Selection and cleaning 
All items are removed from their bags and sorted out for one of our three washing techniques, depending on the age, condition and type of material. Laminated or composite sails are laid out on protective sheeting and cleaned using state of the art pressure washers. Woven sails are either flat washed, as with laminated sails, or washed under complete supervision in a large single pocket washing machine. A variety of soap powders are used to care for different fabrics. 
Spot clean 
Whether washed or flat cleaned ALL sails are laid out and carefully inspected prior to hanging up to dry. Any remaining stains receive further treatment with the pressure washers. 
Items are hung in purpose built drying rooms big enough to accommodate up to 180 sails at any one time. Large fans in the roof help to circulate warm air heating, which ensures perfect and complete drying. 
At Hancock Marine Services you can be reassured that your items are in safe hands. Working with a team of well-trained staff who have many years experience between them in cleaning of such items. Even the dirtiest sail, cover or tent are not a problem.
