Does your business need awning fabric? If yes, it is important to know how to maintenance your awning fabric prior to its installment. We at Carroll Awning Company are here to help you install and keep your awning fabric in mint condition. Read this article to learn how to protect your awning investment.


Awing can be a powerful first impression. It can be used for signage, aesthetics or shade for a workplace, company or home. To keep your awning attractive it needs to remain as clean as possible.


By practicing simple maintenance you can enhance your awnings appeal, protect it from damage and increase its life span. The greatest threats to your awning are environmental effects. Stains can develop on your awning from pollution, dirt, bird droppings, and mildew. These contaminants will weaken and make your awning material prematurely age.


Stains should be removed as soon as they are visible. Keep plant shrubbery and vines as far as possible from your awnings. Plants contain acid that can be very harmful to your awning material. Be careful with the use of paint on your building too. Paint splatters on the fabric of your awning can make it very challenging to remove dirt and mildew from the fabric.


Here are some ways to maintenance your awnings:


– Wash down your awning to protect it from mildew. Mildew can grow on dirt and other materials that damage and stain the fabric.

-For vinyl coated awnings, use a cloth or soft brush with mild soap to clean and rinse thoroughly your awnings.

– Hose your awning with clean water at least once a month.

– Use a clean household broom to clean the underside of your awnings.
