Seasonal Care to Keep Your Open Air Cabana in Tip-Top Shape

As the seasons change, your Open Air Cabana remains the centerpiece of relaxation and rejuvenation, offering a sheltered haven for you, your family, and your friends. Yet, like any treasure, it deserves some tender loving care to remain in its prime. On that note, here are some seasonal care tips that will keep your Open Air Cabana looking and functioning at its best.

Regular Cleaning and Maintenance

To keep your Open Air Cabana looking amazing, it’s necessary to establish a regular cleaning and maintenance routine. With a soft brush, start by gently sweeping away any loose debris from the fabric top and frame. This simple step will prevent dust and dirt from accumulating, making the cleaning process more manageable in the long run.

Cleaning the Fabric Top

The Tempotest® fabric top of your Open Air Cabana is not only beautiful but also durable. To clean it, mix a solution of mild detergent and warm water. Using a soft brush or sponge, gently scrub the fabric, paying special attention to any areas with extra buildup. Rinse thoroughly with a hose, and allow it to air dry completely.

Frame Maintenance

SummerSpace Open Air Cabanas feature a sturdy SummerShield™ aluminum frame. Periodically inspect the frame for any signs of buildup or damage. For routine maintenance, wipe down the frame with a damp cloth to remove dirt and dust. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals that could damage the frame’s finish.

Roof Tensioning System

The Easy Roof Tensioning System ensures that your cabana’s fabric top stays taut and elegant. Regularly check the tension of the roof to ensure it remains secure. If adjustments are needed, refer to our manufacturer guidelines or consult with your local SummerSpace independent dealer.

Optional Features

If you’ve opted for additional features like corner curtains, privacy panels, or a Light and Fan Bracket Mounting Kit, ensure that these are also well-maintained. Clean curtains and panels as needed, and check the brackets and mounting kits for stability.

Winterizing Your Open Air Cabana

When summer transitions to fall and eventually to winter, it’s important to take steps to protect your Open Air Cabana, particularly if you live in an area with harsh winter weather conditions. Your cabana cover and curtain panels are able to be disconnected easily, so consider storing them in a dry, covered area during the winter months. This will prevent damage from heavy snowfall or freezing rain.

Regular Inspections

Finally, don’t forget to perform regular inspections of your Open Air Cabana throughout the year. This will allow you to spot any potential issues early and address them promptly, ensuring the longevity of your cabana.

By following these seasonal care tips and maintaining your cabana diligently, you can enjoy its benefits for years to come. With unbeatable UV protection, customizable options, and industry-leading design, your SummerSpace resort-style Open Air Cabana will continue to be the perfect addition to your outdoor oasis.
