Spring cleaning is something people do all over the country, and Florida is no exception. As the weather warms up, you may find yourself in cleaning mode. Many people focus their efforts on the inside of their homes, but spring is the perfect time to prepare and clean the exterior elements of your home as well. One of the exterior items you should clean is your pool screen enclosure. Check out these pool screen enclosure cleaning tips that will help you properly clean yours.
Clean any mold, stains, or other blemishes
The first step for cleaning a pool screen enclosure is working to remove any mold, stains, mildew, algae, or other blemishes that may have gathered on your enclosure during the course of the winter. To clear these substances off your screen, make the perfect cleaner by created a mixture of half hot water and half vinegar. Then, take a brush or a sponge and scrub the affected areas of the enclosure. This should lift any dirt from the screen. If this method is ineffective, try mixing three parts water with one part bleach and scrubbing the area with this mixture. Be careful when working with bleach, as it can stain clothing, harm skin, and damage plants.
Wash it off
Once you’ve completed the first step and removed any dirt from the screen, rinse off your cleaning solution. If you have access to a power washer, this is the best and most effective method for rinsing off the screen. Use the power washer on its lowest setting and work along the screen to get those hard-to-reach places. If you don’t have access to a power washer, use a garden hose to rinse off the screen while using a brush with soft bristles to thoroughly scrub the screen.
Keep an eye out for issues
As you go about the regular cleaning process for your enclosure, keep an eye out for any issues such as ripping, tearing, or sagging. These are signs your pool screen may need repairs. If during your cleaning process you notice you may need to fix your screen, consider calling in professionals to fix it before the issue grows into a larger problem.
