I have rust and oil stains in my hood, maindrop or lazy bag. Can these be removed?

In general, we can remove this stubborn contamination very well. If the object contains so many rust or oil stains, it is possible that minimal traces will still be visible because the fabric itself has already been affected.

How do mold and weather stains arise and can they be removed?

Weather or spoch is a permanent material deterioration of textiles. Weather stains in clothing or pieces of fabric such as ship's sail are caused by having been damp for a long time. Weather is visible as dark spots (dots) that cannot be washed out. This is also called spoch. The damage to boat covers, for example, is caused by fungi that thrive in a moist environment and live on organic particles. Stashed textiles can contaminate uninfected textiles. If left untreated, it will lead to permanent damage and holes in the material. If the object is affected by mold or weather stains, we can easily remove this. When the object is subsequently recoated, the mold is less likely to adhere to the surface. However, there is no guarantee that mold will not return.

If you want to try to quickly remove recurring weather stains yourself, you could do the following. Fill a plant sprayer with nine parts water and one part chlorine bleach. You can then spray this over the weather spots and let it sit for fifteen minutes. Consider the floor and benches. Keep plenty of water on hand to immediately clean any other items. After the soaking time, you should rinse it with plenty of water. It is better not to use a hard brush or other soap and cleaning products. This gives you the chance to damage the applied or existing coating, which will only make the problem worse.

Cover, main drop and lazy bag maintained for a neat boat appearance

Regular maintenance of your hood, maindrop or lazy bag is not only crucial for the protection and functioning of your sails, but it also contributes to the attractive calling card of your boat. These parts contribute to the overall appearance of your vessel. It is therefore essential that they look neat and tidy. At ZONklare we understand this like no other. We offer comprehensive maintenance services for your hood, lazy bag or maindrop, so they look like new again.

Our thorough cleaning method

Our process begins by carefully hosing down the object under reduced pressure to remove all dirt. We then let it soak for ten to fifteen hours in a basin specially developed by us. This guarantees the removal of even the most stubborn dirt. After soaking, the loosened dirt is removed in our spray booth. The object is then hung up to dry and a final check can take place.

Finally, we perform a full inspection, and if necessary, we can make repairs. At ZONklare we always strive for the best possible results, and we are committed to keeping your canvas work in excellent condition.
