabric. One more tip: if you find that some soiling is still visible after you've cleaned your sail, you can use a non-marking rubber eraser to remove the rest. These methods are the best way to ensure that your sun sail's appearance and value are maintained for as long as possible. If you have any other questions about this topic, please contact your specialist dealer.
