The Benefits of Professional Awning Cleaning

As a Pacific Northwest resident, you know just how much rainfall and moisture can accumulate throughout the year. Due to this precipitation your outdoor awnings can quickly become covered in moss, algae, pine needles, leaves, and dirt. A dirty awning not only detracts from the appearance of your home or business, but can also lead to staining, damage, and premature wear and tear. This is why professional awning cleaning is essential to keeping your awnings looking their best and extending their lifespans. Sound Cleaning Resources recently performed an awning cleaning for an apartment complex in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle and the results are substantial. Below is why you should consider using Sound Cleaning Resources to care for your awning.

When it comes to awning cleaning, there are several different methods that can be used. The most common method is utilizing a variable power pressure washer. This is the most efficient way to remove stuck on dirt, debris, moss, and mold. It is also vitally important to take into consideration the material of the awning and the amount of dirt and debris that needs to be removed. For example, a canvas awning is much more delicate than an awning made with vinyl material and should be treated with the appropriate cleaning solution and pressure washing technique.

In addition to pressure washing, other methods of awning cleaning include scrubbing and brushing with soft bristle brushes. These methods are more labor intensive and can take longer than pressure washing, but can be effective for removing mildew, mold, and other stubborn stains. It is important to note that when scrubbing or brushing an awning, care should be taken to avoid damaging the material of the awning. No matter which method of awning cleaning is used, remember that awnings should be thoroughly rinsed and dried after cleaning to ensure they are completely free of dirt, debris, and cleaning solution. Finally, awnings should be treated with a protective coating or moss inhibitor to help prevent future damage, wear, and moss or algae buildup.
