At Custom Flag Company we want to help you beyond just creating your personal flag. We want to make sure that you know how to care for it throughout the seasons as well. Caring for a custom flag in the fall is important to ensure its longevity and continued vibrancy. Here are some tips to help you take care of your flag during the upcoming autumn months.
If you are going to store your flag for the Winter before doing so, give it a thorough cleaning. To do so, wash it in cold water with mild detergent and hang it to dry.
When not in use, fold your flag neatly and store it in a cool, dry place. Avoid leaving it exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods, as UV rays can cause fading.
If you would like to keep the flag up during the winter, consider rotating your custom flag. When you buy in bulk, you can save money on your flags, and replace the flag flying when it starts to fray. When the fraying begins, you can send us your flag, we will clean & mend the flag to prolong the life of the flag.
Protect from Inclement Weather
Remove the flag during severe weather conditions, such as heavy rain, snow, or strong winds, to prevent damage. This will prolong the life of your flag, and keep your flagpole from having any issues long-term.
Check for Damage
Periodically inspect your flag for signs of damage, such as tears, fraying, or loose stitching. Address any issues promptly to prevent further deterioration. And again, contact our team if you need help mending your flag as well.
Replace as Needed
Over time, flags can become faded or worn due to exposure to the elements. If your custom flag starts to lose its vibrancy or becomes damaged beyond repair, consider replacing it to maintain a sharp appearance.
By following these tips, you can help ensure that your custom flag remains in good condition during the fall and throughout the year. Proper care will not only extend its lifespan but also allow it to continue to proudly represent your message or identity.
