Spring is Here! Now’s the Time to Get Your Awnings Ready to Use in the Warmer Months
May 15, 2020
It’s pretty safe to say that most of us welcome the spring season. We look forward to longer days, warmer weather, and the opportunity to be outside enjoying those milder temperatures with friends and family. Are your awnings ready to do their job? Custom awnings in Boston are subjected to the unique demands of the seasons in New England and taking the time to prepare them for that can extend their good looks and usefulness. Here, we’ll discuss a few things you can do to get your awnings ready for the warmer months ahead.
They Might Need a Good Cleaning
If you retracted or stored your awnings away for the winter, there’s a good chance they’ll need to be cleaned to get them ready for spring and summer. For a light cleaning, you can use a broom or dry mop to gently sweep away dust and dirt. Any debris that may have become embedded can be vacuumed away as well. Many owners of custom awnings in Boston also use a power washer set at its lowest level to get rid of stubborn stains; for older awnings with fabric that may be more fragile, you can gently hand wash them using a mild soap and water mix and a medium to stiff brush, allowing them plenty of time to dry.

Don’t Let Weather Do Damage to Custom Awnings in Boston
Spring in New England is known for its rapidly changing weather patterns, with lots of rain and high winds. Don’t let that wreak havoc on your awnings! Pay attention to forecasts and make sure to either retract your awnings in time to beat the bad weather, or remove them altogether. And remember, too, that springtime is the perfect time to start planning for the installation of new awnings, should you be thinking about them for your home or business.
