Before you buy a yurt you need to consider what term the yurt will be used and prepare for treatments accordingly. There can be 3 sceneries:
1. For only summer use, apply the appropriate waterproof treatments on the rain cover & the outer layer.
If the yurt is used all year round, use the same method as the scenario-1 additionally, use Polytex Pro material which should be added on top of the insulation.
If you live in the yurt all year round all the same treatments should require plus more regular heating, opening and closing door, windows and lifting up & down the bottom (skirt) of the yurt.
PREVENTING FROM MOULD & DAMP
Heat and ventilation are the best methods for protecting soft material.
Regular ventilation protects condensation and opening door and window stimulates clean air come through and dries interior
When yurt is unoccupied yurt's temperature should not be dropped below than 15C.
Use ''Enzymas'' for canvas cleaning. It is 100% biodegradable which is safe for plant and animals and cleans atmospheric
pollution, algae & grease.
Dirt Or Soiling
Dirt or soiling can cause staining of the canvas.
Regular inspection and cleaning should be applied to maintain the appearance and integrity of the fabric.
For a lacquered yurt use DD coating (2 component, UV- resistant)
For a yurt without paint & lacquer use boiled linseed oil twice a year
Use a damp cloth for cleaning any wooden frames and keep the yurt heated to dry it off. The woodwork can be lightly
sanded and re-oiled with Danish oil.
The door should be inspected and treated every so often.
Yurt Fabric Treatments
For the rain cover (army canvas), we recommend using Ultramar cotton & canvas protector.
For poly-canvas (not top layer), use Ultramar spray hood & tent protector.
For poly-canvas (top layer) & other synthetic fabrics, use Ultramar parasol & marquis protector UV resistant.
Also, ''Fabsil Universal'' and ''Fabsil Gold'' products can protect the canvas.
Use an extra layer of ''Poytex Pro'' of ''Pro Clima Solitex Plus'' if yurt will be up for more than 3 months or in rainy & cold
Storing A Yurt
Store in a dry place
Do not store the trellis sections flat – lean them against a wall.
Store the roof poles under tension to prevent the steam-bent sections from straightening out.
Wheels to be stored flat.
Collection of tips
Woodwork with gray soot spots can be cleaned with HG stove glass cleaner.
Algae stains on the outer layer can be cleaned with home made (natural) cleaning liquid which you can make it by mixing 1 litre of natural vinegar with 5 litre of water. Coat the algae stains quite well (let them soak in), use clean brush if necessary, after 2-3 days, the stains will disappear.
From our experience, it is best to prevent moths in the felt rather than fighting them. Use a pheromone trap which attracts moths to a male but the prevention method should not be used during the summer when the weather gets hot (The yurt's door and windows are tend to be left open during the hot season which attract the moths in. As moths do not like Cedar Scent, use cedar scent products such as moth deterrent freshener, or essential oil.
Use a ventilator in the yurt combined with a wood-burner in the cold and wet season to spread the heat well evenly in the yurt. In the winter the humidity sometimes drops well below 35%.
