How to Remove Mold from Canvas hot Tents?
What is mold?
It’s a fungus. Unlike plants that need solar energy to grow, molds get energy from degrading organic matter. For a blog about Canvas hot tents, don’t be too scientific: molds secrete enzymes that cause the decomposition of organic materials (aka “decay”), which it eats to produce reproductive energy and waste. Or this is the power of life.
Where does mold come from?
Mold is everywhere in nature. It attaches to clothes, skin, fur, leaves, insects… Mold can grow almost anywhere. Although molds can grow in a variety of environments, they are more vigorous in humid and dark environments because there are a lot of organic substances to eat. Molds spread and reproduce by releasing large numbers of spores, which can easily spread through air or water and settle in new locations. Under appropriate conditions, mold can grow within 24 hours, which is why it is important to deal with it immediately after seeing it.
How to prevent mold?
For leisure campers or luxury campers, just carry out standard cleaning. If your canvas hot tent is wet or wet, please don’t roll it up quickly, which is an opportunity for mold growth. You should keep the canvas hot tent completely dry in the sun, make sure the floor, ropes, poles, stakes, and bags are completely dry, and then roll them up for storage. If you can’t dry everything while camping, roll up the tent loosely for transportation and dry it in your garage or living room home before storage.
If you want to set up a canvas hot tent for a long time or live outside the canvas hot tent, you are great! As an experienced nudist, you know the importance of keeping the camp clean and high-quality equipment. Please follow the following tips to prevent mold from growing first:
- Regularly check the canvas hot tent for mold growth (a good time to do this is when the stay wire is re-tensioned)
- Remove any dead leaves, insects, bird droppings, etc. from the tent
- Reduce vegetation in the surrounding area and keep tall grass and weeds a few feet away from the canvas. Maintain a new form of growth. (this also keeps the windows clean and makes you more comfortable)
- Keep the tent well ventilated. Mesh vents, windows, doors, and even walls on canvas tents can easily maintain ventilation.
- Based on your observation of the impact of the environment on the tent, clean and retract your canvas as needed.
Note: cleaning and evacuating your tent requires removing the tent from time to time. On sunny days, typical cleaning and reprocessing can take hours. If you live in a tent, be prepared to move your belongings out for deep cleaning several times a year.
