General care and maintenance for your fabric awning.
# Hose down your awning every month or so. Do it on a warm sunny day to ensure complete drying .
# For a more through cleaning, we recommend using a soft bristle brush and mild soap such as Ivory Flakes or Lux. Rinse and dry completely.
# Keep the underside of the awning clean by brushing with clean household broom.
# Keep all shrubbery and vines away from the awning. Many of these plants contain certain acids which harm the fabric.
# Check your awning’s frame periodically. Rust may stain and deteriorate the fabric. Painting the metal frame is a good way to prevent rust.
# Be sure to have small tears repaired promptly.
# Do not permit leaves, twig, pine needles, etc to remain on awning.
# Do not drag over abrasive surfaces.
# Do not spray insect repellent over the fabric. Some solutions will cause staining.
# Do not permit water to stand or pocket on the awning. It can cause stretching.
# Do not wash your awning with strong or harsh solutions, abrasive cleaners or bleach.
