Winter has left Louisville and it is time to clean off all of the gunk that has collected in your window screens over the last year. But before you start, make sure that you have all of your supplies ready to go.
Supplies Needed to Clean Window Screens
You will need the following to scrub your window screens:
- Towel or rag
- Water hose
- Warm water and dish soap mixed together in a bucket
- Soft-bristle brush
Getting Those Window Screens Cleaned
To start, remove the window screens from the house and gently beat them with the towel or rag to get the loose dust off. You can also vacuum the windows screens to get even more loose dust off it you have the time.
Next, take the soft-bristle brush and scrub the screens using the warm water/dish soap mixture. Finally, rinse off the screens with the water hose and allow them to air dry.
Don’t Forget About the Screen Doors Also
Your screen doors need to be cleaned just as much as your window screens do, but so many people don’t think to clean them.
To get those screen doors ready to be used in the summer clean them the same way that you do your window screens. The swinging screen doors that are installed for places like your front door and a single patio door can be cleaned while they are still attached to the house. Sliding screen doors that are used for large sliding glass doors on the patio can be removed and cleaned on the grass like the window screens are.
If you haven’t cleaned your screen doors before, you will be amazed at how much dirt will come out of them. You may also have to scrub for a little longer and harder than you did your window screens to clean up the dirt build up from over the years, but you will be happy with the results.
Replacing Window Screens
If your window screens are damaged then this would be the perfect time to replace them since you have them off the house already. Look for a new window screen that will last for a longtime, and is also easy to see through. Something like our TruScene window screens.
TruScene is a lightweight window screen that is made with a stainless steel mesh so it holds up better than the material your old window screens were made of. And this material along with the design allows it to give you a better view out of it than other traditional window screens.
