We all know that keeping our homes safe and secure is a top priority. Security doors and mosquito nets are an important part of that security, but they can also be easily damaged if not properly maintained. To ensure that your security doors and mosquito nets remain in top condition, it is important to clean them regularly. Cleaning steel doors is relatively easy; you can use a mild cleaner such as Windex and a damp cloth or soft brush.
Do not use a hose to rinse or spray doors; it is best to use filtered water. While scratches can be gently polished, the coating of some security screens should not be compromised. If you have installed security doors and mosquito net windows, keeping them in the best condition ensures that they work properly and that you use them for as long as possible. However, when we clean our windows, we often neglect the screens that take the brunt of the elements and accumulate dust and dirt over time.
A screen door is there to allow air to pass through a door while preventing insects, pests, and debris from entering your home. If the screen cannot be removed, use a suction hose attachment with a soft brush or try an air compressor to “remove dirt, dust and buildup”. If you have a commercial building that is being cleaned by a service, let them know that they will need to adjust the security screens. The good news is that it's not something that should be done frequently, just regularly, so two to four times a year is usually enough, unless you live in an area with a lot of dirt, smog or pollution, where it's recommended to clean the security screen more often. Keeping your security doors and mosquito nets clean and secure is an easy way to keep your property protected and looking good.
Regular cleaning will help ensure that your security doors and mosquito nets last for many years. Coastal areas should be cleaned at least every two weeks, if not once a week, due to the salty air which can damage the screen if not removed quickly. By following these simple steps you can keep your security doors and mosquito nets looking good and functioning properly for many years.
