Awning Maintenance

Cleaning Your Awning

Brush off surface dirt.
Hose down the fabric.
Prepare soap mixture in a clean bucket.
Dunk a clean, soft bristle brush into the mixture.
Use sweeping motions to clean the awning.
Allow soap to soak in and capture dirt.
Rinse thoroughly to remove all residues.
Note: Fabrics must be air dried only. Pressing, steaming or machine drying will shrink awning fabric.
