We recommend cleaning any debris off of the tarp using a high-pressure hose. If leaves, sticks, etc lay in one spot too long they can stain your tarp.
We also highly recommend every six months to pressure wash and use a grease-cutting detergent ie.
Dawn dish soap with a brush on a pole. Then coat with 303 aerospace protectant. It will greatly increase the life expectancy of your tarp and protect it from damaging UV light.
Occasionally check the tension of the bungee cords. If any feel loose replace them. We can provide you with bungee cords.
