Awnings are one of the best sun protection systems, as long as they are of the quality offered, like the ones we offer in Toldos Guardamar.
If we expect them to last a long time, we must perform periodic maintenance. This way, in addition of providing them with a correct mechanical operation, we will also be taking care of their aesthetics, something that many people set their sights on.
The awnings for restaurants are widely used, being exposed to continuous wear and inclement weather. That’s the main reason of the importance in its maintenance, trying to take care of all its parts.
One of the most important elements of a sun protection system is the mechanics, with its mobile parts. The metal pieces of this structure are usually metal and must be cleaned with a specific product that does not damage this material and can not produce rust, something that would directly affect its operation.
In this case, the best option is that the awnings could be disassembled to clean in depth all the pieces that are part of this type of structure.
The same happens with balcony awnings or garden sun protection systems, although in these cases, sometimes the structure is not metal but wood. In spite of this, it is necessary to clean the wood well and dry it to avoid being affected by humidity, although the material of these awnings is usually treated to withstand the adverse weather conditions.
For that, we want to give you an advice: when it rains and you have not had time to pick up the awning, it is better to let it dry when the storm is over. If it is rolled up, it can accumulate moisture and create mold.
