Shade Sails Cleaning & Maintenance

Aesthetic appeal, durability, and functionality – these words best describe shade sails for homes and commercial properties. However, time and constant exposure to the elements catch up to them. Let Brisbane Shades & Sails help you prolong a shade sail’s lifespan through regular cleaning and maintenance.

Dirt and water, among other things, can collect on pockets and depressions in the shade sail. If left unchecked, they can place undue stress on the fabric and induce premature wear and tear. Professional cleaning is the best solution to keep your beautiful shade sails vibrant and strong.

Apart from being one of the leading suppliers of shade sails in South East Queensland, Brisbane Shades & Sails also offers shade sails cleaning services. Our years of expertise in designing and building these structures also translate to their maintenance. Here’s a look into how we perform cleaning and maintenance on your shade sail.

  • Inspection: Our team arrives on-site to assess the condition of the entire shade sail system, down to the small parts holding the shade cloth together. They have the experience and expertise to spot any issues regarding the product’s integrity and will take appropriate action when and where needed.
  • Cleaning: If the shade cloth shows dirt or mildew growth, we take it down and clean it using professional cleaning products and equipment. The process requires familiarity with the materials and careful handling to mitigate damage and maintain the shade cloth’s protective properties. Hence, we ensure that our cleaning process is up to industry standards.
  • Re-tension: The tension holding the shade cloth must be set with precision. Too much tension risks damaging the cloth. Meanwhile, too little of it risks excessive fluttering and sagging, which can be detrimental to the shade, especially under windy and rainy weather. Given these factors, we carefully inspect each corner and adjust the tension as necessary.
  • Replacement: If the components aren’t providing enough tension, we replace them with new items made with the same Australian-made steel. We advise getting the tension on the shade sail checked at least once a year to maintain its integrity.

Some tell-tale signs of wear and tear among shade sails include fading, sagging, scratches, and tears on the shade cloth. You may also notice weakness or damage in the posts and parts. These signs are relatively easy to spot, so don’t hesitate to take prompt action as needed.
