How to Clean Your Retractable Screens

How to Clean Your Retractable Screens

If you’ve invested in retractable screens with mildew-resistant synthetic mesh fabric for your porch or patio, it’s likely that you won’t need to clean them very often. A light brushing with a feather duster or soft brush (not a wire brush) a few times a year may be all that’s needed to remove dust buildup. Some people prefer to use a brush attachment on their vacuum cleaner and lightly waft it over the screen, but it’s important to do this slowly and carefully to avoid damaging the screen.

In the event that your retractable screens have become stained or too dirty for cleaning with a soft brush, sponging them off with a mild detergent and water is an option. Again, take care to be gentle so as to avoid stretching or tearing the mesh fabric. Make sure you allow the screens to thoroughly dry before you retract them into their housing.
