We're passionate about premium mesh banner products and signage solutions. However, in order for any of your mesh banners to stand the test of time, you need to be aware of how to care for them correctly. That's why we've put together this handy how-to guide on banner care and maintenance. This way, you can be sure that your banners will last for years to come.

1. Use the right product

The first thing you'll need to be aware of when it comes to banner care and maintenance is ensuring that you've purchases the correct product to begin with. For example, if your building site is in a high wind area, you need to be aware of this, and opt for wind mesh - mesh that is specifically designed to withstand the elements.

Using the correct product is half the battle of ensuring that your mesh banner stands the test of time, and continues to look impressive.

2. Store your banner correctly

Banners should always be rolled up for storage as opposed to folded or scrunched up. Folding or scrunching can create lines and creases which are hard to remove and can affect the overall look of your banner when you go to reinstall it.

You also need to be sure that all your signage solutions, including any printed banners, are dry before you pack them away for storage. Leaving banners damp or wet can cause the product to go mouldy, which will possibly render it un-useable next time.

3. Clean your banner

Naturally, over the course of its lifetime, your banner may be exposed to dirt at one time or another. To clean any dirt away, use a damp cloth to gently wipe it down, with no cleaning products. If you find that you do need a little more than elbow grease, use a very mild soap and water combination. By no means should you use chemical based or bleach products as these will damage the print of your banner.
