After installing a canvas porch awning on your house, your only thought could possibly be trying to spend as much time beneath it as you possibly can. However, it is going to become dirty after a brief while, and you'll have to clean it to keep it looking beautiful for more.
Your awning will sometimes become a target for animal droppings, collect dust, and eventually become filthy from rain and sun exposure. To maintain your awning looking fresh, you need to wash it regularly.
If you don't clean your awning correctly, it may start to deteriorate until you know it. Before beginning your cleaning take these tips.
Awnings can be washed with just water from your hose. Don't use a high-pressure washer as it is going to be too strong against the canvas and might weaken the material.
Some stains which have had the time to familiarize themselves with your awning may require more than just water to remove. In cases like this, you need to use a detergent. You should only use a mild detergent, as a heavy-duty detergent can easily bleach or discolor your awning. Bear in mind that your canvas awning isn't robust and can be easily ruined. A fantastic detergent to use is the type you use to clean your dishes.
Soft sponges, soft fabrics like chamois and brushes are suitable items to use when cleaning your awning. However, be certain to use a brush with soft bristles, as you with hard bristles can easily scratch your awning or harm its protective coating.
