Fabric Cleaning Guides

Sunbrella® fabrics are amongst the best on the market for stain resistance, mildew resistance and overall performance; however, to keep your fabric looking good it is important to properly maintain the fabrics. This can be accomplished by simply brushing off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics, wiping up spills as soon as they occur or spot cleaning soon after stains occur. However, periodically a thorough cleaning will likely be needed. Please utilize our fabric cleaning guides below to effectively clean your Sunbrella fabrics.

Please note the following tips for maintaining Sunbrella®  fabrics: Sunbrella® air-dries very quickly. Machine drying is not necessary. Never put Sunbrella fabrics in your dryer. If fabric has some wrinkling, use an iron, if necessary, but only on the synthetic* setting. As some irons exceed the recommended 100°F/38°C temperature on the synthetic setting, test a small inconspicuous area before ironing entire piece. Never use a steamer or iron set to steam setting. * Synthetic fabric heat settings normally do not exceed 150°F/66°C. As part of the finishing process, Sunbrella fabrics are treated with a fluorocarbon finish, which enhances water repellency. This finish is designed to last for several years, but must be replenished after a thorough cleaning which typically removes the original finish and reduces the fabric’s water repellency. As a rule of thumb fabrics should be re-treated after thorough cleaning or after 5 years of use with a fluorocarbon-based water repellency product such as Apco or 303 Products.
