All structures in our homes and buildings need periodic maintenance, and your screen enclosure is no exception. Maintenance will not only ensure your screen enclosure looks good as new but also extend its life span.
Maintenance can be of different forms, but constant cleaning is king. Below is a guide on screen enclosure cleaning and how to get help for your property cleaning.
Manual Screen Enclosure Cleaning
You will need a garden hose, soft brush, bucket, and dish soap for manual cleanup. First, add the dish soap to a bucket of water until frothy and foamy. Then dip your brush before scrubbing to clean your screen enclosure.
A manual cleanup may appear easy in theory, but it can be challenging, mainly because of the hard-to-reach areas. In such cases, a power washer will come in handy. And as you use one, ensure you are mindful of excess force, which can damage the screen enclosure. Also, be careful not to fall and injure yourself as you try to reach trouble spots.
Algae And Moss Cleaning
Cleaning your screen enclosure is hard but cleaning off moss and algae is more challenging. Bleach and vinegar work in such scenarios. However, you must be very careful as you can damage your screen enclosure if you misuse vinegar and bleach.
But the trick is to avert damage and remove the algae and moss. Start with a dilute mixture and try cleaning on a small area and see if it works. If it does, you can proceed to the other areas.
Cleaning Lanai Screens
You’ll need hot soapy water and a soft-bristled brush to clean a lanai screen. You can also use a pressure washer, but you have to ensure you are very careful with it to prevent damaging frames and screens.
Cleaning A Screened Porch
It would be best to have a non-ammoniated all-purpose cleaner, warm water, and a scrub. You will need to clean the mesh and the drain before rinsing them with a hose and allowing them to air dry.
Cleaning Enclosed Patio Screens
It would help if you had a pressure washer to clean an enclosed patio. You can also use a garden hose having a jet spray nozzle. Start by going for areas with the most collected pollen. You can use a rag to wipe off a filthy area before rinsing with the hose.
Cleaning Outdoor Patio Screens
Add dish soap to a bucket full of water. Dip your soft brush into the liquid before scrubbing the screen from the inside. Any dirt that was remaining will loosen.
