Do not ever water jet your outdoor materials as this will only damage the materials and remove any waterproofing the materials might have.
Always wait until the canvas is dry before dealing with mud or dirt, when it can usually be removed with a stiff brush. Stubborn marks can be tackled with plain water, but anything stronger should be avoided if possible. If too unsightly, try soap and water but never detergent. Any area touched by the soap solution will have to be reproofed.
Windows with water and wiped with a soft cloth to remove drips.
Small patches can be treated with an aerosol proofer and should be applied when the awning is dry and in a well ventilated place. Note the proofer contains solvents which are highly flammable. For larger areas it may be better to use a soft paint brush. Ideal conditions are a warm, dry day, but avoid hot sun which will dry the proofer out too quickly. Do not forget to protect vinyl windows, mudwalls, grass and tarmac while using products which contain spirit-based solvents. Do not pack the awning away until the solvent has completely dried out.

OSS Target: supreme quality and competitive pricing for a complete product [design and manufacture].
So why pay someone for design, digital cutting and materials?
Whilst OSS can provide a complete service from design through to product finish, we know price is always at the forefront of a purchase so we strive to do all we can to offer excellent value in the service we provide.
To that end, we enable our clients the facility to design and purchase their own materials and present either cut panels or raw materials to us for onward assembly. This means we only charge you for the work we do without added costs of purchasing your materials with large mark ups. This puts all control of costs back into your hands. OSS is also able to hold stock of your materials on site.
Working with OSS gives you confidence that we stitch and develop your design out of the materials you require leaving you in control of the finished products and your new developments going forward.
Small design changes can be easily dealt with when you are in charge and these can be incorporated into the assembly with minimum fuss and loss of material or time.
Once a design has been agreed, the panels are digitally cut and arrive at OSS for us to stitch your solutions together, no matter what the product you have ordered.
