FAQ Cleaning questions

What does it cost?

Everyone’s canopy is unique, with numerous factors that will influence the price of our cleaning service. For example, if access is an issue and scaffolding is needed, this is factored in. Once you contact us, we will look up your canopy and come back to you with a quote.

Can I just get my curtains or canopy cleaned separately?

Yes! We can give you a quote to clean just your canopy or curtains.

Do I really need to clean my canopy?

The short answer is yes, especially if your home is located in a damp or coastal area. As a rule of thumb your canopy should be cleaned every 3 to 6 months, depending on exposure to pollution, bugs and airborne salt. This helps to ensure your canopy frame and fabric will last as long as possible.

Can't I just do this myself?

Of course! If you’re the DIY type, then we highly encourage you to clean your canopy and curtains on a regular basis. Please visit our guide for further information.

We recently had a "Fresco" canopy put over our deck - I have to say the whole experience was very pleasant - The standard of workmanship was very good, the installation guys even swept down our pathway after the the job was completed - The entire project was on time and the price given, was just that, no hidden extras - I would recommend this company to anyone - Good people and good to deal with - I would use this company again should the need arise.

This is the second house we have put a shade on. The guys worked no stop all day to get it installed for our party the next day. Super happy with result, and have used it very day over the summer
