There have been multiple studies that have been done to show the effects that different colors have on people’s moods, as well as what our personal color preferences have to say about our personalities. Those in business marketing have used this science to create logos and signs that will help to create the mood and mindset that they want their company to portray.

Here are some of the influences that colors can have on your customers’ moods:

  • Red is known to increase appetite, which is why many restaurants use red in their logos and on their signs.
  • Blue creates a feeling of tranquility and is often preferred by male customers.
  • Green is connected to health and nature, making it an ideal color for any brands promoting these two things.
  • Black represents stability and intelligence. It is a bold and simple choice for your logo or sign.
  • White is associated with cleanliness and safety. Some white space in your sign or logo can go a long way.

For a while there, it was beginning to seem like we would never see the sun again in North Carolina. Fortunately, this week’s forecast has given us a break from all of that rain and given us some sunny days to enjoy the great outdoors. Awnings are a great way to protect your storefront and your customers from the elements, like rain and sunshine. Unfortunately, that means that your awnings get the brunt of the harsh treatment from these elements, leading to damage over time. So, how can you protect your awnings from sun damage?

One of the main results of sun damage is fading in your awning, whether it’s a fabric or a metal awning. However, fabric awnings are especially prone to fading from sun exposure. The first step to preventing sun damage to your fabric awnings is to pick a weather resistant material such as vinyl. Cheaper materials won’t hold up to the elements as well as some of the sturdier fabrics do.

Another step to preventing sun damage is to apply weatherproofing products to your awnings. Before you do so, you want to clean any dirt or debris from your awnings. Also be sure to follow any of the manufacturer’s directions about what products you can and cannot use.

Keeping Your Awnings Clean ǀ Awnings Greenville, NC

Your storefront is often the first impression that clients get of your business. So, you want to make sure that your signs and awnings are looking great. When it comes to your awnings, keeping them clean will go a long way in maintaining the life, beauty, and quality of your awnings. How you should clean your awning depends on whether you have a metal or canvas awning.

For canvas awnings, it’s especially important to clean these regularly because they can easily show dirt, depending on the color, and because dirt and grime can damage the fabric over time. To clean canvas awnings, you first want to clean off any loose debris such as dirt and leaves; this can be done with a broom or brush, or even gloved hands. Next, you want to get a bucket of water mixed with a mild soap, such as one you would use for your laundry. Wet the awning with a water hose and then use a coarse/stiff brush dipped in your soapy water to scrub away dirt and stains. After you’re done scrubbing your awning, be sure to wash away any leftover soap and dirt with a water hose.

When it comes to metal awnings, upkeep is just as important as it is with canvas awnings. The steps are similar in that you will need a mild soap and water to clean off your metal awning. However, you’ll want to use a pressure washer to clean metal awnings rather than scrubbing it with a brush. Again, be sure to rinse off any leftover soap when you are done pressure washing your awning to prevent staining.

However, because of their long life, metal awnings tend to end up being cheaper in the long run because they rarely need to be replaced.

Canvas awnings are your most affordable option. They also allow you to customize your storefront as much as you want; you can choose from colors, patterns, and designs to create the perfect canvas awning. Canvas awnings to require a bit more upkeep to prevent staining and tearing, but they provide the traditional storefront look that many desire.
