How do awnings get dirty?
Dirt, pollen, and mold spores regularly fly through the air outside, getting stuck on high surfaces such as awnings. Although rain will typically wash away most dirt and debris, some can get stuck in the canvas weaving and create an opportunity for mold, mildew, and even algae!
Why can't I just use soap and water to clean my awning?
Awnings can be difficult to clean not only due to their position on your home or business, but also due to the specific needs and treatment of the material used. Laundry soaps and detergents are generally not recommended to clean vinyl or thick canvas material. Some do use dish soap and a hose to rinse off grime, but if you have plants underneath or around the awning, the soapy runoff would also not be the best for their health! It's much simpler to leave the cleaning to the professionals with the necessary tools and resources to take care of it.
