Protect before it is too late! - Often we only think of cleaning and protecting textiles after they have started to leak, have turned green with algae or have become contaminated with mildew. Taking preventive measures from the beginning, combined with an ongoing care and maintenance program, will help maximise the performance and lifespan of your sails, boat covers, awnings, tents, kites and other outdoor fabrics.
We would always recommend you consult with your manufacturer to establish an appropriate care program for your specific product.
