WHERE IT ALL STARTED
Sometimes you just have to be brave.
Getting up a 4am everyday and going to bed at midnight was taking its toll and we needed a break, so we decided to take our Narrowboat out for a couple of weeks holiday, it came towards the end of the holiday and we looked at each other and decided we didn’t want to go back to that way of life, so we phoned the area manager and that was it, done, 20 years in restaurants finished.
A few weeks later we put our house out to rent and moved onto the 60 foot boat now called home, it was lovely and relaxing but then three months in I was getting itchy feet, I wanted to do something for ourselves and not a big corporation, so after chatting with friends the idea came up of repairing boat covers, excellent!.
The next day we bought an industrial sewing machine and learnt how to sew, that was it we were off, orders started to trickle in and we were ticking over nicely, the covers seemed to be getting bigger and customers wanted more things like cleaning and reproofing, me being me kept saying yeah of course no problem but we were running out of space.
So we found a suitable unit and installed the sewing machine and. huge workbench and off we went from their, we've gone from repairing covers on the boat to having this wonderful website, a workshop and now a dedicated delivery van!, we are geared up with all the tools and equipment to repair pretty much any leisure cover (and suitcases as I've just discovered!).
we hope you find this website informative, if you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact us.

COVER CLEANING & REPROOFING
We have the experience and skills necessary to tackle just about every type of cleaning job that comes our way. With Cover & Canvas clients know exactly what to expect - professionalism, efficiency and exceptional results.
We clean and reproof all kinds of covers in all shapes and sizes, we use non invasive cleaning products which are specifically designed for removing mould spores and algae from fabrics.
For total convenience we offer a FREE collection and delivery service on all of our cleaning packages within 50 miles of our workshop, for users outside of this area you can either bring to us or send your covers by post.
How do we do it?
Your covers will be fully inspected before we clean them, we will contact you to advise of any repairs that we think require attention,
We then start the cleaning process, we start with a mould and algae remover, this is left on the covers to soak in, we then agitate the solution and gently rub it into the fabric,
Once the solution has worked its magic we gently rinse the covers and allow to air dry, the following day we check your covers for any areas that require a second treatment,
Once your covers are fully dry we start on the reproofing process, we apply 3-4 coats allowing the product to soak in to the fabric between coats.
We then have one final check over your covers and finally pack them up ready for delivery. (Turnaround is generally 5 working days)
So if your thinking of having your covers cleaned then get in touch with us today for a quote.
