When the warm weather is truly over for the season, it’s time to think about winterizing your retractable awning. By taking a few simple steps, your awning will be in good shape and ready for use when the nice weather returns in spring. Here’s what to do.
Give Your Awning Fabric a Good Cleaning
After several months of daily or near-daily use, the fabric of your awning has likely collected dust, grime, leaves and even bird waste. Thorough cleaning lifts away most of the dirt. Don’t overlook this opportunity to get rid of any stains on the fabric, too. If this isn’t a job you can comfortably do yourself, your local awning dealer typically offers cleaning services.

It’s easy to let bad weather sneak up on you; before you know it, heavy rains, harsh winds, snow and even hail will move into the area. Instead of waiting until it’s here, start keeping that awning closed up now to avoid unexpected damage to the covering and hardware.
Book a Professional Inspection
An awning technician assesses your awning covering and the hardware to ensure everything is working well. One of the things your technician will look for is any place where moisture or debris can get inside the mechanical hardware. Keeping water, debris or even pests out is key to winterizing your awning.
