Routine maintenance results in impeccable outdoor spaces. You wouldn’t dream of compromising the cleaning and remodeling schedule of a hotel lobby or restaurant dining room. The same diligence applies to outdoor living spaces, especially when it comes to patio umbrella care.
You can expect a durable, marine-grade TUUCI canopy to last approximately 1800 hours outdoors in year-round weather, with proper patio umbrella maintenance. Our weather-resistant systems are modular, so the canopy, frames, and fasteners can be replaced at any time, without the need for purchasing a new system.
If your canopy has a stain from an unknown source, spot clean it by using a soft-bristle brush dipped in a solution of 1 gallon of lukewarm water, 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide and a few tablespoons of mild liquid soap. Scrub the fabric vigorously, rinse with clear water, then allow it to air dry. Finish by applying an air-curing water repellent treatment to ward off future stains.
If the source of the stain is known, consult this chart for specific cleaning instructions.
To further extend the life of your shade system, be mindful of the weather. We recommend closing the canopy when winds reach 25 mph or greater to reduce the risk of damage.
When expanding the canopy, gently move each rib approximately six inches from the center pole so no fabric is caught in the struts before pressing the ‘Open’ button on the system.
At the end of the season before storing your TUUCI umbrella, thoroughly wash the canopy with a lukewarm water and mild soap solution. Allow the canopy to fully dry before collapsing and covering with the protective cover and storing in a dry, well-ventilated area.
