With the arrival of spring, joy, colors, flowers and sunny days return. During this time of year, people leave their homes to enjoy the warmth of the weather and breathe in the fine spring air, however, for some it is much more pleasant to be outside with the protection provided by awnings.
In this sense, awnings offer us the best of both worlds, and represent a real opportunity to enjoy, alone or in company, this beautiful time of year; For this reason, below, we will explain everything you need to know to take care of your awning during the spring season.
Clean and protect your awning canvas
After a long period of winter, the canvas of the awnings must be thoroughly cleaned to give it a renewed appearance. In this sense, we do not need to use products specifically designed to remove dirt embedded in the fabric, simply neutral soapy products and plenty of water.
Check if your awning is in optimal condition
In these cases, it is best to use the services of professional experts in installation, repair and maintenance of awnings, such as Toldos Guardamar, we are experts in the manufacture and care of awnings and only during the month of April we carry out the revision of your awning, valued at €220, totally free.
Clean and lubricate metal parts
Another aspect to take into account for the maintenance of awnings in the spring season is related to the care that we must give to its structure, especially the moving parts.
In this sense, sometimes the different metallic parts can be lubricated, especially when there are noises, but you have to know which parts can be lubricated and which ones cannot, so as not to damage the mobile system of the awning, or stain the canvas. Before doing so, it is essential that we clean the excess dust and remove any trace of dirt. Thick grease should never be used, especially in machines and motors. In addition to this, it is also necessary to check the electrical components of the awning (if any), to ensure that they work correctly.
We insist that it is convenient for this task to be carried out by a specialist awning maintenance company. This will prevent damage and setbacks.
