Cleaning & Storage
Cleaning your CoverMates® patio furniture cover is a breeze. All of our material collections – Select, Classic, Elite, and Ultima – can be cleaned the same way.
For general maintenance, wash your cover once a month with a garden hose. This will help keep dust, dirt, and other materials from getting embedded in the cover.
If your cover needs a more thorough cleaning, use a mild soap and water. For scrubbing out any dirt or stains, use a sponge or a soft bristle brush. When you’re done, rinse the cover with clean water and let it air dry.
When washing your cover, do not use harsh cleaning agents, products containing bleach, stiff bristle brushes, or abrasive cleaning pads. These could damage your cover.
To avoid mold and mildew, do not fold or store your cover when damp or wet. Let it dry completely before storing it.
A note about washing machines: Many cover manufacturers recommend cleaning their covers in the washing machine. While our CoverMates® materials are more than capable of withstanding this type of cleaning, repeated machine washings will reduce the water-resistance of your cover. To maintain optimum performance, machine washing our covers should be avoided.
