Has your Sunbrella top or cover been around for a while and not quite performing the way it should? Like with waterproof clothing, Sunbrella fabrics need to be re-treated every so often to allow for maximum water repellency and stain resistance. We’ve gathered some useful tips from the guys at Sunbrella to guide you through re-treating your tops.
Sunbrella recommends the use of 303 High Tech Fabric Guard™ as the preferred re-treatment product for their fabrics. Fabrics should be re-treated after thorough cleaning or after five years of use.
- First., make sure you top is clean by following these steps
- Allow Sunbrella to completely air dry – DO NOT USE HEAT TO DRY SUNBRELLA
- Apply 303 Fabric Guard following the manufacturers instructions
- Make sure to use an even, thin coat and, after allowing to dry, apply a second thin, even coating of 303
