To prevent formation of damaging mildew, shake out and air the canvas cover for several hours at
frequent intervals. Have any loose grommets or rips in the canvas repaired without delay. Failure to make
immediate repairs may allow a minor defect to develop into major damage. Mildewed canvas is best
cleaned by scrubbing with a dry brush. If water is necessary to remove dirt, it must not be used until
mildew has been removed. If mildew is present, stretch and pull fabric to examine for evidence of rotting
or weakening of fabric. If fabric shows indication of loss of tensile strength, it is probably not worth
retreatment. Oil and grease can be removed by scrubbing with soap and warm water. Rinse well with clear
water and dry.
