If you have security screens on your windows and doors, you know that keeping them clean can be a challenge.
Dust and dirt can get trapped behind the screen and make it look dingy and unclean. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to make sure your security screens stay in tip-top shape.
If you have standard security screens.
Step 1. Vacuum the security screen
The first step is to vacuum the security screens. Use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner to gently remove dirt and dust from the top, sides, and bottom of the security screens. Be sure to move the vacuum slowly and carefully to avoid damaging the screens.
Step 2. Wash the screens
Once you’ve vacuumed the screens, you can use a gentle detergent and water mixture to clean them. Choose a mild, non-abrasive detergent and combine it with warm water in a bucket.
Step 3. Wipe the screens down
Use a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe the screens down. Be sure to rinse the cloth often to avoid streaking. Once you’ve finished cleaning the security screens, use a dry cloth to remove any excess moisture. This will help prevent water damage and keep your security screens looking great.
Step 4 (Optional) Use a mild window cleaner
Finally, you can use a mild window cleaner to give the screens a glossy finish. Spray the cleaner onto a cloth and wipe down the screens. Be sure to avoid spraying the cleaner directly onto the screens, as this can lead to streaks.
If you have Invisi-Gard screens
Strong detergents and abrasive cleaners MUST NEVER be used to clean your Invisi-Gard Security Screens as these may scratch or damage the surface finish and increase the likelihood of corrosion. Invisi-Gard screens should be washed down with a soft-bristled brush using warm mains water and a mild detergent.
By following these steps, you can keep your security screens looking like new. Regular cleaning will keep the dirt and dust away and ensure that your security screens remain in top condition.
