How to Keep Your Awning in Top Condition

You get to admire a beautiful new awning as soon as your sign installers are finished, but keeping it in shape comes with maintenance. Clear off twigs and debris, inspect your awnings for punctures, and call your sign company if you notice any damage. Read ahead and learn exactly how to keep your awning in top condition.

Clean Off Debris

As you may have seen with your roof or fence, it doesn’t take long for debris to build up. It can be tough to remove once it does, and it may leave stains behind even after you’ve gotten rid of the buildup. Make sure you get rid of wet leaves, twigs, and bird droppings whenever you notice them starting to collect on your awning. Wet leaves and bird droppings can even lead to mold problems if they’re not dealt with quickly. It’s also a good idea to give your awning a spot clean occasionally, using warm water and a mild detergent.

Check for Problems

In addition to leaves and bird droppings, awnings are exposed to the elements on a constant basis. Even especially durable awnings can take some damage after a bad storm, so check on yours regularly and look for signs of a problem. Mold growth can tarnish the awning’s appeal as well as present health hazards, but there are other issues to look for as well. Check the metal components for rust, and make sure there are no tears in the fabric.

Act Quickly

If you do come across a problem when you’re inspecting your awning, call your sign company right away. A small puncture could turn into a large tear in no time, so you’ll want to repair it as soon as possible, and you’ll want the job to be done properly.
