Keeping a Tent Clean
If you buy a tent or pick up a tent rental Kansas City, MO to take with you to trade shows, corporate events or any other sort of sales or event scenario, keeping the tent clean is going to be a recurring issue. Luckily, the tents you’ll find at Big T Tent Rental and Sales are of a high quality, stain resistant and easy to care for, but if you want to get a lot of years of good use out of your tent, you’re going to need to keep it clean.
Your Tent Cleaning Kit
For starters, you’re going to need the right equipment to wash your tent. You generally can’t just throw it in the wash. A good tent cleaning kit should consist of the following…
>> Rubber gloves
>> Mild soap
>> Warm water
>> Scrubbing sponges
You don’t want to use detergents on a tent, as harsh detergents can eat away at the water-repellent attributes of a tent. Use some mild soap mixed with warm water. Try out some tent soaps from a camping supplier store.
Shake the tent out and lay it out completely flat on the ground. You should preferably lay the tent out on soft grass to ensure that it doesn’t get torn or ripped on rocks, concrete or gravel. Scrub it thoroughly with your sponges, one side and then the other. If you have an especially large tent, you may want to get some help if you insist on cleaning it yourself, as this can be a big, time consuming job.
Rinse the tent off and then get it ready to dry.
Setting the tent up in the backyard to dry is a good way to handle smaller and medium sized tents. In any event, make absolutely certain that you are letting the tent dry completely before you fold it up and store it.
How Often Should You Clean Your Tent?
Luckily, as long as you take care of your tent, you shouldn’t have to clean it too often. Maybe once or twice a year as needed. You’ll be able to tell when it needs cleaning. It may become mildew if you leave it set up for a long time in more humid areas or if you store it without letting it dry completely. It may also become stained. Otherwise, you really only need to shake it off now and then and clean it about once a year.
Barring the extra large tents, most of the tents you can get from Big T Tents aren’t exactly high maintenance. As long as you care for them, store them properly and you’re not setting them up at mudding events on a weekly basis, you should have absolutely no trouble keeping your tent clean.
That said, if you need a larger tent, renting is often the way to go simply because this means that cleaning it isn’t your job. Finding the space to clean a large tent, alone, can be a major pain. With delivery and clean, high quality tents, Big T Tents can make it so you never have to take a scrubber to a tent as long as you live.
