Here are some tips that you can follow to ensure the safety of your custom garden flag.
Safety from sunlight
Irrespective of the theme of flags you choose, you should remember that overexposure to sunlight can make them look faded and damaged in no time. These flags are essential outdoor décor items; therefore, you cannot avoid them from being exposed to sunlight. So how do you ensure that the fabric of your flag remains fresh for a long time even time, even though it is under the sun for long hours? You can make use of some UV fabric protector sprays on your flag so that damage due to sunlight is reduced considerably. This spray prevents dust from accumulating on your flag’s material. Hence you can keep your flags fresh and bright for a long time.
Be aware of climatic changes
Garden flags are not very sturdy. Their flag posts are also quite slender. So, they get easily damaged in harsh climates. Whenever you expect a windy day, it is better to remove your flags, fold them nicely and put them away in a cool & dry place. This way, you can avoid flags from getting torn due to the force of the winds. Keep your flags lowered during times of heavy rain and winds if you want to increase their life.
If you want your garden flags to last for a long time, you should install them in grounds that have been soaked with enough quantity of water. There shouldn’t be any sharp objects like trees, buildings, lamp posts or any other relevant item along the path or nearby the flags. This way, you can be sure that your flags will not get torn easily.
Garden flags are placed outdoor always. Hence, they are exposed to a lot of dust, even if you apply fabric protector sprays on them. You should clean your flags with a mild detergent twice a month at least so that the fabric remains fresh and pollution-free. Allow the fabric to dry nicely before folding them and storing them in a dry place until you take them out to replace the next set of flags.
