Proper Maintenance of Your Screen Room

Whether it is an extension of your home or enclosing a pool, your screen room is an investment that you want to protect. You want to make sure that your screen room lasts as long as possible. In order to extend the life of your screen room, it is important to provide it with some routine maintenance. Following these tips will keep you and your family safe, as well as keep your screen room looking its best for years to come.

Cleaning

Cleaning your screen room frame and screens is important for making them last longer. Screens that become dirty and clogged with debris are more likely to rip and tear or give way from the frame. In addition, when debris and pollen are trapped in the screen, it can cause problems for those with allergies.

You should clean your screen room frame and screens at least once per year. If they are not blocked by buildings or trees, the screen room will be cleansed naturally with rain waters. If the room is shaded or blocked from the rain at all, it will need to be cleaned manually. In addition, if your home is power washed using cleaners or bleach, you will need to clean your screen room inside and out to remove the chemicals.

You can clean your screen room by using a regular water hose at low pressure. Simply rinse off the screens and frame with the water. No cleaners are necessary.

Making Repairs

It is important that you repair your screen room when tears appear in the screen or the aluminum frame becomes bent or broken. Bent and broken frames can be a safety hazard for you and your family. Tears in the screen can quickly become big problems if left unattended.
