Window sunscreens are a great investment for any house or building as they protect the interior from the harmful UV rays of the sun and uphold the privacy from prying eyes. However, as with all windows, they will get dirty after some time.
Although, cleaning a sunscreen isn’t the same as cleaning any other window, they are still incredibly easy to clean and maintain. If you use proper equipment and technique, it’s not something you can’t do yourself.
Here are a few steps to follow if you do decide to clean your window sunscreens in Scottsdale, AZ.
Step 1: Gather the Right Equipment
The equipment needed to clean window sunscreens includes a bucket, a hose, a screwdriver, a detergent soap, a non-abrasive piece of cloth, and a brush.
Step 2: Take off the Window Sunscreens
With the help of the screwdriver, remove the sunscreen and gently put it down on a clean surface. Make sure to keep all the screws in one place for safekeeping.
If you feel you are unable to unscrew or lift the sunscreens alone, don’t take the risk of damaging it. Ask a family member to help you with the task.
Step 3: Get Ready To Wash
While a mild detergent soap can do the trick, you can also use a special screen cleaner readily available in the market. Create some soapy water with the cleaner in a pail and start scrubbing your window sunscreen with a piece of cloth gently.
Make sure to scrub at least in two directions. Using a vertical and horizontal direction with your strokes will ensure proper properly the sunscreens are cleaned properly as they are very tightly woven. Don’t forget to repeat the same process on both sides of the window sunscreen.
Step 4: Rinse the Window Sunscreen
Use a hose to rinse off the sunscreens from both sides. Make sure the water pressure is high enough to wash of all soap and dirt particles off the screens. You need to hold the sunscreen vertically on the ground while doing this.
Step 5: Let it Dry
All you need to do is rest the screen up against the wall, making sure you do so with a slight tilt. This will help remove the excess water droplets still clinging on the screens.
Leave the sunscreen outside and let the Scottsdale sun do its job.
Step 6: Reinstall the Window Sunscreen
After your sunscreens are completely dry, use your screwdriver to mount the screens back on the windows. You need to be careful when doing this. Make sure all sunscreens are correctly aligned on the windows.
Follow these steps, for sparkly clean window sunscreens.
