Spring is just around the corner and that means that many people and park owners will prepare their chalets for a new season.
However, you may not find your chalet as you left it.
Due to less sunlight, your chalet may have turned green on the outside. Never clean your exterior cladding with a high-pressure cleaner.
Cleaning is best done by using a soft car brush/sponge with water and green soap or a mild car shampoo with wax. Plastic exterior cladding can also be cleaned very well, for example, with 123 Flash products, which are available from good caravan shops.
Minor (paint) damage is best taken care of as soon as possible.
You should also remember to periodically check and clean the gutters. A full gutter can cause water damage in the chalet.
You should also check your window frames every now and then ARCABO chalets are equipped with wooden or plastic frames, which are virtually maintenance free except for the latches, hinges and window rubbers. By periodically spraying your hinges and locks with WD40 or Teflon, the handling will remain smooth.

It is alsi important to check the sealant every year and will have to be replaced on average every two years.
Also a geyser or a central heating system require annual maintenance. We advise you to sign a contract with a local installer for annual maintenance.
