From a cooler home interior in the summers to a reduction in energy bills, solar sunscreens offer plenty of benefits to the homeowners. Owing to the plethora of benefits, they’re quite an investment. If you don’t look after your solar sunscreens well, they’ll soon lose their efficiency. When that happens, these window screens won’t serve the purpose that they’re supposed to, that is, offer protection from the UV rays of the sun.
The most important tip to keep your solar sunscreens in top shape for longer is to ensure that they’re cleaned properly and regularly. While it’s always better to hire professionals to do the job, you can do it yourself too. This blog post will help you learn the right way to clean your solar sunscreens and ensure that your window screens continue to offer the benefits you’ve invested so much money for.
Get the Right ToolsSolar sunscreens are not like regular window screens. You’ll need some particular tools when you’re working with them. You’ll have to disassemble the screens from the windows to clean them. You’ll need a screwdriver to remove it from the window and appropriate cleaning utensils and materials. Keep all tools handy.
Remove the Solar Sunscreens CarefullyRemove the solar sunscreens from the window using a screwdriver very carefully and place them on a flat surface. Solar sunscreens are very delicate and should be handled with care.
Wash the Screens GentlyOnce you've laid out the screens flat on the surface, pour mild soapy water over them and scrub them in both directions very gently using a soft cloth or a brush with soft bristles. Don't rub the screen too hard because it might damage it. Solar sunscreens are weaved quite tightly, so you'll need to make sure all the dirt is scrubbed off. Now, rinse the screens with clean water. Use plenty of water to make sure there's no dirt or soap residue left. Rinse them on both sides just to be sure they're absolutely clean. Don't pressure wash your window screens. They’re delicate and won’t be able to withstand the pressure.
Dry the Screens WellYou’ve got to wait for the solar sunscreens to dry completely before installing them back. Lean them against a wall that receives fresh air. Clean the window frames while the screens dry, so that the windows are clean and tidy.
Reinstall ThemOnce the screens have dried, reinstall them into the window frame using the screwdriver. Make sure the screens are secured well.
Taking care of solar sunscreens is quite easy. You just have to look after them actively. If you don’t clean them regularly, they’ll become dirty. If you don’t handle them gently, they’ll break. Be very careful when you’re handling your solar sunscreens. Also, always hire the best solar sunscreen professionals to install them in the first place. The better the quality and installation of your window sunscreens, the longer they’re likely to last.
