Our Maintenance services are designed to extend the life of your awning. Maintenance can be scheduled seasonally, and we encourage our clients take advantage of our maintenance package deals available in the autumn.
Awning maintenance is important to preserving your awning in good condition.
Many people feel it is unnecessary, although most awning manufacturers require regular cleaning maintenance in their warranties.
We hear a lot of excuses:
Unfortunately, a simple rinse, whether by a hose or by rain, can’t remove all the dirt that builds up on your awnings and canopies caused by everyday pollution. Mildew, bird droppings, car exhaust, and the salty ocean air all have detrimental effects on an awning’s fabric and add the need for cleaning. Most of our awnings use Sunbrella and Dickson fabric. These companies recommend cleaning your awning at least once a year.
After buying one of our shade solutions you will probably enjoy it for many years to come. But it can´t hurt to read our disclaimer and ask for our warranty service.
Care and quality are two fundamental guiding principles that we abide by when manufacturing our products. They are the reasons forour products having become so popular.

Many fabric manufacturers have ´stain charts´. With these charts it easy to determine what product to use to clean stains. For example the Sunbrella Stain Chart.
