Top Tips: Caring for your Canvas Camping Tent
To get the best value from your canvas tent it is important that you care for it correctly. To begin with, you need to season your canvas when it's new and also after long periods when it has been stored. Pitch your tent and hose it down with water. The water shrinks the canvas around the thread of the stitch lines and allows the cotton in the canvas to swell. You need to repeat this process a couple of times.
If you have missed a small spot or a seam, you can temporarily fix this by applying wax from a clear wax candle. Rub the candle on the exterior of the stitch line and/or the spot. The wax acts as a waterproof barrier quickly sealing that spot or seam. No need to get wet, but you do have to remember to take a candle with you. Keep it in your kit bag.
A reason why people purchase canvas tents over their polyester cousins is durability, warmth, weight and strength. Caring for the canvas in your tent will prolong its lifetime.
OZtrail tents use waterproof and water repellent fabrics. However, with the addition of seams, zips and other desirable features a recreational tent will not be as waterproof as a car, house or other solid structures.
The following are common examples of how water can enter a tent:
Condensation - When warm moist air meets cooler air, condensation occurs. The tent/shelter fly forms an impermeable layer between the inside and outside conditions. The moisture inside the tent/shelter condenses on the fabric. Sometimes in cold conditions it appears that the fabric is leaking when in fact the cause is condensation. Condensation can be reduced if the tent/shelter is well ventilated.
Zips - All care is taken in the design to cover zips with rain flaps. At times wind driven rain could force water under the rain flaps and through the zips. To minimise this, make sure all doors and windows are closed with the rain flaps covering the zips.
Floor - If the ground is very wet or water pools under the floor, downward pressure of standing or kneeling on the floor could force water through the floor fabric. To prevent this, do not pitch the tent over hollows and make sure water drains away from the tent.
Structural Integrity - A perfectly pitched tent on perfectly flat ground is structurally strong and most waterproof. During prolonged periods of rain and wind it may be necessary to tighten guy lines and reset the tent pegs and attend to drainage around the tent. Sagging and incorrect pitching weakens the tent structure and could allow water to pool on the fly placing undue forces on the tent causing leaking and breakages.
