Here are some tips on how to clean screens and other maintenance tips to preserve the life of your screened-in porch to be enjoyed for years to come.
A screened-in porch can be an extension of your living space. A place to relax and enjoy the Florida sunshine without the annoyance of mosquitoes or other pesky bugs. Below you will find some tips on how to clean screens and other maintenance tips to preserve the life of your screened-in porch to be enjoyed for years to come.
Seasonal Maintenance Tips:
Along with routine maintenance, there is also some seasonal maintenance that is an essential part of the cleaning process. These tasks include:
Gently use a broom to remove dust, debris, and cobwebs on the walls and ceiling.
Washing and wiping the walls with a soft sponge, hot water, and mild soap.
Scrubbing grime and mildew on the concrete floor with a long-handled deck brush, hot water, and mild cleaner after sweeping with a push-style broom.
You can use a vacuum cleaner to eliminate dirt and dust stuck between the mesh screens.
To clean the screens simply use water, and a light soap mixture, and rinse thoroughly using a hose or pressure washer (do not get too close to the screen). If the screen has mildew let the soap and water mixture sit for an hour before rinsing.
Routine Maintenance Tips:
The best way to keep your screened-in porch looking brand new is by doing these routine maintenance tasks:
Dust the screen, and door frames with a counter brush.
Sweep the floors with a push-style broom frequently.
Use a vacuum cleaner to reach dirt and dust that accumulates in the metal frame.
Remove, wash and dry light fixture covers, and outlet covers to get rid of any insects that have accumulated in them.
