Your new Sunesta Retractable Awning is truly a wonderful addition to your home which offers plenty of benefits. One of those benefits is easy care and maintenance. Let’s look at what you need to do to clean your new awning and keep it looking good for many years to come.
The Material Makes All the Difference
Sunesta awnings include acrylic fibers woven into the fabric itself. These fibers help prevent the growth of mold and mildew. This makes routine cleaning and maintenance extreme easy.
Traditional canvas awnings don’t have the protection of the acrylic fibers. This allows mold and mildew to easily take hold, which means you will need to do a thorough cleaning with harsh chemicals to remove it.
This involves removing the awning fabric and scrubbing it down with a special solution made to kill and clean off mold and mildew. It can take multiple applications to remove it all.
Then, you will need to reinstall the fabric. Plan on redoing the cleaning process at least once a season to keep it looking decent.
Cleaning a Sunesta Retractable Awning
You will find cleaning a Sunesta retractable awning is much easier than a canvas one.
For a light dusting of dirt or debris, a quick spray from a garden hose will clear the fabric and make it look new again.
On occasion, you may find the dirt is a bit heavier and may be embedded in the fabric fibers. In that case, you may need to lightly scrub the fabric using a long-handled brush. Always use the least pressure possible when scrubbing and immediately rinse to remove the loosened dirt.
Routine Care Makes a Difference
Cleaning your awning every few weeks will make a big difference in its appearance as well as its longevity. A well-maintained awning can last for many years, looking as good as it did the day it was installed.
