As an awning owner you need to decide when it is time to clean and when it is time to recover.
Some of the things that we take into consideration when we talk to customers about cleaning vs recovering:
- Age of the awning. Once an awning is 12 to 15 years old usually the fabric is weakened and starting to show signs of wear.
- Condition of the fabric. Is it just dirty or has it started to weaken or rip?
- Condition of the seams. Is the stitching still intact and strong or has the thread weakened?
