Awning question

I just did my first black and white awning today.

Pretty nasty, picture doesn’t show how bad it was. I did the usual bleach/scrub/bleach/rinse procedure and frankly I’m disappointed.

The dead mildew turned brown as usual but made the white stripes a light tan color. I talked with the customer and she said it’s a vast improvement and go ahead with the rest but I’m not happy. Sorry the pics are reversed, dirty one is on the bottom.

What more can I do? Will the sun eventually bleach it out?

I think it looks very good. Sometimes we can not fix what a homeowner has neglected for years.

Idk Brock it looks perfect in your picture. :grin::+1:
We’ve done quite a few awnings 4.5% bleach and rinse and repeat as needed lol thats all we can do.
Customers have always been happy

Looks like you need a little stronger mix. What % did you use? Doesn’t look to bad in pic though.

I’ll try and get a better ‘after’ pic today, need to go back for the window cleaning.

I’m with everyone else on this one…I’d consider that for a solid before/after promo pic for awnings if the angles were better :joy:

Here’s a better close up shot if you can see the grey spots on the white part.

Looks pretty good to me….I wouldn’t worry about it.

I’m doing about 20 awnings right now and I bought Winsol deep clean for them. It helps to clean them and protect them afterwards. (With a hot sh mix) I feel that it’s an upgrade over regular surfactant. But I’ve found that my 1000 psi tip (65-20) is what’s needed to really get them clean. You have to be careful though because the material needs to be in good condition otherwise it may tear.

I’ve cleaned a couple with SH, but a couple local guys I know have used this with great results.
