You’ve invested in a beautiful awning for your home, now what? First, you should enjoy this great addition to your home. But, often times we forget that awnings are like any other part of your home; you have to take care of it for it to last and stand the test of time. This means you have to clean and care for your awning.
So why should you care about cleaning your awning? For starters, even if you bought an awning with mildew resistance, that’s not enough. Awnings collect dirt and over time that dirt becomes fodder for mildew to grow. Using a combination of quality materials and consistent cleaning, you can avoid the growth of unsightly mildew.
Keep in mind, even if you have top quality fabric with all the bells and whistles like mildew, UV ray, and scratch resistance, cleaning and caring for your investment is a must. It’s like if you buy a new suit, you want to clean and take care of it to ensure the fabric doesn’t get soiled, stained, or even frayed; it’s the same with an awning.
Now that you know why it’s so important to take care of your awning, let’s talk about how you can do this. Here are some tips:
You can always call your local awning shop to help you understand how to clean your awning. You can also have your awning professionally cleaned but this is something you do if your awning is so soiled or dirty that you can’t clean it yourself. So remember, clean your awning at least once a month so you can avoid costly repairs and cleaning services.
