Top Tips - Caring for your canvas

Top Tips for Caring for Your Canvas Side Panels and Roof Linings 

Get ready for the summer season with our top care tips. 

  • Ensure canvas panels are secured firmly on the gazebo - this is the easiest location to clean them in
  • Brush off all loose dirt, spiderwebs, leaves etc
  • Using a soft sponge and warm soapy water to wet the canvas
  • With a soft brush use circular motions on the canvas to remove grime and mildew
  • Allow canvas to dry

Repeat a couple of times a year to keep your canvas in good condition.

As our canvas side panels and roof linings are UV resistant and made with a colour-stable cloth, please do not use any chemical cleaners on the canvas as this may damage the fabric. 

Keep an eye on our blog for other useful tips for your garden buildings!
