With winter just around the corner, we’ve already seen some snow here in North Carolina. This wintry weather can wreak havoc on buildings. Whether you have a canvas or a metal awning, you want to make sure to remove snow and ice as soon as you can to prevent any potential damage. If you let the snow pile up, it can potentially collapse your awning.

An easy way to remove snow from your awning is with a snow broom or leaf blower. Just be sure to follow all safety protocol when doing so.

It’s also important to remove icicles from awnings as soon as you can. These can fall and hurt passersby. Use a shovel or broom to knock these off your awning, but be sure to stand clear so you don’t get hurt in the process.

Once you are done removing all the snow and ice from your awning, use a water hose to clean it off. This can remove any dirt or remaining snow left over on your awning.
