Caring for Your Casita Canopy Graphic

At San Diego Sign Company, we stand behind our products 100%, even after they’ve left our warehouse. We also know that you, our customers, want to keep your products looking and functioning like brand-new for as long as possible. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at our popular Casita Canopy and how to keep your canopy graphics looking as though they just came off the printer.

The life expectancy of your Casita Canopy has to do with a couple of different factors, including: (a) how it is used, (b) how well it is maintained, and (c) how it is stored. Depending on your specific event, your Casita may need to be cleaned before it can be packed and stored.

Here are some helpful tips for cleaning and storing your Casita Canopy to keep it looking great for many years to come:

  1. If your tent has any dirt on it, you’ll want to brush as much of that off as possible before using any cleaners.
  2. NEVER put your canopy in a washing machine or dryer.
  3. For any stains, spot clean with a carpet cleaner or spot remover like Shout!™. You will want to refrain from using any detergent-type cleaners on the UV Casita as this could affect the water resistance of the tent fabric. However, stock canopies can be hand washed with a mild detergent like liquid dish soap and air dried. Rinse thoroughly and allow the tent to dry completely.
  4. Before storing, be sure the tent is completely dry, especially along finished seams. DO NOT store when damp or wet as mold may develop.
  5. Store in a cool, dry area. (It is recommended to store your tent in its travel bag or hard case).

Don’t forget that there are lots of cool add-ons and accessories that can go with your Casita to add an extra “wow” factor to your display. There is the option to add backwalls and sidewalls to any Casita. We also carry flag connectors (these work with small feather banners), sand bag covers, canopy bags and La Caja hard cases for our Casita Canopies, so you’re sure to find absolutely everything you need for a complete, stunning tent display.
