No outdoor living can be enjoyable unless you have a pleasant looking contemporary canvas umbrella to rest under. Patio canvas umbrellas come in various designs, styles and colors to blend with your outdoor furniture. Whether over a table, patio, or poolside, the presence of a canvas umbrella will enable your family members as well as your guests to spend some quality time together.

The basic function of an outdoor canvas umbrella is to provide shade from the harsh summer sun. A large selection of outdoor canvas umbrellas is available ranging from inexpensive and entirely functional to higher priced exotic ones designed to create a tropical paradise look. The canvas umbrellas also come in different sizes and shapes.

The question most often asked is – what is the life expectancy of an outdoor canvas umbrella. The lifespan of a canvas umbrella depends on how well you maintain it. You should regularly clean the canvas umbrella and securely store it away during months when you will not need it. This way, you can be sure the canvas umbrella will last for many years.

Please also bear in mind the manner of opening and closing your outdoor canvas umbrella as suggested by the supplier. Be vigilant at all times and immediately remove your umbrella if there are strong gales or storm is brewing.

Canvas umbrellas are indeed durable but they will gather dirt and grime as they are exposed to the elements. So it is your responsibility to clean the umbrella at periodic intervals. If only you take some pains, your canvas umbrella will look as good as new at all times.

If you are not already aware how to clean an outdoor canvas umbrella, you can follow the steps outlined below.
• Disentangle the canvas from the frame. There should be no difficulty as the canvas on the outdoor canvas umbrellas is detachable.
• Get hold of empty, clean wide-mouthed garbage can and fill it with water or OxiClean. If the canvas color is white you can add bleach and if the canvas is colored, you can add any color-safe bleach.
• Soak the canvas umbrella cover in the mixture and allow it to remain there for one or two hours.
• Shove the canvas cover thereafter into the washing machine. A canvas umbrella cover will be able to easily withstand the cycling pressure of a washing machine cycle. Add your regular detergent and bleach or OxiClean. The canvas will emerge in perfect new-look condition.
• Next, you will have to clean the umbrella frame. The best way to do this is to hose off the umbrella frame with a pressure water hose. You can use glass cleaner to get rid of any dirt or grime. If the dirt or stain persists, you can use bathroom cleaner that contains bleach. Wear gloves while handling bleaching powder.
• Restore the canvas to its original fitting on the frame. If your canvas umbrella cover is still wet, place it along with the frame in the stand and leave it to air-dry.

If your canvas umbrellas look neat and bright, your guests will love to call on you more often to spend time under the umbrella. Your family members will also be too happy to spend time sitting under the umbrella. Canvas umbrellas should be cleaned and dried completely before they are securely stored away for winter months.
