Canopy’s At shopping center


#1

Hey just wondering what you guys do about the bleach and business canopy’s?? Only have done one commercial job… has you c in the picture it has a green top and the owner wants all the stucco clean which means I need to go strong with my mix… any suggestions would be nice


#2

Rinse afterwards. They should be bleach resistance


#3

I’d pre wet them too. I get that if they are sun resistant they should be SH resistant but pre wetting seems like cheap insurance


#4

Since it’s attached to the building is should be part of your bid. Housewash and a rince will clean ones that aren’t to bad . Roof mix and low pressure wash cleans ones that are bad


#5

I can’t belive that the roof mix won’t fade it or discolor it… that’s stuff seems to ruin more clothes that I owne … well if I get the bid I will make sure I keep it wet …


#6

Sunbrella meterial will only fade if it’s weathered or sun damaged. It pretty hardy stuff.

@florida_condo_cleani is 100% correct.

You can spray SH on outdoor canapoies…that’s how most clean them.

Not sure what there isn’t to believe.


#8

They will tear and they are not cheap to repair/replace.

20 years ago I worked with a guy that did a LOT of vinyl and canvas awnings using a waterfed pole and brush. Can’t remember the exact chemical used but pretty sure it smelled of bleach.

I usually test an inconspicuous area with a strong mix in a cup just to make sure. I haven’t run across an awning that I couldn’t use SH on. They might be out there. Wet it first if it’s in the sun…you should be fine.
