Dry Up Your Party Tent for Storage!

For those who love camping, they know exactly what party tents mean to them. For this reason, it is a fact that keeping a tent in good condition is inevitable. Although there can be cheaper solutions where a tent can be bought for a one time use and later get disposed, most valuable tents need to be cleaned regularly and stored in good condition for later use. A well conditioned tent will end up serving the owner for so many seasons and more so, in bad weather that one can contend with. Imagine a situation where you have scheduled a trip and during the packing process you decide to cancel it altogether due to the tent's status.

Once you are done with the party, ensure that the tent is cleaned to get rid of dirt and dried before storage. One fact that you should be aware of is that the tent must be dried before being packed in the store. This helps prevent rot and dampness from setting in. Chances are high that the party was held on a rainy season and since it cannot be stored wet, it should be dried in the sun before being swept out the inside using a whisk broom. The earlier this tent dries, the better it is to avoid mold as well as mildew. Once it is dry, remember to sweep it again before refolding it back as practiced previously. The poles, stakes and ropes of your tent should be wiped out before storing them in different bags.

It is a wise idea to waterproof your tent before storage. However, this should be practiced on a clean and dry tent. You can apply a coating of the waterproofing spray by smooth and even strokes such that the whole surface is covered. There are instructions on the manual for this procedure that can be followed for better results. Once dry, you can add yet another coat of the spray just to make sure that things are done right. This time, the tent can be allowed to dry completely before storage. You can also consider waterproofing such a tent in preparation for the party, and once the party is thrown, go back to dry, and clean it before storage.

When washing the tent, you are advised to use lukewarm water, a soft brush and a mild detergent to wash off the debris and dirt from the surface. While doing the cleaning, remember to wash the dirt off starting from the top, going downwards to the bottom of your tent. This time, you can then dry it up in the sun and once it is completely dry, it can be folded as shown before storage.

There are different qualities of party tents and to get the best, one should do the shopping widely. You can visit online stores and by a few clicks you will see different sizes, qualities and prices to choose from. A good quality tent may go a little higher in terms of the price. One great thing about the quality party tent is that it is easy to handle and it is going to serve you for many seasons.
