Cleaning, Mending & Storing Flags

How to Care of Your FlagFlag Service - Cleaning, Mending & Storing

Flag Service or maintenance will help extend the life of your flag. From the chaos of a heated battlefield to the various daily flag ceremonies of a scout troop camping high in the mountains, flags have proved to be strong and resilient in all kinds of situations, but not indestructible.

Preventing damage to your flag is not always possible, but by following some simple care-taking tips, you can extend the life of your flag.


Mending the FlagFlag Washing and Repair Flag Service - Cleaning Flags

Dust, smoke, and other harmful pollutants can cause your flag to wear and age quickly. If possible, choose to fly your flag in a clean environment. When your flag becomes dirty, wash it in warm water with a mild detergent, making sure to rinse it thoroughly—leaving no residue behind that can cause discoloration. Do not store your flag until it is completely dry.

Flag Service - Mending Flags

Trimming off frayed threads is an easy way to make your flag last longer and look better. If excessive fraying occurs, using a sewing machine to re-hem a flag is a perfectly acceptable way of maintaining your flag. Flags with excessive wear and tear should be properly disposed of. 

Flag Service - Storing Flags

Storing your flag properly is not only respectful, but can add life to your flag. It is important that you store your flag in a dry and dust-free environment. Also, avoid storing your flag in a garage or a basement next to chemicals that could damage your flag. Storing your flag in a proper case will protect your flag and also give you an attractive way to display it.
