Most Australians have had mesh or flyscreens at some point. If so, you’d know how difficult they are to keep clean. Placing dishwashing liquid on the door (or removing the screen) and hosing it off is often the go-to method. However, cleaning CrimSafe screens is much simpler. This blog walks you through a step-by-step method to keep your screens sparkling.
As you may know, CrimSafe is the preferred security solution for Australian families. In addition, it is also one of the easiest security screens to maintain. Here are some of the key reasons CrimSafe is easier to clean than other security screens:
This largely depends on where you live. If you live in a city, for instance, we recommend cleaning your screens twice a year. A handy way to remember is by combining it with another regular chore (i.e. getting your car serviced). If you live near the beach, marine winds cause moisture and salt to dirty your screens. In this case, we suggest cleaning them more often (such as every two or three months).
If you live on the beachfront, you may need to clean them more often. We suggest you clean the security screens every two to four weeks. Remember, the closer you are to the sea, the more salt will get into your screens. If left unattended, the surface may corrode. This is one drawback to having such a glorious view of the ocean.
Keeping your screens clean not only ensures they look their best, but also extends their 65-year lifespan. All you’ll need is the following:
Add a small amount of CrimSafe Wash and Wax (or car wash) to a bucket of warm water. This creates your cleaning solution.
Either place the cleaning solution into a spray bottle or dip your cleaning glove into the bucket. Clean carefully over the screen’s frame and mesh, removing dirt and grime as you go.
Rinse out the glove or towel and wipe the screen with clean water. If you prefer, you can rinse the screens off with a hose. It should only take a few minutes to clean each door or window screen.
