Keeping your aluminum awning clean is an easy way to maintain the aesthetic beauty of your home. All you need is this handy guide to help get you started. Thankfully, cleaning your awning is pretty easy, but there are a few pitfalls that you may run into. So, why don’t you sit back, relax, and learn the best way to tackle your awning cleaning? Let’s do this!

What do you need to clean your aluminum awning?

The first thing you need is an awning, but you probably guessed that. The next thing you will need is a ladder so that you can see the entirety of your awning, especially those hard to see spots. They need TLC too! You will also need water, detergent, and something to scrub with. You can forgo the scrubber for a power washer if you have one, but either one will work just fine.

How do you get started?

Well, what you need to do is set up your ladder and give your awning a good look. Check out the spots that are going to need extra attention and make sure to give them that extra attention. You should also survey your awning for spots that might need repair. It’s not every day that you’re looking at your awning from a bird’s eye view, so you should take full advantage. Once you’ve given it a good look over, you should go ahead and give it a pre-rinse. This will help the detergent do its job more effectively. Try to remove any extra debris that may have fallen onto your awning.

Getting the job done is easy.

The rest is pretty simple. You deploy the detergent onto the aluminum awning and give it a good scrub or power wash. Then, you need to make sure that everything is rinsed effectively. Now, it’s important to note that you may need to pay extra attention to those problem areas you noted earlier. If there are any repairs that need to be made, make plans to get them done. Every few months, you will want to check in with your awning and make sure that it’s still in top shape.
