We had a request today for a routine cleaning of an awning… only catch is its located inside the mall. We have a few awnings on a route that get done monthly. Lots of water is involved though. Any ideas for a dry clean?
Is it easily removable? You could then clean outside and replace.
Don’t you have a drop-off-your-awning-for-cleaning sign out front of your shop?
Maybe you could steam clean it.
Chemspec makes a product called “Fast Drying Upholstery Shampoo” you could use it with a natural sponge, no rinsing required. However it could by towel dried.
Thanks Lance … we ended up just dry brushing it, and a little spot cleaning.
No problem Chris, Sorry it was late!
Some canvas awnings out there are “sunbrella” And I have cleaned a ton of patio furniture made of the same material. I have also applied “Protector” to this material that claims to slow or stop UV ray damage as well as stain protection. The customers are all over it!
Inside fabric awnings are easy work… I switch out the chemicals and use a steam cleaner with a hand tool… NO HOT WATER. Vinyl awnings require a little more work and the right chemical… A few suppliers have a cream cleaner you rub on like you would buff a car…
