To enjoy the luxury of your Eclipse retractable awnings for many years to come, give them a monthly once-over by doing the following:

o Don’t let freestanding water hang around. To protect again mildew and eventually rot, hose off the awning and make sure it is debris and stain free.
o Hose off the tops of your awnings with mild soap and clear water.
o Take a regular broom and gently brush the underside of the awning.
o Take a good look at the frame to make sure it is rust free to prevent deterioration and staining of fabric.
