AS summer comes to a close and your visitors go home, your awning is likely to see less action.
Don’t just roll your awning up for the season, give it a clean now to prolong its lifespan with RTN’s step-by-step guide:
Step one – Use a long handled broom to brush off any debris from the top of the awning – dead leaves, twigs, moss and any other debris. This will make it easier to wash later.
Step two – Fill a spray bottle with some warm soapy water and spray over the top of the awning fabric. Scrub with a soft bristle brush to clean off any marks or dirt. Be careful not to scratch the fabric, particularly if it has a waterproofed coating.
Step three – Rinse off the awning with a hose until all the dirt and soap has gone.
Step four – Leave the awning extended, to allow the material to dry out naturally in the air.
Step five – Use a feather duster to sweep out the underside of the awning, getting rid of any dust and cobwebs.
