Awning care

Walmart sells awning care product in the camping section. After you wash it let is dry real good. Then use a sponge mop to apply a product like son of a gun or Armor all . Apply to both sides of awning. Also found at Walmart. Kinda like dirt going on a wax floor. A breeze to wipe the awning off. Probably can get away with application every two years.

What material is the awning made of?
Vinyl coated or a woven fabric?
Any tag indicating Sunbrella?

Be aware that Wet and Forget is a good product but it does not work immediately. It takes weeks for visual results. Iíve used the faithful 50/50 bleach and water mix. Apply, wait a few minutes, scrub with a brush and rinse thoroughly. In the case of an awning I would try 25% bleach mix first. I would be a bit more gentle but more time and scrubbing may be required. Thoroughly rinsing is important. After it is try I would apply 303 protectant. Be sure to read the label for proper use. In the case of 303 more is not better

Careful... 303 Protectant is for rubber and vinyl
303 Fabric Guard is a water repellant for fabrics.
Sunbrella (a common acrylic boat top material) recommends using 303.
If you get over spray FG on vinyl (like clear vinyl boat windows) it removes the plasticizers and makes it brittle (over time... not immediately)
If you get Protectant on a Sunbrella (like) fabric it removes the water repellancy.
Above us why I asked what type material... it makes a BIG difference.
303 makes great products but you need to buy the right one and use it properly.
Advise to use it sparingly is correct...
Several light spray application better than one heavy soaking coat
Also best applied on a hot day in full sun and leave spray out to warm (vs storing in shade / basement and using it cool).
Sunbrella website has a good cleaning & retreating guide online. It is OK actually recommended to use weak bleach & mild soap (Woolite or Ivory, not detergent) to clean. Brushing and rolling the awning up helps let it work w/o drying. Rinse well 2-3 X and let dry before retreating.

It is a great product. Use it on our home up north that has asphalt shingles. Took about 6-9 months to remove all of the moss and lichen(sp?). That was three years ago. Still looks spotless. I plan on spraying the ridge caps this spring as maintenance. Once clean it is not necessary to spray the entire surface. By spraying the top real well normal rail carries it down.
