How Much Does Cleaning an Awning Cost?

 
 average costAverage: 4x10-Foot, $20-$40 
post E-mail post Post  

Awnings require regular cleaning and maintenance to remain attractive and serviceable over time. Professional awning cleaners usually come to their customers' homes or businesses to clean awnings. Most awning cleaning services are locally owned and operated small businesses.

Typical costs:

  • Awning cleaning services cost approximately $0.50-$1 per square foot, depending on the location of the cleaning service (cost of living variance), number of awnings to be cleaned, and distance between the cleaner's facility and the awnings to be cleaned. So one 4-foot wide, 10-foot long, flat, sideless awning will cost $20-$40 to clean.
  • Awning cleaners provide estimates for cleaning jobs before performing services. These estimates are based on the size and complexity of the cleaning job, whether special equipment will be required, and travel time. Estimates are usually free and can be given over the phone or by e-mail.

What should be included:
  • Most professional awning cleanings include: brushing the top of the awning, washing the top of the awning with water and gentle soap, thorough rinsing of the awning, rinsing of the sidewalk or patio below the awning and brushing of the underside of the awning.
Additional costs:
  • Thorough cleaning of the underside of an awning is usually offered by service providers at an extra charge per square foot.
  • Window washing is not usually included with awning cleaning, but many cleaners offer it as an additional service.
  • Some awning cleaners, such as Clean Canvas[1] , receive fabric covers via delivery or shipping and clean them at their own facilities, then ship the awning back to its owner. Shipping costs vary depending on the weight of the awning, the speed of the shipping, and the shipping carrier used.
Discounts:
  • Many awning cleaners offer 10%-25% discounts for customers who get their awnings cleaned regularly (every 3-6 months, depending on the service provider).
  • Awnings can be a do-it-yourself cleaning project. Awning Cleaning Services[2] describes the equipment needed and the process of cleaning an awning properly for DIYers.
  • Because many awning cleaners factor travel time from their facilities to the job site, choosing a nearby cleaner can cut the cost of the service.
Shopping for cleaning an awning:
  • Check the manufacturer's instructions and warranties on the awnings to be cleaned. Most awnings should be cleaned every 1-2 years. Heavily used commercial awnings may need to be cleaned as often as once per month.
  • Awning cleaning businesses are almost always locally owned and operated. Check with the Better Business Bureau[3] to find a local awning cleaner with a good reputation.
