Next, because it’s summer, you want to make sure that the fabric you’re using is UV ray resistant. If it is, great! Make sure the coating is still strong by applying a UV ray spray. But keep in mind, you should consult your awning installer about what kind of spray to use and if you even need it. (Some fabrics are inherently UV ray resistant). If your fabric isn’t UV ray resistant, you might want to consider replacing it.
Also, check the frame of your awning. Make sure that the winter rain and wind didn’t damage it either. Sometimes branches, debris, and other material can damage the frame. If it’s just a loose screw, you can fix it yourself. However, if your frame is bent or damaged severely, call your awning professional right away and have them help you fix it.
Finally, look under your awning and check for any bugs, spiders, and cobwebs. Make sure you’re using the right equipment, like ladders, gloves, and goggles whenever you are working on your awning. (You never know what might crawl out from one of the crevices or cracks).
