Why Clean?

No matter why your awnings were installed
(signage, shade, aesthetics), you want them
to look good. The first impression your awnings
make is part of the first impression your building
or storefront makes on customers and clients.

Things even as subtle as the appearance or
basic overall maintenance of your business
can have great influence on a consumer's final
decision as to where they will, or will not, shop
. Any hint of exterior shabbiness or neglect can easily result in lost sales. Likewise, a well-kept exterior with attractive, clean awnings can make all the difference to a buyer's psyche, because "clean" is more inviting than "dirty" every time.


It Extends The Life Of Your Awnings...
Regular cleaning and sealing will significantly extend the life of your awning material, while keeping the awnings looking great the entire time. Cleaning removes the pollution, dirt, bird droppings, mildew and other contaminants that cause the material to weaken and age prematurely. Also, regular application of a sealer with UV protectants helps protect the awnings against breaking down from sun damage.

Manufacturer's Warranty Cleaning Requirements Are Met...
In order to be upheld, most awning manufacturer warranties require some proof of cleaning. Manufacturers know quite well that awning materials deteriorate faster if they are not maintained, and often write their warranties accordingly. Keeping a record of maintenance serves as proof that failure (if any) of an awning's fabric was due to fabric defects rather than any lack of maintenance. Our gentle hand-clean process is the recommended method and all our cleaners are manufacturer-approved.

A Regular Maintenance Program Is More Effective Than Infrequent, Haphazard Cleanings...
Just as you wouldn't drive your car for a year without changing the oil, you shouldn't leave your awnings neglected and uncleaned for a year's time. Preventative maintenance is vital for the protection of your awnings. If you wait until your awning looks really bad, you may have waited too long.

Staining occurs when the usual list of suspects (pollution, dirt, bird droppings, mildew and other contaminants) are allowed to remain on the surface of an awning for an extended period of time.
