Tips For Keeping Your Outdoor Awning Looking Great

If you own an outdoor awning, you want to keep it in the best shape possible. After all, it is outdoors and exposed to the elements constantly: from rain to dirt to storms to outdoor animals like birds and squirrels. 

Check out these tips for maintaining your outdoor Tucson awnings and keeping them looking great and in tip-top shape.

Use Commercial Awning Cleaners

When you find that you have a stain on your awning or there is mildew on it, use a commercial cleaner that is created for awning fabrics. Spraying the inside and outside with the cleaner, rolling it, and letting it sit distributes the cleaner over the fabric surface, letting it work its way in. Then open after a while and rinse the fabric with a hose.

Inspect Awnings For Mildew or Stains When First Opening

When you open your awning for the first time after storing it, inspect the fabric to make sure there isn’t any mildew or stains. Awnings do develop mildew so prevent dirt from being embedded in the fabric by rinsing it with a hose. Avoid scrubbing, which can remove the water-resistant finish.

Make Sure There Aren’t Any Tears

It’s always good to check your awning fabric for any signs of wear or tears. If necessary you can find materials to patch or repair the fabric, preventing any further damage.
