Why is Awning Cleaning Necessary?
cleaning is among the most beneficial ways to keep costly
awnings looking beautiful for many years. Whether awnings
are used to screen the building from the elements, enhance
the architectural theme of the building, or act as signage,
awnings should be kept clean.
the esthetic aspect of awning cleaning, keeping an awning
clean helps to sustain the useful life of the awning.
Professional awning cleaning removes harmful bird droppings,
airborne dirt and contaminants, mold, and mildew.
Professional awning cleaning won't remove paint, rust, or
other permanent stains.
Depending chiefly on the design
and construction, awning cleaning can be done with the
fabric in-place or removed. It's important to note that
regardless of the type of inner liner, the inside of the
awning must also be cleaned. Interior awning cleaning over
parking spaces sometimes requires strong detergents to
loosen the oily dirt and grime.
How is Awning Cleaning Done?
Typically, awning cleaning is done
with a pressure washer. Pressure is set to the lowest needed
for the awning cleaning job, reducing the possibility of
damage to the awning. The water used in awning cleaning must
always be clean. Awning cleaning using green detergents is
usually performed low to high. The operator will start at
the lowest point of the awning and work their way to the
highest. Rinsing is always done in the opposite manner,
How Often Should Awning Cleaning be Done?
Awnings should be cleaned every 30
to 60 days to keep dirt and grime from being deeply embedded
in the fabric, which requires far more aggressive awning
cleaning to remove. Thorough awning cleaning should be done
every 12 to 24 months.
Awning Cleaning Misconception.
Misconception: Professional awning cleaning weakens the
fabric and shortens the life of the awning.
Truth: Cotton and synthetic
stitching break down from exposure to UV rays, sometimes in
as little as 5 years. While awning cleaning is rarely the
cause of loose stitching, awning cleaning may show that
stitch rotting is present thus leading to the misconception
that awning cleaning shortens awning life.
