Relaxing hours in the cool shade of your awning are simply wonderful. Especially if your sun shading system also looks dazzling. So that it stays that way, you should also clean your awning. Because sun, wind and weather continuously put strain on your shading system. The cold season is a perfect time for careful awning maintenance after continuous use in the summer. Cleaning your awning regularly allows for more gentle cleaning. And it prevents stubborn dirt that is hard to remove when cleaning your awning. The result is a spotless, well-maintained and valuable sun shading system that gives you long-lasting joy.

Our tips will make cleaning your awning a piece of cake: First use a soft brush to gently remove any dirt that has accumulated on the dry sun shading system. You can remove coarse dirt by wetting the awning fabric. You can then rinse off partially loosened dirt with a stream of water from the garden hose. Smaller streaks of dirt can also be removed with a rubber eraser. The best way to remove stains is with a mild cleaning solution and soft sponge. Then rinse off the cleaning agent thoroughly from the awning to retain the impregnation. Now let your awning dry thoroughly before retracting it to prevent algae and mould from growing.

Let yourself be inspired for your new awning by the colours of nature and design your open space just how you like it. In the WAREMA sample shop, you can choose up to 10 large fabric samples and have them delivered to your home for free.
