While Business Is Quiet, It’s A Good Opportunity to Check the Condition of Your Rope and Netting
As a result of the coronavirus, all around the world many businesses are finding things much slower than usual.
Indeed, we hope your business hasn’t been too badly affected by the slowdown.
It’s undeniably a tough time, but as more breakthroughs are made in the fight against the virus itself and more measures are taken to help support businesses, we hope everyone is able to come out stronger on the other side.
In the meantime, while you might have some extra downtime, it’s a good opportunity to take stock of different things in your business.
And if you use nets a lot in your work, it’s a good idea to take this chance to clean them.
If you decide to do this, there are two key things to remember:
- Only use bleach for nets with particularly hard to shift dirt, otherwise soap will do – when it comes to cleaning most nets, a simple soapy water mix will usually do the trick. Soak them for a while and rub down as much as you’re able. For harder wearing nets that are particularly dirty, adding a little bleach to the soapy water mix will help loosen the tougher dirt and provide a deeper clean.
- Make sure you thoroughly dry your nets before you use them again – the most important thing you can do when it comes to looking after any net is to make sure you dry it thoroughly after any long periods of contact with water. Extend the net to its full size and let the sun and wind do their work. If you are stowing nets away – say a football net, or a fishing net perhaps – make sure they are completely dry before you do.
Of course, no matter how often you clean your nets, at some point they will wear out. Even the best quality nets will eventually be pushed a step too far.
So, if you do feel your netting is a little too worn and might not be fit for purpose, it might be time to replace them.
As we can craft nets to almost any size or specification, that’s not a problem. We can effectively just make an exact replacement.
