General Cleaning Instructions

Awning fabrics should be cleaned regularly before dirt, bird droppings, etc., are allowed to accumulate and become embedded into the fabric.

The fabric can be cleaned without removing it from the frame by brushing off any loose soil and hosing off with water. If there are areas that do not come clean with this method, add mild soap to lukewarm water and lightly clean the fabric with a sponge or soft cloth.

Rinse thoroughly to remove soap and let dry before retracting the awning. Do not use bleach or detergents and never dry the fabric using heat or steam press.


Storing the Unit

Although it's not required, if you choose to remove the unit from the wall for winter storage, place the unit in a dry, well-ventilated area and away from rodents. Never store your awning in a plastic bag because trapped moisture can promote mildew.

The frame is made of non-corrosive materials. We recommend that you occasionally hose off the framework and spray silicone on the arm cables and moving parts after the unit is dry.

Avoid spraying the silicone on the fabric since this may cause discoloration. The framework may also be waxed using a non-abrasive polish if desired.



Motors are self-contained and require little or no maintenance. If your motor goes out of adjustment or fails to function properly, contact your authorized Durasol representative.
