Marquee linings – keeping them clean

Realistically in the marquee hire industry there are some things you can get away with and some things you can’t. For example, if you haven’t had chance to clean a dirty marquee roof you can generally get away with it if you hide it with a lining. What you can’t get away with is a dirty lining, this is the bit that transforms the marquee and needs to be clean.

These are the common causes for a dirty lining:

Dirty hands putting them up: You’ve just knocked in dirty stakes or lots of rusty nails before you have to put the lining up. Solution: Have disposable gloves or a pack of baby wipes in the car.

Dirt dripping down from the roof: Condensation forms in marquees, especially in ones without flooring or ones with breathable flooring (regular readers will know my hatred of that..). If the poles are dirty then that dirt will drip down on to your lovely linings. Solution: Keep muddy groundbars as groundbars and keep the cleanest poles for the roof sections.

Dirt from the ground: Linings can pick up dirt when they’re taken down and dropped on the ground or if there’s no flooring dirt can splash up on to curtain linings. Solution: Gather the linings in to a protective bag as they’re being taken down, avoid letting them drape on the floor if at all possible.

Dirt from transport: leaving linings lying around un-bagged means they can get dirty or damaged in transit. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of completing a really nice marquee only to look up and see a size 10 footprint in the middle of a roof lining.. Solution: Store marquee linings in protective bags whenever possible.
