You probably already know the benefits of having your home’s windows cleaned regularly. Have you ever thought about cleaning the screens on your windows? If you are like most people, you probably have not even thought about it. You may or may not remove them in the winter and give them a quick once over with the hose. That is not quite the same as cleaning them. You should clean your screens every spring before you put them back in your windows. This not only cleans your screens but prevents the dirt and grime from getting on your windows.
Clean Window Screens Improve Air Quality
When you clean your screens, you are improving the air quality that comes into your house. If you open your windows, and your screens are dusty and dirty, all of that dirt is blowing into your home. Now you have all of that dirt floating into your house. Also, allergens can blow into your house causes problems with your sinuses. If you have allergies or asthma, it can cause a flare-up.
Mold is a prevalent problem for many homeowners. Most of the time, it can be avoided. Once it appears, it is a serious problem. All types of mold can be irritating to those with sinus problems. It also decreases the quality of the air in your house. Mold grows easily and quickly when water is combined with some type of organic material. This is what builds up on your screens when they are dirty. Then spores can blow into your house when the windows are open.
It remains essential that you have your windows cleaned regularly. However, if you keep your screens cleaned, you can reduce how often you need to have your windows professionally cleaned. When your screens are dirty and it rains, all of the dirt is splattered onto your windows, where it dries. It leaves streaky dirt behind your windows.
Window Screen Cleaning Options
It is important that you clean your screens properly. There are many small spaces and crevices where dirt can get stuck. Depending on the amount of dirt on your screens, you may have to do some light cleaning or heavy-duty cleaning. If you need light cleaning, a lint brush may be able to clean the screen. Roll the brush over both sides of the screen several times to remove any loose particles built up. If that does not work, use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush to gently clean the screen. You should be careful not to damage the screen. You can also use a hose and a sprayer, or put them in the shower and hose them down. If those methods do not work, there are some more heavy-duty options you can try.
