Regular maintenance of your canvas and mesh products will help extend their life.


Wash off lose dirt and bird droppings with water and a soft-bristle brush.  Use a mild detergent if necessary.  Be careful not to get oily lubricants on the canvas zippers, as this will attract dirt and clog them up.  After cleaning, and once every five years or so, you should treat the canvas with a UV protectant.  Sunbrella® recommends

Here are some cleaning guides from Sunbrella®

Cleaning Awnings


Prepare a solution of 1Tbsp household dish  detergent, 2Tbsp bleach, and 1 gallon of water.  Clean the mesh using this solution and a sponge or soft cloth.  Rinse mesh with clean water and allow it to air dry.

Avoid letting the mesh come in contact with oil-based products.  If this happens, be sure to clean it following the guidelines above.
