Remember, while cleaning your awning is a year-round task, it’s especially important to remember in the winter. You might be thinking, the rain will clean my shade structure, why should worry about it? But that’s just it, the water, cold, and debris that comes with inclement weather is exactly why you should worry about your awning.
- Debris will gather on your awning. Wind will blow leaves, twigs, and other random bits of nature onto the surface of your shade structure.
- Pools of water will gather on the top of your awning. This is bad because if left to stand, the water can encourage mold and mildew to grow or worse yet, become a breeding ground for mosquitos.
- Possible tears or damage to the fabric or frame of the structure. Remember, wind can blow debris that can potentially rip or tear the textile of the awning. Even small rocks or pebbles can get blown around and damage the frame.
