Raleigh NC Awning Cleaning

Raleigh NC Awning CleaningThe awnings you hang outside of your front door are as much a part of your business structure as the building itself.  Awnings have a way of welcoming and guiding a customer to your business. Because of their prominence, awnings are readily seen by all and their condition is a reflection on your business. Dirty or neglected awnings reflect badly on your business and can even make it look like you are no longer in business. Fortunately having your commercial awnings cleaned does not have to be a stressful event. Rather than waiting for your awnings to turn black with grime and stains, a program of regularly scheduled awning cleaning and maintenance will not only make the job easier to do, but also make your awnings last longer.

When Is The Right Time?

Much like you proactively wash your clothing even if it is not stained, you want to have your awnings washed in regular intervals even if they show little or no grime buildup and staining. Why? The fabric in your awnings has a protective waterproofing layer that protects the awning fabric from the harsh elements. This is why water beads up and rolls off of brand new awnings. Over time and exposure to the elements this protective layer erodes away and leaves the fabric susceptible to water, dirt, dust, smog, bird droppings and other contaminants. An easy way to tell if your awnings still have this protective barrier is to spray some water on them. If it rolls right off then you are okay, but if it soaks right in to the fabric then the protective coating on your awnings has completely eroded away. When you have your awnings professionally cleaned and treated the protective coating is restored which allows your awnings to last much longer.

Awnings, be it on a commercial building or a home, can make a huge difference on the property it is attached to. When done right, awnings can take a regular window space and transform it a cozy inviting setting. Besides the fact that they add a touch of style to a home or professionalism to a business they also serve practical purposes. Awning Before ARC PowerwashingAwnings can keep the blistering mid-day sun from shining directly through your window (which in turn, keeps your a/c bill down), they also serve as shelter for customers waiting in the rain to be picked up. Because of the material they are made of and their direct exposure to the elements, awnings can become very dirty very quickly!

From Eye Appeal To Eye Sore

Awning After ARC PowerwashingIf you own awnings then you already know that without the proper care and cleaning your awnings will go from fab to drab in no time.  Being directly exposed to the elements and the weather age your awnings quicker than anything. Awnings can accumulate a type of dirty grime that almost laminates them and without the proper awning cleaning these film deposits are nearly impossible to remove. Regularly pressure washing you awnings is the only efficient answer to removing these deposits and preventing new ones from occurring.

Pressure Washing Your Awnings

Cleaning your own awnings (especially after these deposits have started to take hold) can be a nearly impossible task. The proper tools and attachments need to be determined, as well as the proper detergents. The selection of these is dependent on the material your awnings are made from. Make the wrong selection and you may damage or even destroy your own awnings. For that reason awning cleaning, both residential and commercial, is best left to the pros.

Many commercial buildings, including retail storefronts, restaurant patios, and real estate showcases have the wonderful addition of a vinyl or fabric awning.  Awnings are a wonderful addition to commercial buildings.

The Problem
Awnings weather easily.  Within 6-8 months, a new awning can accumulate blackish streaks from dirt, debris and acid rain.  For southern areas like Wake Forest, pollen also presents a terrible looking problem.  Once these pollutants get embedded into your awning, it may be difficult or impossible to remove.

The Solution
J&L Professional Services has been washing awnings around Raleigh / Triangle area for over 5 years.  We have been seen from Cameron Village to Southgate Mall scrubbing awnings of all types.  Our arduous hand-scrubbing technique and awning specific detergent has been providing quality results around the Triangle.

How To Make It Last
In order to maintain the professional appearance of your awning, as well as protect it’s life-expectancy, we recommend having your commercial awnings cleaned twice a year.  Spring and Fall are great seasons to have your awnings cleaned, right after the seasonal pollen has washed thru.
