DO NOT RE-PROOF A COVER THAT HAS NOT BEEN CLEANED FIRST
. Once your cover has been cleaned and dried to a satisfactory standard, it may need to be re-proofed using Renovo®,
Holmenkol®, or Fabsil®
. A re-proofer can be painted on with a paintbrush (decant into a glass jar first) or can be sprayed on with an aerosol. Concentrate on the seams and let the proofer spread into the canvas. You can then go in with the brush to work it into the canvas. Try to apply a nice even coating. Leave to dry. Depending on when this was last done, you may have to apply a second thin coating. Keep the re-proofer away from the windows, clean off any spills with a clean, dry cloth. (Our recommendation is that products manufactured from acrylic canvas should be laundered and re-proofed annually. This process reduces the build-up of salt and dirt abrasives, mildew and “green algae growth”. We cannot guarantee the removal of mildew and algae from covers that have been neglected over a long period of time). We can offer a laundering service, see here for more details.
