- How To Keep Your Awning Clean
Things to avoid
- Brush off your awning to remove twigs or leaves that can stain your awning.
- Hose your awning down from time to time or let a gentle rain do the job for you.
- Sweep away all signs of mildew or dirt from the underside with a clean household broom.
- Wash with a mild soap, not a detergent, and immediately rinse away every bubble.
- Keep shrubbery and trees away from the fabric.
- Check occasionally to be sure your awning is laced down firmly and all fastners are tight.
- Be sure to repair small tears and holes promptly so they don't have a chance to grow.
- Store your awning carefully.
- Be sure it is dry and clean before you put it away.
- Brush away any leaves and bits of debris.
- Fold or roll them gently and put them in a cool dry place.
If awning leaks after washing and throughly rinsing apply a silcone water repellent available through 3m or Scotchgaurd.
- Don't allow water, soil or dirt to accumulate on top of your awning.
- Never store your awning on a concrete floor.
Concrete holds moisture and can cause your awning to mildew.
- Never use a harsh cleaning solution or an abrasive on your awning!
- Never put your awning in Hot Water or clean your awning with hot water!
- Never dry clean or steam press your awning.
- Never dry your awning in a clothes dryer. Awning should be lined dried.
- Keep insect sprays, weed killers and other chemicals away from your awnings.
- Never grill under your awning!
