Spring Cleaning Your Inflatable Rentals
This entry was posted on April 7, 2016.
When people think about spring they think of melting snow, renewed life, warmer temperatures, fresh air and spring cleaning. As the temperatures get warmer, homeowners enjoy the opportunity to open their windows and clear out the dusty, stale air created by months of winter confinement.
But homeowners aren't the only ones who should be doing spring cleaning. This is the perfect time for inflatable businesses to pull their rentals out of storage and get them ready for the upcoming busy summer season.
Inflatable units that are not used during winter are usually stored away by their owners to protect them. Once the warmer weather comes, it's time to pull the units out and give them a thorough cleaning and examination. It should be inflated fully so that you can go over every part of the structure to look for any holes, leaks, wear, faded or worn out areas and unravelling or splitting of seams that might have gone undetected at the end of the busy season when the rental was put away.
Once the unit is set up, it should be gently washed with a mild, industry approved disinfectant cleaner and water. Cleaning the inflatable gives you an opportunity to look over the entire unit to find any stains, fading, mildew, marks and dirt. Any markings or particles that can be safely removed, should be.
Once the unit has been washed, it should be thoroughly inspected for any damage, tears, leaks or separations. It's important to find this damage on the unit early, when the affected area is small in size. Small leaks and rips are easier to fix and will ensure that the unit has a longer lifespan.
