We often get asked, how do I clean and care for our new awning?

Sunbrella fabrics are easy to clean and maintain.

Follow our tips and tricks and get years of enjoyment and use from your Phoenix Canopy & Shades awning.

Sunbrella is a high quality fabric that is commonly used for outdoor awnings because it is durable,

resistant to water and sunlight, and easy to clean. Here are the steps to clean and maintain your

Sunbrella awnings.

  1. Remove loose dirt: Use a soft -bristled brush to gently remove any loose dirt or debris from the awnings.

  2. Prepare cleaning solution: In a bucket, mix 1/4 cup of mild soap, such as woolite, with 1 gallon of warm water. You can also use a specialized Sunbrella cleaner if desired.

  3. Apply the solution: Using a soft bristled brush, apply the cleaning solution to the awning, working in sections.

  4. Scrub: Gently scrub the fabric in a circular motion, paying particular attention to any stains or areas with heavy dirt buildup.

  5. Rinse: Using a garden hose, thoroughly rinse the awning to remove all soap residue.

  6. Air dry: Allow the awning to air dry completely before retracting or folding it back up. Do not put the awning away until it is completely dry, as this can lead to mildew growth.

In addition to regular cleaning, it is important to maintain your Sunbrella awning by periodically treating it with a water repellant spray. This will help to maintain its water resistance and prolong its lifespan. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for best results.

It is also recommended to clean your Sunbrella awning at least once per year, or more frequently if it is exposed to heavy rainfall, high winds, or other harsh conditions.
