Awnings are difficult to clean because they can be difficult to reach and you don't want to ruin the material. Simply spray on 30 SECONDS Outdoor Cleaner, wait a bit, then hose off. Years of stains from algae, mold and mildew will rinse away.
We get asked about cleaning outdoor awnings, umbrellas and cushions a lot. We all know they get stained from algae, mold and mildew, and its hard to keep them clean in the damp and humid climates. Here's some helpful advice.
With all the different manufacturers of different materials and different pigmentation processes, its really hard for us to know exactly how your particular fabric will react. You will have to test a small inconspicuous area first. You will see if your material is colorfast within the first 10 minutes, and then decide if you want to proceed. Most fabrics that haven't faded in the sun, should be fine.
The next step is easy. Mix 30 SECONDS Outdoor Cleaner according to the label. Saturate your fabric with the cleaner and rinse it, once it looks clean. Rinsing is key. You will want to ensure you rinse the material very well, and pay special attention to the stitching area. The cleaner can pool in the stitching grooves and could rot if left, over time.
The customer that has the blue awnings, shown above, is absolutely delighted. And the customer that sent this email, below, speaks for itself.
Hello, Just wanted to tell you that 30 Seconds Outdoor Cleaner is probably the best cleaning product I have ever used! It performed completely as promised and totally removed the black mildew stains on the white stripes of my outdoor awning, without discoloring the green stripes. I am so mad I did not take before and after photos.......the results are amazing and I couldn't be happier! I will recommend to all my friends and family!
