Spa covers are a valuable part of spa care because they help keep dirt and debris out of your spa. However, they are subject to wear and tear just like anything else. So while they are doing their job, they become susceptible to grit, grime, dirt, mildew and mold.
Clean Your Spa Cover Monthly
Begin by removing your spa cover and thoroughly rinsing it down with cool water from the garden hose. Be sure to remove any grime that has collected on it.
Ultimately, spa covers are an important component of any spa. They protect your investment and children while offering energy savings and the enjoyment of your spa for years to come.
Then carefully clean it with a soft sponge and a gentle biodegradable soap. Never use bleach, abrasives or dish soap on your spa cover. In fact, the manufacturer’s instructions will advise you of the best soap to use.
Rinse it again thoroughly to be sure that all soap residue and dirt have been removed. Then with a clean, dry cloth, wipe off all the water until it is completely dry. If you leave any moisture, it could make it more susceptible to mildew and mold.
Protect your Spa Cover Monthly
