Maintaining your Suneal TY Pergola

Regular maintenance is key to ensure your Suneal pergola remains an attractive home feature. We have developed this simple guide to keeping your pergola in top condition:


  • Regular cleaning: Clean the aluminium frames by wiping them down with a mild soap and water solution. This will prevent dirt and debris from accumulating and potentially damaging the material. This is especially important for homes in regions that experience a lot of dust.


  • Check moving parts: Since the Suneal pergola has motorized parts, it’s essential to check these components regularly. Ensure that the motor and blades are functioning smoothly and quietly, and seek expert assistance should you experience any issues.


  • Inspect for damage: It is also important to regularly inspect the pergola for any signs of wear or damage, particularly after extreme weather events. Ensure to look for any loose fittings or screws and tighten them as needed.


  • Manage rust and corrosion: Although the Suneal pergola is designed with corrosion-resistant materials, it’s still wise to check for any signs of rust, especially in joints and connections. Regular cleaning also helps ensure surfaces remain free of dirt and build-up.


  • Lubricate moving parts: To ensure the smooth operation of the solar protection shutter, apply a silicone-based lubricant to the moving parts as needed. This will ensure that motorized operations can continue to run smoothly.


  • Check for drainage issues: The Suneal pergola is designed with a rainwater discharge system in the posts. It is crucial to ensure these are not blocked and are effectively draining water away.


  • Blade maintenance: The blades of the Suneal pergola should be kept clean and free of debris. This not only maintains their appearance but also ensures their optimal functionality.


  • Professional inspection: Besides carrying out your maintenance, it is worth considering a professional inspection annually, especially for the electrical and motorized components, to ensure everything is in working order.


By following these maintenance steps, the Suneal pergola will continue to be a beautiful and functional addition to the home. Regular care preserves its aesthetic appeal and ensures that it remains a durable, long-lasting investment!
