How Do You Care for Your Patio and Pool Umbrella?

There is very little maintenance required for a high-quality patio and pool umbrella aside from periodic cleaning. With simple, consistent care and maintenance your patio and pool umbrella can provide many years of enjoyable shade and shelter. By regularly inspecting your umbrella and looking for any tears in the canopy, loose hardware, or any items which might require repair you can easily help to preserve your investment.

Of course, over a period of time your patio and pool umbrella will accumulate dust and dirt simply from being outside. Regularly brushing off the loose dirt using a soft brush or clean cloth will help keep dust and dirt from building up.

However, a periodic top down cleaning using a soft cloth or sponge along with dishwashing soap and lukewarm water followed by a rinse from a hose should remove any accumulation. Never use abrasive or harsh detergents or cleansers that can cause fading to the canopy material or damage the frame.

First-rate patio and pool umbrellas can withstand stronger winds and weather. Nevertheless, to prevent any safety issues or damage, always store away your umbrella if severe weather with high winds is approaching.

Superior patio and pool umbrellas are made with marine-grade canopies that resist mold and mildew, and frames and bases are made with rust-resistant aluminum. Regardless, if you will be storing your patio and pool umbrella, always be sure to let it completely air dry beforehand.
