There is no doubt that if you want to enjoy your terrace or garden at 100 % at any time, you need a good outdoor parasol to protect yourself from the sun. Especially if you live in the south of Andalusia or on the Costa del Sol, having a shady area in summer is something non-negotiable.
There are parasols with eccentric mast, with crank, orientable, with or without wheels in different sizes, colours... all have in common the same feature: they have to be always ready to use them when the weather permits.
Just like your pool or lawn needs a good tuning, your parasols are not going to be less. Here are some tips to help keep your parasols and umbrellas fresh and your outdoor space cool this season.
1. Clean the sunscreen regularly.
2. Close the umbrella when you are not using it.
3. Avoid mold stains.
If you’ve ever closed your parasol with a wet tarp, you may have found some small green spots on the tarp the next day.
It is no secret that keeping things wet creates moisture and mould, which can be harmful to people in addition to deteriorating the fabric.
4. Pay attention to the mast and rods of your parasol.
On the other hand, parasols with wooden masts are usually more delicate because they need treatment with specific products to prevent cracks or cracks.
5. Use a suitable parasol foot.
6. Count with specialized technical service.
No one is exempt from any accident with our parasols, so it is advisable to have the support of an official technical service to deal with these eventualities.
Stay tuned to what is happening.
