Screen Enclosure Maintenance Tips
Does your Florida pool enclosure need some TLC? The Florida Pool Enclosures team is here to help! Our screen experts in Central Florida will walk you through the best ways to take care of your screen enclosure. Here are our top maintenance tips:
Keep Your Screen Clean
Screen rooms add a cozy, peaceful feeling for your family but they also serve as an easy way for insects like spiders and ants who want nothing more than some shade during the hot months of the year! Be sure to remove spiders, cobwebs, and any other bugs that may have made their home inside your screen room. If you're struggling to clean the top rafters in your screen room, the best way is with an extendable cobweb brush.
Be Aware of What’s Inside Your Enclosure
If you have plants or a garden feature inside of your screen room, don't forget to clean and maintain them too. Leaves falling is unavoidable at this time of year, but don't let them begin to pile up inside of your screen room. The pile will most certainly end up in your pool after a strong wind! Also since wind does travel through screens, it can pick up small items such as toys inside your enclosure, and create tears in your panels.
You should not have to deep clean your screen room often, however, if you have trees above your screen room and mildew may show up. You can pressure wash it off, but be very cautious! Often homeowners damage their screen panels by pressure washing them themselves, using too high of a PSI. If you choose to pressure wash to remove mildew make sure your pressure is set at an extremely low PSI to start so as to not tear your screen panels.
Keep Tabs on the Trees Around Your Enclosure
If your treeline is above your screen room, always be observant of low-hanging branches above or near your structure. Clearing these branches away from your screen enclosure will also keep mildew and pollen building up on your screens. Your proactiveness will prevent the possibility of a branch falling tearing a screen or possibly even damaging the aluminum structure.
By taking some time out of your schedule each week or month to clean up after storms or simply do routine checks, you'll be able to save yourself headaches down the road by preventing issues from occurring in the first place! Keeping your patio uncluttered and making sure debris and insects don’t stay in the enclosure are easy ways to avoid screen damage over time so
