Are you planning to install awnings to your home for Fall? If yes, it’s important that your awnings look their best. Fall is a time where we are still actively entertaining outdoors. The last thing you want your lounging party guests to notice is bad upkeep of your residential awnings.


You can ensure your awnings are looking at their best by learning how to properly clean them. As the seasons change, debris, bird droppings, and mildew can accumulate on your awning coverings and deteriorate the look and feel of your awnings. It can get to a point where your residential awnings no longer enhance your curb appeal.


What do you need for awning cleans?


You need gentle dish soap, warm water, a bucket, a spray bottle, a sturdy ladder and a soft bristle brush for scrubbing your awnings.


For large awnings, Carroll Awning Company recommends using taking the awning fabric off the frame to give it a good cleaning.


Before washing the awnings, remove any visible cobwebs and dust from the fabrics. Awning coverings should be cleaned every 2 to 5 months to expand the life of your residential awnings.


Sticking to this awning ritual cleaning will also prevent long-term damage to your awnings. Carroll Awning Company recommends that awning cleaning be performed on dry, sunny days for the best results.
