How To Clean Mildew Off Canvas Awnings
As we have said earlier, the best thing to wash a canvas awning with is mild soap. However, if your canvas awnings for home are beginning to show signs of mildew, you will need something a bit stronger.
Importantly, you must have a suitable fabric protecting treatment spray. This will ensure your commercial canvas awnings will not be damaged by any stronger solutions.
Do all the steps as usual, but use a small amount of bleach: Around 230 ml (a cup) of bleach per gallon of water with 59 ml of mild soap. Make sure to use a colour safe bleach that does not contain chlorine.
Having Trouble Getting Your Awning Clean?
If you’re struggling to deal with more stubborn stains, or you want to thoroughly clean mold off the canvas awning, it may be a good idea to take it down.
Removing the awning to clean it allows you minimise danger of slips and falls, whilst also giving you the ability to soak it in the cleaning solution. This will help lift tough stains and ensure that the canvas awning is completely free from mold. Following this, you can easily re-apply a coating of fabric protector to extend the length of time for when you need to clean your awning again.
