External awnings care instructions

External awnings care instructions

Time to dust them off, ready for the hot weather!

Do

  • Always roll up or retract awnings in high winds and storms – the leverage exerted can strain fittings and mountings.
  • Avoid rolling up awnings when wet.
  • Keep your awnings clean. To remove dirt, brush dry fabric with a soft bristle brush and vacuum off any debris. Occasional hosing may remove dust and some ingrained dirt.
  • Remove any mildew as it appears on the fabric. (although the blind factory awning fabric is mildew and rot resistant, it can grow on accumulated dirt). Mildew removers are primarily bleach based and manufacturer’s instructions must be followed.
  • Keep vines and shrubs away from the fabric as they may contain acids that are harmful to the fabric.
  • Always use your awning fully extended and periodically adjust awnings to their fullest extension if they have been in use partly retracted for any length of time.
