The outcome of the clean depends on the condition of the awning prior to a treatment. An awning which has been cleaned regularly will always have a better outcome than one that has been neglected. Mould stains are very difficult to remove but we will work to reduce the visibility of these stains. We endeavor to bring your product back to ”near new” condition.
We will recommend that any rusting on the framework of your outdoor product be referred to an awning specialist for repair.

BEFORE AND AFTERS
As we like to provide proof of our work we ask you for permission to photograph your products before and after our service. This helps to show the progress and shows you the difference we have made!
One of our experts will email you your before and after pics once they have completed their job on site so if you are there or not you will know what the end result looks like!
WHAT WE DON’T TOUCH…
There are products which we may have to decline cleaning due to the nature of the business we are in. If we find that the product has suffered long term neglect or shows major signs that the product has deteriorated we will have to advise that this cannot be cleaned by a Shade Doctor Expert. However, we can offer suggestions on replacements of your product if you wish to find a new solution.
Some manufacturers will produce a product which has a short life span, eg. Online DIY products, retail outlet products you have brought off the shelf etc. When we come across a case where we know the product is outside of the manufacturer’s warranty period we will only be able to clean it to our best ability. We will notify you before proceeding if we think the likelihood of our cleaning service may not work.
