Always check now and then for any stains or outdoor residue on any part of the umbrella.Try to wash it regular with warm water and soap. The hardest colors to maintain are the white, red and clear umbrella. UV rays can destroy the surface of the umbrella so try to place your or store your umbrella next to a window or in the back of your car. So think twice where you put your umbrella stand. A common problem is people placing there umbrella stand ( with there umbrellas in) next to a heater. Rapid drying of the umbrella will harm the material than drying it normally. The best way to dry is to place head down in a stand to dry naturally. This stops the material winkling. The stand will also stop people stepping on or tripping over and breaking your umbrella.
