Expert tips on how to clean your screens
Posted By MyGuy
OK. You are ready to clean the screens on your home. You want yours to
look like your neighbor's. Grab a flat head and Phillips screwdriver
and remove all the screens. One is for turning screws and one for careful
prying. The black tabs on the bug screens indicate the way in which you
want to push the screens. Push the opposite way of the tabs so that they
come free of the tracks they sit in. Sunscreens are easy to remove and
are self-explanatory. Separate them so that you can recall where they
go and no more than three high, stacking them on a hard flat surface.
Read on to learn how and what the pros recommend making this a much easier task.
You will need the following items:
- Tide with bleach alternative
- a stack of clean hand towels
Mix one cap-full of Tide to four gallons of water. Start with the first
stack of three screens: scrubbing the top screen. Stacking them saves
on the amount of mix needed to do all the screens. You will need to scrub
the sunscreens more vigorously. Scrub, flip and repeat on each screen.
When a single bug screen is done, lightly tap the bug screen on the ground
to remove excess soap. Lean the bug screen on a fence and snap a towel
against the bug screen flicking the soap away. Then use a dry towel to
polish both sides of the bug screen. To remove the soap and dirt from
a sunscreen you will need to be more persuasive with a garden hose and
nozzle. Set the nozzle on fan. Most important is to remember that both
types of screens do not like a lot of pressure against the screens themselves.
Any excessive pushing against the screens will result in sagginess. Let
the screens dry thoroughly and hang. But, if all that seems daunting
visit MyGuy and they would be happy to recommend a great company to do the laborious
task for you.
