- Inspect: Check your awning for any rips, tears, or frame damage like rust and bending. Check the crevices for any mold or mildew growth. Also, look at the awning to see if the fabric is sinking and losing its tensile strength. Make sure the color is also not fading. If any of these things are happening, contact your awning installer and have the issues repaired right away.
- Clean: Using mild soap and a soft bristle brush or soft towel, wipe your awning down and remove any debris or other unsightly build up of gunk from the winter.
- Protect: You can spray on extra coatings of UV ray, sun, and water protection. (Although, always check with your awning installer to see if this is okay with your particular awning and what spray you can use). The extra layer of protection can help reduce color fading, UV ray penetration, and water damage. (Think of that morning dew).
- Replace the Fabric if Necessary: If the fabric is looking faded, droopy, or is torn, replace it. Remember, you don’t have to always replace the frame. Replacing the fabric is cost effective and allows you to update the look and feel of your home or business.
