Tips for maintaining your Screen Enclosure:
How do I wash my screen and aluminum?
Gentle is the key word. Do not pressure wash your screens while they are in the aluminum frame. Leave that to the experts. We recommend using a garden hose, gentle dish soap in a bucket and a soft brush. Use very gentle pressure, do not scrub or use wiry bristles.This should do the trick. Rinse with plain water from the garden hose or air dry.
How do I get rid of mildew or mold on my screen or aluminum frame?
We recommend using a white vinegar solution with warm water. Do not use vinegar or bleach on your enclosure by itself. Use a soft sponge or pad and apply gently. Be sure to use a garden hose to spray all residue off completely. Regular cleaning will help keep dirt and mold at a minimum and will save you a bigger cleaning project later on.
Pool parties and active children and pets around your enclosure over time can cause tiny rips or fraying. Correct installation used with quality screen material should resist against this , however over time they can happen. Regular inspections for these types of issues can prevent big issues later on. Checking for loose spline, rusted or lose screws on older cages , may clue you in it's time to have your enclosure re-screened or even an updated retrofit to a newer style.
Screen Enclosures can take a beating in our hot Florida sun. Humidity and water can create the perfect environment for mildew or mold. It's a good idea to get some information on how to care for this investment. A well-kept enclosure can save you money in the long run.
