As summer winds down, it’s important to take care of your patio awning as part of your outdoor upkeep. Using these simple care tips from a professional retractable awning contractor will help you get years of shade with ease.
Use Gentle Soap & Water
Use warm soapy water, a bristle brush and a light hand to loosen dirt and grime. Use plenty of clean water to rinse away soapy suds. Avoid making your own bleach or vinegar mixtures with water to use on awnings, as they can damage the fabric treatments and break your warranty. Call experts for safe mold and mildew removal if needed
Brush Off Hardware
The end of the season is a great time to inspect the hardware on your awning. Brush away any leaves, pine needles or other debris. Use a soft cloth dampened with water to wipe away grime. Examine hardware for broken or rusted areas that need repair or replacement.
Inspect Your Awning Fabric
Once your awning is clean, it’s worth taking the time to examine it closely for small holes or tears. Getting these repaired while still small is the best way to ensure the longevity of your awning fabric season after season.
