Fabric Cleaning Instructions

Awnings and canopies are generally low maintenance and can be cleaned without first removing the fabric from the frame. It is important to clean these structures regularly before dirt, grime, and other contaminants can accumulate and work their way into the material. It is ideal to wash down at least once a month with a garden hose.

It is best to prevent dirt, leaves, and other debris from gathering on the awnings and canopies. Trimming of trees, shrubbery, and vines is suggested to keep them from growing on the material and causing stains and damage.

In the case of stubborn or extreme dirty issues, awning fabric can be soaked in a solution of Clorox (1/2 cup) and natural soap (1/4 cup) per gallon of warm water for approximately 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with cold water. Be careful not to soak too long, the Clorox can deteriorate fabric and any coatings.

Clean thoroughly and dry completely before storing of awning and canopy fabric.
