Awning Cleaning & Sealing Examples

At Awning Rejuvanation Systems International we are very proud of our awning cleaning products. Why? Because they work. They are great for awning restoration, restoring faded awnings, or maintenance cleaning. Our awning cleaners clean the first time, whether you are cleaning an awning, canopy, tent, awnings, flag, tarp, or banner you'll be able to get them clean. You can follow up a good awning cleaning with awning sealing. Our sealers don't wash off in the rain and they leave behind a non-stick surface on the fabric material. This makes for easier awning cleaning on your next visit. Think about it this way, you have just cooked yourself some eggs for breakfast. It's now time to wash the skillet. Would you rather clean the cooked on egg residue from a plain cast iron skillet or a Teflon coated skillet.  Yes both skillets get dirty just like your awnings will, but the sealed skillet is by far easier to clean just like your awning will be. Use professional awning cleaning products for the best awning cleaning solution.

Dilution Suggestions:
For extremely dirty awnings use our cleaners full strength or dilute with water 1 to 1.

For awnings cleaned regurlary, dilute 1 part cleaner to 5-8 parts water

For newly installed awnings dilute 1 part cleaner to 20 parts water. 1) Fabric manufacturers have in there warranty "must be cleaned and sealed within 90 days after hung". 2) Creates easier down the road maintenance cleaning.  

NOTE:  Before doing any work on an industrial fabric always spot test your cleaning and sealing products in an out of sight place. This way you know they are safe for the surface you are working on.

Basic Awning Sealing Instructions
Awning sealing is even easier than cleaning:
  1. For vinyl (plastic) materials simply wipe the sealer on clean dry vinyl. Our vinyl sealers will give you about 1000 square feet per gallon of sealer.
  2. Universal Vinyl Sealer 12 is a vinyl sealer that will last up to 12 months.
  3. Ultra Gloss is our heavy duty sealer that puts a shine on any vinyl and can last up to 18 months.

For open weave (cloth) materials:
  1. spray the sealer gently onto the fabric from the top down.
  2. Let it penetrate and dry.

By applying the correct sealer to the industrial fabric you can help protect it from sun damage, pollution, acid rain, and other environmental problems.
Perma-Seal Fabric Sealer #1 is used for breatheable matierials. Fabric Sealer #3 helps glue the leakiest cloths shut. Fabric Weatherizer is a polution protector and sealant.

What NOT To Do:

1. Don't use cleaners that are not rated for industrial fabric use. Janitorial, floor cleaners, bathroom cleaners, and cleaner degreasers are not meant for cleaning industrial fabrics.  They are too HARSH . You want a cleaner that will remove the dirt and grime, not damage the fabric. Cleaners with butyl cellusove (EB, the stuff that gives glass cleaner its' smell) are too harsh or caustic for the material. Using them will cause the materials to lose their essential oils that keep them flexible. They will dry out and become brittle. This will shorten their life span.

2. Don't use water based sealers. The water based silicone formulas never dry. They attract dust from the air like a magnet or wash off in the next rain. The acrylic water based sealers will go white and hazy every time it rains. They also hate to be cleaned with anything other than a pH of 7 cleaner. Otherwise they frost up, and the haze will never go away.
