Sunbrella fabric can block 75 percent of the heat from the sun when used as awnings and reduce the temperature in a room up to 15 degrees. The air beneath the awning fabric is 22% cooler than the air under coated awnings per laboratory tests. Condensation is never a problem due to the breathability of the fabric. Savings up to 25 percent may be realized on a residential cooling bill after the installation of Sunbrella awning fabric.

Caution: Solution-dyed acrylic does not promote mildew growth. However, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric., Sunbrella is made from 100% solution dyed acrylic fiber which is thermoplastic. Do not subject to excessive heat, this will shrink the canvas. When Sunbrella fabric is stored, it should be cleaned, allowed to air dry, and stored in a dry, well ventilated area. Never leave rolled up or folded when storing but allow to air dry first. Sunbrella fabrics should be cleaned regularly before substances such as dirt, roof particles, etc. are allowed to accumulate on and become embedded in the fabric.

Cleaning: One of the best ways to keep Sunbrella fabrics looking good is to hose fabrics off on a monthly basis with clear water. This helps prevent dirt from becoming deeply embedded in the fabric and eliminates the need for more frequent vigorous cleaning. In most environments, a thorough cleaning will be needed every two to three years. For more vigorous cleaning options go to https://www.sunbrella.com/en-us/how-to-clean/clean-sunbrella-shade-fabrics.
