snowmanAs sad as it is to move indoors after enjoying your offset patio umbrella all summer, taking a little extra time to take care of your commercial cantilever to keep it pristine for spring’s return. All of our industrial umbrellas are designed to handle the most rugged conditions and can easily be left outside for the winter. However, some precautions may still be required for harsher weather conditions.  Here’s a general breakdown of how to treat the common materials that show up on your large patio umbrella.

Metals
All of our metal has been powder coated, keeping it from rusting and we use all stainless steel hardware and cranks. We do suggest washing the aluminum ribs and then apply a coat of automotive wax for extra protection. Touch up any scratches with car paint in the appropriate color.

Fabrics
Designed to deter mold and mildew, acrylic fabrics can still harbor mold if the fabric remains dirty. To avoid black spots, vacuum or shake off any loose dirt on your heavy duty umbrella at the end of the outdoor season. For tough stains, use a mild soap such as Ivory Snow or Woolite.. The water should be cold to lukewarm. (Never more than 100°F/38°C.). Then rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue. Air dry only. Never apply heat to the fabric. In addition it is best to utilize a PVC storage cover that fits over the canopy of your patio umbrella.

Natural materials
The Iroko wood used our Industrial Grade umbrellas is the most durable of woods used to make commercial offset umbrellas. In order to maintain its original color, apply specialty oil at least once a year. Other painted woods will lose their color in the sun; replenish a faded coat with an acrylic paint recommended by a quality paint supplier.
