Solar Screen Product Care & Cleaning

An Overview of Care Sunlight, dust, and daily use can expose our solar screens to various elements. However, given their top-notch craftsmanship, these screens are built to withstand the test of time. Made from premium vinyl jacketed fiberglass yarns, each crossover point in the fabric is thermally bonded. This unique process ensures no unravelling and reinforces the overall durability. Despite their robust nature, the beauty is in their low maintenance. Regular light cleaning keeps them in pristine condition, ensuring your screens look fresh and serve you for years.

Maintenance Fundamentals

  1. Regular Dusting: Use a soft brush or a vacuum with a brush attachment to gently remove surface dust and debris. This helps maintain the screen's aesthetic appeal and can be done as often as you see fit.
  2. Deep Cleaning: This might not be a frequent necessity, but for instances where there’s considerable dirt build-up or after a storm, a thorough clean can be beneficial. Using a mild detergent mixed with lukewarm water and a soft brush, gently scrub the screen. Ensure you rinse thoroughly with clean water afterward to remove any detergent residue.
  3. Revitalizing the Screen: Over time, despite the screen's inherent resistance to wear and tear, they might look a bit worn out. In such cases, there are specially formulated vinyl cleaners available in the market. They can help restore the shine and vitality of the screen's vinyl coating.

Cleaning Steps to Swear By

  1. Expose the Screen: Whether your housing box is at the top or bottom of your window, roll out the screen fully to get maximum exposure.
  2. Water is Your Best Friend: A simple hosing down can remove the bulk of the dust and grime. Ensure the water pressure is moderate – you don’t want a forceful stream damaging the fabric.
  3. Gentle Wiping: Post hosing, using a soft, clean cotton cloth, gently wipe the screen in a top-to-down motion. This helps remove any excess water and ensures an even drying.
  4. Natural Drying: Though our solar screens are flame-resistant, we strongly advocate for natural drying. Avoid using heaters or any direct heat source. Let nature take its course and once completely dry, you can roll them back into the housing box.

Caring for your solar screens is a testament to their value and functionality. With minimal effort, you ensure a longer lifespan and sustained elegance.
