When it comes to keeping windows clean with fly screens, here are a few tips you can follow:
Regular dusting: Dust and debris can accumulate on both the window surface and the fly screens. Use a soft brush or a duster to remove any loose dirt or dust from the screens and window sills.
Vacuuming: If the screens are heavily soiled, you can use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to gently remove dirt, dust, and cobwebs. Be careful not to damage the screens or the window frames with the vacuum.
Washing the screens: Remove the fly screens from the windows, if possible, and wash them separately. Fill a bucket with warm water and a mild detergent or dish soap. Dip a soft sponge or cloth in the soapy water and gently scrub the screens. Rinse them thoroughly with clean water and allow them to air dry before reinstalling.
Window cleaning solution: For the window glass, use a commercial window cleaning solution or make your own by mixing equal parts water and vinegar. Spray the solution onto the glass and wipe it clean with a microfiber cloth or a squeegee. Avoid spraying the solution directly onto the fly screens.
Spot cleaning: If you notice any stains or marks on the fly screens, you can spot clean them using a mild detergent or soapy water. Dampen a cloth or sponge, apply the cleaning solution, and gently rub the affected areas. Rinse with clean water and allow them to dry.
Regular maintenance: Regularly inspect the fly screens for any damage or tears. Repair or replace them as needed to ensure they remain effective in keeping insects out while allowing fresh air to circulate.
Remember to always follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and maintaining your specific type of fly screens.
