Tips on Care of Awning & Canopy Fabrics
Keep the awning clean.
Hose down the awning regularly and allow to dry completely.
Even on mildew resistant fabrics mildew can grow on accumulated dirt or foreign materials and eventually penetrate or damage the fabric.
Keep the awning underside clean by brushing with a clean household broom.
Keep all shrubs and vines clear of awnings, as many bushes contain acids harmful to fabrics.
Repair any small rips or tears promptly.
Check the awning frames frequently for rusting, which can stain or deteriorate fabrics.
Truck Tarp Care
Secure tie down is required for the best cover performance. Wind whipping will damage any fabric.
Choose the right cover for the job, it is difficult to get good tie down and prevent billowing when the cover doesn't fit.
Tarp materials resist tearing, give them the chance to do their job by padding sharp edges on your load.
Install and remove covers carefully.
Keep covers as clean and dry as possible.
Inspect your load covers frequently and repair minor tears and pinholes before they become more serious.
With only the minimum amount of attention your awnings and tarps will remain serviceable for years. If you have any questions, comments or would like to schedule a free estimate, please contact us at 817-478-1800. For your convenience you can use the request form on this website.
