Care Instructions

General Recommendations
  • Our umbrellas are engineered to withstand light to moderate wind conditions. Do not leave an open umbrella unattended. Always close the umbrella and secure the ties when not in use.
  • If severe weather is expected, it is advisable to remove the umbrella from the base and store it indoors to protect it from storm debris and strong winds.
  • Do not place the umbrella base on sloped or uneven surfaces.
  • Using a cover will reduce the need for cleaning and extend the life of the umbrella.
Canopy Fabric
  • Upon delivery, you may notice discolored lines or creases in the canopy from production and shipping. This is not a defect in the fabric and the lines will disappear with use. To speed the process, open the umbrella, rinse the canopy with water and let it dry in the sun.
  • Regularly rinse the canopy with water to prevent dirt from deeply embedding in the fabric.
  • For spot cleaning, use a solution of 1/4 cup mild soap per gallon of water. Gently scrub with a soft bristle brush and rinse thoroughly.
  • For persistent stains or mildew, use a solution of 1 cup bleach and 1/4 cup mild soap per gallon of water. Gently scrub with a soft bristle brush and rinse thoroughly.
  • Sunbrella┬« fabric is water repellent and mildew resistant. However, if the canopy is wet from precipitation or cleaning, allow it to dry completely before closing. This prevents mildew from forming.
  • Do not dry clean canopy fabric.
Umbrella Frame and Base
  • The pole, arms, base and mechanisms may be cleaned with water and a non-abrasive cloth. Use mild soap as need; rinse thoroughly.
  • In coastal regions in particular, regular cleaning will extend the life of the umbrella.
