Fabric Care

These fabric care hints have been provided by the manufacturer for the following specific fabric types. If you are unsure which fabric has been used on any of your awnings, get in touch before following any of these fabric specific instructions.

 

FABRIC CARE - DOCRIL 100% ACRYLIC FABRIC

TO OBTAIN THE MAXIMUM LIFE FROM DOCRIL AWNING AND BLIND PRODUCTS, THE FOLLOWING POINTS SHOULD BE NOTED:

1. Keep the fabric clean by hosing regularly to remove dust, bird droppings and other solid particles.
2. Do not apply detergents, cleaning fluids or insecticides.
3. Keep petrol, oil, solvents, kerosene and other similar fluids away from the fabric.
4. Do not allow bird droppings, earth, sand or vegetable matter to remain in contact with the fabric.
5. Water based stains should be treated first by rinsing with cold water. If this is not sufficient, Docril may be washed with a mild solution of soap in lukewarm water and rinsed thoroughly. We recommend gentle brushing with a soft brush or sponge as harsh scrubbing can damage the teflon coating.
6. It is important that a Docril awning or blind is let down to dry after wet weather and should not be rolled up or stowed away when wet. Outdoor furniture and cushions should also be dried before storing away.

STUBBORN STAINS: CLEAN THOROUGHLY WITH NON-ABRASIVE HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS, DILUTED RUBBING ALCOHOL OR DILUTED BLEACH. RINSE IMMEDIATELY WITH CLEAN WATER AND DRY THOROUGHLY.
