Simple maintenance is the key to keeping your awnings clean and looking great for many years. We recommend cleaning your awning three to five times per year. Most minor stains or light mold/mildew can be removed using a mild, non-detergent cleaner such as Dawn dish soap. For specific stains like tree sap or rust - Carbona Stain Devils are excellent and can be found at JoAnne Fabrics, Hancock Fabrics, Ace Hardware.
Using a standard garden hose sprayer, spray the underside of the awning first. This helps to break loose any dirt settled on the top.
Next, spray the outside of the awning from top to bottom. Most dirt and debris should wash off easily.
To remove stains, bird droppings, etc. use a soft bristle brush and Dawn or Carbona Stain Devil products for specific types of stains.
Rinse thoroughly and let air dry.

We also sell a fabric safe mildew cleaner for more stubborn stains. This often requires re-treatment of the water repellent coating on the fabric so we recommend using Carbona products first.
