Q: How to clean pool screens?

A: Remove debris from the surface of screens by carefully brushing them with a soft push broom. Then mix a solution of liquid detergent and water. Use a soft sponge to apply in a left to right motion. Rinse with clean water from a water hose and allow screens to air dry. Using a commercial high PSI pressure cleaner is not recommended, due to the fact of high risk for cutting the screens from the sprayer and removing the paint off the aluminum frame. Standard pressure from a water hose is sufficient for cleaning and maintenance.

Q: Should I go with a partial re-screen or a complete re-screen on my Pool Enclosure, Porch or Lanai?

A: It depends on the age of your existing screens. When screens reach the end of their life span they start to turn silver, when a new screen is installed it's a darker color. So, you will see a big difference between your old and new screens. Also, if your screens are near the end of their useful life you will need to replace them soon so it can be more cost effective to have them all done at the same time.
