PROTECTING YOUR BOAT BY KEEPING IT CLEAN

Cleaning BoatStoring your boat keeps it safe from the elements, which goes a long way to protecting your investment. But if you don’t keep it clean, all the protection in the world won’t matter. When you store your boat at Big Item Storage, you not only get an enclosed spot to store your boat, but also you have access to a washing station that makes cleaning easy.

You’ll want to rinse off your boat first from top to bottom to loosen any dirt. Using a cleanser meant for boats is the next step, working up a good lather to knock off any stuck-on debris. Make sure you take it one section at a time, though, rinsing as you go. You don’t want the soap to dry and leaves streaks and potential damage behind.

A good buffing of the exterior helps improve a lackluster finish and gets the boat ready for you to apply protective wax that is designed for boats. The wax will restore shine while providing protection from the elements. Doing so will allow you to go longer between cleanings as well. Treat your boat like a car when you wax, focusing on a small section to apply it and then buff it off.

After you have the outside taken care of, select an all-purpose cleaner that is safe for your boat’s interior. It’s also a great idea to use special protectant to shield from UV rays and a fabric spray to repel moisture and mold.
