Stop Yawning at your Awning: The Importance of Professional Awning Cleaning in the Pacific Northwest


Here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, awnings are a common sight, gracing both businesses and homes alike. They provide welcome shade on sunny days and protect from sudden downpours. But just like any exterior surface, awnings can accumulate dirt, grime, and even mold over time. This not only detracts from their curb appeal but can also shorten their lifespan.

That’s where Sound Cleaning Resources comes in! We offer professional awning cleaning services to restore your awnings to their former glory and keep them looking their best.

Our expert technicians employ a two-pronged approach to awning cleaning, ensuring a thorough and safe process:

  • Hand Scrubbing: We start by hand-scrubbing the awning with gentle yet effective cleaning solutions, tackling tough dirt and mildew build-up.
  • Pressure Washing (when appropriate): For stubborn grime and deeply embedded dirt, we utilize pressure washing with a controlled, low-pressure setting to safely remove debris without damaging the awning fabric.

Why Clean Your Awning?

Regular awning cleaning offers a multitude of benefits for both businesses and residences:

  • Enhanced Curb Appeal: A clean awning creates a positive first impression, welcoming customers or guests and reflecting positively on your property.
  • Improved Functionality: Dirty awnings can become less effective at blocking sunlight and rain. Cleaning removes dirt build-up, allowing them to function at their best.
  • Extended Lifespan: By removing dirt and mold, which can weaken the fabric, professional cleaning helps your awning last longer.
  • Increased Energy Efficiency: Clean awnings provide better shade, potentially lowering cooling costs in your home or business.

The frequency of awning cleaning depends on the type of awning you have:

  • Canvas Awnings: These require more frequent cleaning, typically every 6-12 months, due to their susceptibility to mildew growth.
  • Metal Awnings: While generally more resistant to dirt build-up, metal awnings can benefit from cleaning every 1-2 years.
  • Retractable Awnings: Since they retract when not in use, retractable awnings require less frequent cleaning (every 2-3 years) but should still be cleaned regularly to maintain functionality.
