Keep your aluminum Patio Covers, Pergolas and LifeRooms fresh and clean with these helpful solutions.
In addition to their enduring good looks, our aluminum products are easy to maintain. Airborne pollutants, however, such as emissions from autos and local manufacturing plants, can cause an acidic build-up on any baked enamel product surface. This can easily be removed by periodic cleaning with any household detergent. Simply mix a few teaspoons of dishwashing liquid in a bottle or hose sprayer, applying liberally to all exposed surfaces, then rinse freely.
CAUTION: DO NOT USE ABRASIVE OR SOLVENT-TYPE MATERIALS OR PAINT REMOVER. THOSE MATERIALS MAY SOFTEN OR REMOVE YOUR BAKED ENAMEL FINISH.
Black spots on the surface of your aluminum product may be caused by mildew. Watch carefully for it, especially on protected surfaces, such as beneath eaves or in patio enclosures. To eliminate mildew, prepare and apply the following solution:
1/3 cup detergent (i.e. Tide®)
2/3 cup tri-sodium phosphate (i.e. Soilax®)
3 quarts of water
1 quart 5% sodium hypochlorite (i.e. Clorox®)
Mix ingredients together and apply with sponge or cloth to mildewed areas. Wear protective gloves and avoid contact with skin. Rinse liberally with clean water.
CAUTION: GREATER CONCENTRATIONS MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO ALUMINUM FINISH. AVOID SKIN CONTACT. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING AND RINSING GIVEN ABOVE UNDER “CLEANING TIPS.”
Your LifeRoom is your backyard oasis, free from unwanted insect intrusion and UV rays, so you want to ensure your screens are maintained properly to provide optimum protection.
To keep the screens clean, simply wash with any household detergent and water mixture periodically as needed. Mix a few teaspoons of dishwashing liquid in a bottle or hose sprayer, and apply liberally to all exposed surfaces, then rinse freely with water.
