The first thing you want to do is get rid of any hanging plants or decorations that are around the awning. Taking your plants down will keep them from absorbing soap,and it will also provide more room for you to put up a ladder.

Find a ladder tall enough to see above your retractable awning. Use a long broom to sweep away all the twigs and leaves that have gathered on your awning. Make sure you get all the corners and crevices.

Use Soap

Use Soap

Use dish washing soap and water to create a solution. Mix the solution thoroughly. Find a spray bottle and pour the soap into it. Spray a small area towards the bottom of your retractable awning. Use a scrub brush to clean the sprayed area. Slowly work your way up until you have removed all the dirt and mildew.
