But if you can take adequate care, they will last much longer than you can imagine and will help you use them in many future events.

Placing the flags at apt locations
An appropriate place provides the feather flags with the exposure they require to attract attention. While choosing a location, keep in mind if they will be exposed to dust or UV radiation from the sun. These factors reduce the flags’ endurance capacity, causing them to wear out far quicker than anticipated. If possible, place them in a shady, less polluted area.
The climatic conditions determine the longevity of the flags to a great extent. Feather flags, in general, can be used for a maximum of two years and a minimum of six months. However, it is also dependent on the steps taken to maintain them. If you choose a less polluted environment or put them in a shaded location, they will require minimal maintenance. But you will need to make arrangements for their proper care at regular intervals if you plan to keep them hoisted for a long period or if you think they will be exposed to the harsh sun rays or dusty environment for a considerable time.
Taking necessary measures to protect the flags from extreme weather conditions
These flags can get damaged by heavy rain or strong winds. Rain adds to their weight, putting more strain on the poles than they can handle. If you plan ahead of time to take them down during such extreme weather, you can avoid such harm. Before you decide to put the flags back up, make sure they are thoroughly dry. Otherwise, mold may grow on them. You can wash the flags (if needed) before reusing them.
Leaving space in between
Flags need some room to flutter. So, it would be wise to keep the required space in the adjacent area while installing them. Make sure to check whether they will get stuck on a fence or brush up against a tree. Flags can get tears as a result of such events.
Following the correct installation process
Feather flags are easy to put together and can be done without any assistance. However, make sure you do a good job while assembling them. The lifespan of these flags is mostly determined by how they are mounted. You only have to follow the correct installation process described in the manual.
These tips will aid you in getting the most out of your investment. You will be able to use them to promote your business at many events if you can maintain them well.
