The awning fabric maintenance will typically consist of a thorough cleansing once per year and a light monthly refresh. If your awning is in an area that is prone to stains and dirt, additional maintenance may be necessary to help prolong the lifespan of your awning fabric. While both retractable awnings and fixed awnings will require some maintenance, retractable awnings present the added possibility of mechanical maintenance. Retractable awnings have moving parts, so occasional repairs are likely.
