If you catch mold in the early stages you can save your tent. We strongly suggest you to look for Mold Mildew Stain Remover which can be found online. Follow the instructions on the label. We have found it to be safe, easy, and effective to use. However, keep in mind that this treatment will degrade some of the canvas water repellency. The affected area can be retreated with a silicone based water repellent solution as it wouldn’t clog the tiny pores in the canvas and cause it to lose its breathability.
Replace the tent if it is the black mold and canvas tent fabric is falling apart as there is not much you can do at that point.
Never store or pack your tent and ropes away wet, damp or dirty. If you own a canvas cotton tent, make sure to never store it either wet or damp. The moisture trapped inside will make the life of tent shorter. At times, you don’t have much of a choice but to pack it; in damp condition, make sure you hang it up to dry within a day or two. Otherwise, fungus can affect the tent leading to tiny little black spots all over your tent which are permanent.
Pitch your tent properly:
Simple yet effective way to ensure enhancing your tent’s life span. The canvas can become strained If the tent isn’t pitched correctly which would eventually lead towards damage.
Keep it clean:
To remove marks, use a soft brush or sponge with fresh water and mild detergent only and rinse with clean water. Allow to dry thoroughly. Wipe down all metal surfaces with fresh water after use. After beach use or wet conditions treat all zips and metal components with silicon spray. Remove the stains as soon as they appear, its way easier to brush off the dirt and dried mud when the tent is dry by using a scrubbing brush.
Cotton canvas fabric normally expands when exposed to wet environment to make itself waterproof. There might be a possibility that it may leak a bit around seams when you set it up for the first time. The cotton fibers will swell and close up any tiny holes that might cause the leakage again. Don’t freak out, it’s totally okay as this will no longer happen again because of the natural cotton phenomenon.
Make absolutely sure you store your tent in a place which has ventilation to let some air through. Due to insufficient ventilation, fungus can affect the canvas. It is important to store your tent dry so no fungus or other stains can appear.
There are few precautions you should take if you plan to use your tent for an extended period of time (3-4 weeks or more) to enhance the tent life.
If you own a canvas cotton tent, make sure to never store the tent, ropes and stakes either wet or damp. The moisture trapped inside will make the life of tent shorter. At times, you don’t have much of a choice but to pack it; in damp condition, make sure you hang it up to dry within a day or two. Otherwise, fungus can affect the tent leading to tiny little black spots all over your tent which are permanent. This occurs when the canvas at the bottom of the tent is in constant contact with moist ground. The canvas never dries out and eventually will begin to rot or decay in the areas of contact. Even if there is no rain, this can be caused by moisture from dew.
For extend use, make sure the tent is placed in an area that is well drained, dry and properly ventilated to let some air through. Due to insufficient ventilation, fungus can affect the canvas. It is important to store your tent dry so no fungus or other stains can appear. It could be placed on sand, gravel, or a slated wooden platform. Extended use on grassy areas or moist soil should be avoided.
Camping tents can easily become a victim of mold and mildew. If your tent is not cleaned, dry and stored properly when you put it away, mold and mildew can be a pesky problem. Mildew is more prone to grow in humid climates in dark or shady areas.
Take the tent out for cleaning and retreating from time to time. A typical cleaning and retreatment can require a few hours on a sunny day, a few times a year. Let it air out and place it where it can receive direct sunlight for a couple of hours.
Our canvas tents are much less susceptible to UV deterioration than many synthetic fabrics but over time it will eventually degrade the canvas. Ultraviolet damage to tent fabric is caused by excessive exposure to sunlight. The first sign of sun damage will be a fading of the color of the fabric, followed by a deterioration of the fabric and threads, often near the seams but sometimes in the middle of the panel.
Avoid leaving your tent set up in direct sun for extended periods. Also, we recommend to use a “rain fly” as it also protects the tent top from burn holes, slides the snow, and is another barrier in the rain.
Four Season Tent: Canvas tents generally perform better in winter conditions. Heavy duty canvas fabric will block out the cold and wind better than nylon. They are also very functional during the summer– it is a 4 season tent for all your camping needs.
Durability: If you buy the right canvas tent, you can go years before you need to replace it. Small holes and ripped seams in a canvas tent are also easier to patch up than holes and damaged seams in synthetic material tents.
