Spring Awning Cleaning

28 Mar2016

Awnings are an incredibly beneficial addition to any commercial property. They increase curb appeal, attract customers, drive business, and in some cases provide much needed shelter from the elements. How did your commercial awning hold up against the DC metro area’s harsh winter? Is it covered with dirt, debris, or bird droppings? There are a few simple steps you can take to give your awning a necessary spring cleaning. However, if you want your awning to look its absolute best this season – hiring professional help is the way to go. Let us elaborate.

Rinsing Your Awning

You should establish a routine rinsing schedule for your awning to remove dirt, dust, and debris. If you are rinsing your awning without professional help, you can gently use a garden hose and ladder to access and rinse the problem areas. If there are trees nearby your awning, it has likely accumulated even more pesky debris than usual (sap, leaves, etc) and will require more careful attention.

Cleaning Your Awning

Rinsing your awning alone is not enough to get it back into pristine condition. If you want your awning to look brand new again, you should scrub it clean using soap and water. Keep in mind that metal awnings require different cleaning methods than fabric awnings. With metal awnings, you can scrub debris away more aggressively. With fabric awnings, you should scrub gently using a mild solution and be careful not to cause any damage that may puncture the awning. If you have hard to remove stains on your awning, hire a professional to safely remove them.

Protecting Your Awning

You should protect your awning year-round. Once your awning is clean and ready for springtime, you should ensure that it is prepared for the harsh sunlight in the coming months. Harsh sunlight can dull the appearance of your awning. The best way to protect your vinyl awning from the sun is to have it professionally cleaned and resealed.
