Maintaining Your Flag and Flagpole
Often a flag is used to promote a business and is the first thing that a customer sees, so it is vital to make sure that your flag and flagpole are in top condition and have routine maintenance. Having regular maintenance can prevent the need for flagpole repair service later and also save you money. A rope is much easier to repair before it breaks for example.
Things that you should look for when inspecting your flagpole:
- Halyard – the rate of halyard wear depends on several factors including flag size, wind conditions, weather, and usage. For this reason, we recommend that you inspect the halyards on a monthly basis. You should look for fraying, tearing or other visible damage.
- Winch – Remove debris on winch and cable to avoid buildup.
- Poles – Remove stains and debris.
- Flag – Look for tears, frays, stains and weather damage.
