Regular cleaning and maintenance is necessary to ensure that your fabric building is able to give the best return for your investment. Just think about all the things meet your fabric structure every single day. From birds and their droppings to fallen debris from trees like dead branches, rotten fruits and decayed leaves, all of these things can cause potential damage to the fabric roof and walls of your building.
Your fabric building, whether they’re hay sheds or temporary storage structures, sits exposed outside all day and night. Therefore, whether you choose to hire someone or do it yourself, it is important to clean this debris off the fabric regularly.
If you do choose to do the cleaning yourself, you need to make sure that when removing dirt and debris from the fabric you use soft instruments such as a dull edged broom or mop. Avoid using hard-edged tools like rakes or shovels. Otherwise, you may accidentally puncture the fabric. The same is true for any other type of fabric like grain bunker tarps, poultry curtains or hay tarps.
In addition, when cleaning the dirt off from the fabric, simply use mild soap and water. Do not use bleach or harsh abrasive products. Also, do not use a pressure washer or similar equipment to clean this structure. Doing so could jeopardize the protective layer of coating on the fabric and overall stability of the building.
Remove all organic materials from the base of your fabric building as well to avoid mold or mildew spots at the bottom of your cover or rust to your frame. In addition, avoid moisture or condensation inside your shelter by purchasing a vent kit. This ensures a cool and dry interior to keep your fabric structure and valuables inside safe from damage.
