Your Westland boat cover is made with high quality, mildew-resistant Sharkskin and Sunbrella fabrics, but mold and mildew are still inevitable in any marine environment. To keep your cover in top shape, we recommend regular cleaning and maintenance. Using a cleaning solution and retreating with water repellent once a year will help you avoid mildew growth and more time-consuming cleanings down the road. If you do find stains or signs of mildew, it’s important to take immediate action so they do not affect the integrity of your boat cover. To tackle them, you’re going to need a tough cleaning solution, which can easily be made from items you likely already have sitting at home. Certain stains may require different solutions, so be sure to check out our guide to make sure you are keeping your cover and boat safe.
