Awning Ideas / February 12, 2019 / Candy Calderon
Awnings don t require poles (which would clutter the view) since they are attached with spring-loaded mounts. The "retractable" type of awnings differ from basic immobile awnings in that they last longer (can be rolled up in damaging weather) and allow a space to be used in a variety of ways--both drinks in the shade and stargazing for example. On the large end of the spectrum awnings today can be upwards of 30 feet in width and around 14 feet in depth. They are controlled automatically via weather sensors or a remote control button or by hand using a manual crank. Either way these awnings can be unfurled or retracted in less than a minute. What are the practical implications of this? When you want to cool an area down like a concrete poolside or overheated deck shade is just seconds away.
Once the internal brainstorming is complete it s time to send in the reserves: the services of a top-notch signage company that can deliver the message in an effective and yet subtle manner. Innovative outdoor signs and awnings are essentially an extension of your traditional marketing and branding campaign. Think about it this way: a recent survey by the University of Cincinnati reveals that next to television customers find traditional signs and awnings the most affective means of advertising and that half of American shoppers would like to see larger signs - especially when driving. What s more two-thirds of respondents ages 18-24 said they had even driven past a store whose sign or awning they failed to read or worse yet find.
So you need to ensure that all traces of the detergent are taken off the awning fabric. It is also important to check the awning thoroughly and ensure that the soap is removed completely. After rinsing the awning you also have to look for signs of dirt. If you identify any dirt the area needs to be scrubbed again. Cleaning Metal Awnings: Many users find it easier to clean the metal awnings in comparison to the fabric awnings. You can use a quality emulsifying detergent to clean the metal awning properly. However the detergent needs to be applied using a pressure washer. Most of the dirt and grime will be removed from the awning by the high-speed spray. After using the pressure washer allow it a few minutes to set. Use the pressure washer again with plain water to rinse the awning thoroughly.
