The dyes used in our manufacturing process are all tested for UV stability. However salty air and long-term exposure to intense direct sunlight can have adverse effects on colour. Air pollution may also cause white areas of your flag to become grey over time.
Your flag should be taken down in winds exceeding 25mph, even if you are using a permanent fixed base and/or a waterweight. Heavy rain, sleet or snow will increase the weight of the flag which will cause unnecessary wear, and possibly rips, especially in high winds.
You should also ensure that your flags are sited so that they are not flapping against any solid objects such as walls or fences in breezy conditions.
Flag Repair and Replacement
Our Flags are so competitively priced that we do not offer a refurbishment service – it wouldn’t be economic for you or us. However, you will usually find that the alterations department of your local dry cleaner will be happy to do small repairs such as mending seams or edgings.
Regular dry-cleaning or 30°C machine washing will keep your flag in perfect condition. After laundering, simply re-fitting your flag to the pole and letting it fly should get rid of any creases, but cool ironing is also possible (a big ironing board will help!).
We also suggest you consider taking advantage of our special multiple-unit offers to purchase spare flags at the time of order. Not only does this reduce your unit cost, it allows you to rotate your flags when the time comes for a regular cleaning.
This keeps your corporate image in pristine view to the public at all times and gives the maximum impact to your advertising message!
