Cleaning Instructions

Sunfield fabrics are subjected to special treatment with a fluorocarbon which gives the following characteristics:
● Resistance to natural builds up of dirt.
● Oil and water-repellency for a long time.
● Excellent dimensional stability.
However, it is advisable:
● To remove dust periodically from the dry cover, with a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner.
● To wash with clean water at a temperature of not more than 96◦ F (30◦ C), when the dirt is persistent.
● To use trichloroethylene blotter: or a common dry cleaner for grease stains.
● To never use any other chemical product.
● To avoid the buildup of water bags in the middle of the awning, always keeping the fabric in tension and
with an adequate gradient.
● To never roll up the cover when the fabric is wet.
