Your awning is not only an ideal source of shade in the summer; it also gives your home an extra-special look guaranteed to impress passersby. But if your awning is left untended, the curb appeal it provides can quickly disappear. All sorts of things can accumulate on top of your custom awning, including twigs, mold, moss, dirt, leaves, and other debris. In order to keep your awning looking like new, Carroll Awning Company has some tips on how to best go about cleaning your awning.
Cleaning your awning is not a difficult process, but you do have to be careful so as not to damage or deteriorate the canvas. Using a ladder to access the top of the awning, first sweep off any large, loose debris with a broom. Once the majority of that is removed, you can move on to a more thorough cleaning of the canvas itself. Mix together a mild dish soap or cleaning liquid in a spray bottle with water. You can use this to spray the surface of the awning with the soap mixture and then scrub each section with a soft-bristle brush. It is important not to use any harsh cleaners, abrasives, or bleach on your custom awning, as they could both cause discoloration in the awning’s surface and damage the quality of the canvas. Washing your awning outdoors will allow it to dry out faster, lessening the chances of mold or mildew developing on the damp canvas.
A clean awning can mean major curb appeal points, so if your custom awning needs a little extra attention, make sure to follow Carroll Awning’s tips. If you clean your awning between 3 and 6 times a year, you could extend its life and enjoy its benefits for seasons to come.
