2019 has been busy for your business and we still have a month to go. You and your canopy have been out and about at various tradeshows, fairs, markets, games, networking events, etc. To say that you both may need some extra care this winter, may be an understatement. Now might be the time that a lot of you decide to hibernate and that includes your canopy (unless you’re Ski AK!). If you don’t plan to be using your canopy during the winter months, be sure to follow these 3 tips to make sure that as soon as spring arrives, you are ready to go.
(Follow these tips in order for best results)
1. TAKE THE TOP OFF THE FRAME
The first thing you want to do to prepare your canopy for hibernation is to take the top off properly. This is really important! Your canopy is an investment, make sure you show it some love. All you have to do is make sure that when you put it away at your last event, that you do it the right way (but make sure you dry it completely before you put it in the bag, tip #2). Do your best to fold it nicely versus stuffing it into the bag. This way, you won’t have to replace or repair any of it when you take it out after winter.
2. DRY THE TOP
Obviously, you don’t want to pack your canopy top away if there is any sign of wetness. Trust us, make sure your top is entirely dry. You wouldn’t keep your wet clothes in the washer all winter, right? Same goes for your canopy top! Avoid damage, dry it out.
3. KEEP IT IN ITS PROVIDED BAG
They’re convenient of course. but the bag we provide your canopy with plays a major role in protecting it. Like your canopy, these bags are sturdy. They will keep the dust mites away and won’t let your canopy get scratched or dinged up while it’s in storage. We provide a bag for every order-put them to use!
