Caring for Awnings and Canopies

In addition to keeping your awnings looking sharp and new, keeping your awnings and canopies clean is the number one way to extend their life. You should clean your awnings at least once a year, however commercial awnings in high traffic areas may need to be cleaned more often.

For any type of awning, simply brushing loose dirt from the surface will go a long way toward extending its life and making it last. Once loose bits of dirt have been removed you can do a deeper cleaning by using dishwashing liquid and water along with a soft brush. Sunbrella's care and cleaning page has tips for different kinds of stains and different cleaning options for different types of stains.

If your awning is in need of a deeper cleaning, you may want to consider our Awning Cleaning Service.
