convertible top cleaning

The convertible top can be made of either canvas or vinyl (so-called artificial leather). All types of roofing, regardless of their age, must be cleaned and maintained with care. Roof cleaning is a stage in which only mild detergents should be used, as the detergent is absorbed into the textile surface of the roof and is quite difficult to wash out.

Depending on the age of the car and the degree of soiling, the material to be treated should be allowed to absorb for up to one hour. Then, using a soft (!) nylon brush, all the parts of the roof must be thoroughly cleaned. When cleaning, brush long layers of fabric!

After cleaning the surfaces, the convertible roof must be treated with a special impregnating agent to prevent the material from moulding and to provide a protective coating. The soft-tops of new cars also need to be treated at least every six months, regardless of mileage, as the water-repellent effect disappears after a certain period of time.

For information! Stained and faded roofs can be refreshed with special paints !


Impregnation of a textile roof prolongs its lifetime and maintains its original appearance. An impregnated convertible roof prevents the penetration of pollutants and makes it easier to remove dirt with normal washing.

Only a few commercially available products effectively protect against various types of dirt such as: dirt and bird droppings or UV radiation. The impregnated material does not allow dirt to be absorbed, making it easier to wash the convertible top by normal washing. In addition, thanks to UV protection components, the roof is reliably protected from the harmful effects of the sun.

It is important to make sure that the product used for impregnation does not contain solvents that can damage the rubber layer under the fabric on newer roofs! As mentioned above, impregnation should be carried out after thorough cleaning. It is recommended to carry out this procedure at least 1-2 times a year and its frequency will depend on the conditions and intensity of use of the car.

If your car is no longer new and the convertible top is already faded, it can be refreshed with a special painting procedure.

Attention! Do not attempt to clean difficult-to-remove stains yourself unless you are confident in the effectiveness of the tools you are using. Otherwise you may make it more difficult to remove such stains in the future!


Roof renewal and recolouring is ideal for improving the appearance of faded convertible roofs.

If your convertible roof has become sun stained and ugly, this unattractiveness can be easily remedied with roof painting. Water-based black, dark blue and brown paints are available to restore the convertible roof to its original appearance.

The convertible roof needs to be thoroughly cleaned of any dirt before painting the roof rails. Otherwise the roof will remain stained. If the roof has been recently treated with an impregnating agent, the roof must not be painted as the painted surface will not remain even.

The colouring of the roof of a convertible canopy is a service that can be carried out at any time, but it should be borne in mind that the cleaning, washing and painting of the roof can take several days and that the impregnation can only be started after the fabric has completely dried. Stained roofs can be repainted as well as roofs that have become stained by bird droppings or chemical substances.

Painting the roof of a convertible is more suited to refreshing the old paintwork rather than replacing it.

It is recommended that the roof is cleaned at least every three to six months, depending on use and environmental conditions. Regular cleaning will help prevent damage to the fabric from dirt, bird droppings and other contaminants.

The use of a pressure washer is not recommended as high pressure can damage the fabric and destroy the waterproof properties of the roof. We recommend gentle hand washing with a soft brush or sponge.

A convertible roof that has been standing for a long time and has gone mouldy needs to be washed with special cleaning products. The roof should then be painted. Doing so is likely to restore the roof to its original shine. Sometimes it is not possible to remove the mould completely, so small patches of mould will remain visible under the paint.

Most of the time, it is not possible to successfully repair permanent injuries. In some cases it is possible to patch holes. Scratches can be made less visible by painting.
