  • Fabric Awnings: How to Keep Them Looking Great

    Washin' The Car

    For many Southern California residents, the effects of the sun on outdoor furniture, design features, and textiles can be discouraging. If you’re concerned about your fabric awnings losing their beauty due to sun bleaching or other processes brought on by our climate, there are a number of simple steps that you can take to protect them. Here are three ways to help keep your fabric awnings looking brand-new.

    Buy the Right Cleaning Products  In order to preserve the color of your residential or commercial awnings, make sure that you only wash them using a mild detergent. When using bleach, be sure that all of it is thoroughly removed after the cleaning process , as it can discolor the fabric. When it comes time to re-treat the Sunbrella fabric, discuss the best options with your Moran Canvas representative.

    Use Deep Cleaning Strategies  If you notice any stains on your awnings, mix together a solution of bleach, detergent, and water and allow it to soak into the fabric for about 15 minutes. During this time, you can go over the material with a soft brush to remove any excess debris. Once it comes time to remove the mixture from the awning fabric, use a high-powered water source like a hose to efficiently eliminate any leftover solution. Let the awnings air-dry before checking the stains.

    Do Regular Maintenance  In between deep cleanings, you can keep your awnings looking their best by brushing off any dirt or nearby tree debris using a broom. Once you’ve brushed them clean, rinse the awnings off with your garden hose or a bucket of cold-to-lukewarm water. Sunbrella fabrics will dry quickly outdoors, so you should never remove them to dry in the home or in a dryer.

    Patios Whether you are looking to enhance your residential or commercial property, a sun shade sail gives just the right amount of sun protection and decorative appeal. You might include one on your patio to make the area more user-friendly. With a shade sail, it is easier to throw barbecues at your home, set up outdoor tables at your restaurant, and just enjoy being outside. These structures also add a unique aesthetic appeal that is sure to liven up any property. A shade sail makes the perfect addition to any exterior design.

    Playgrounds Make it safer for your children to play outside by adding a shade sail to the playground. These shaded areas will help prevent sunburns and overexposure to harmful UV rays.

    Decks Extend the life of your deck by adding a shade sail that will protect it from the elements. When your deck is properly covered, it will receive less wear and tear and require less maintenance.
