Effective Window Screen Cleaning
Hawaiian Window Screens
Many homes in Hawaii have window screens. Bugs, dust, dirt, leaves, pollen, allergens, and pollutants from the outside air are all trapped in window screens, protecting the lungs and noses of your family, friends, and visitors from all those pesky and unpleasant particles. Cleaning them regularly is a tough job for multi-story or even multi-windowed one-story residences.
Our Cleaning Process
The number one quality of a great window screen cleaner is patience. Having patience and being vigilant are two crucial aspects of effective window screen cleaning.
1. Setting Up for Success
Our first step in the process is setting up for success by designating a specific area in the backyard or outdoor area where the screens will be laid once they are removed. Making sure we have a clear area that does not require our passing through it, so we can have ample space and time for cleaning and drying the screens, is the first step on the path to success.
2. Screen Removal and Placement Markers
Next, we begin the process of removing screens. Older hinges for holding screens, also called Butterfly latches, are prone to breakage and cracking, so we use extra precaution during the removal process to make sure all Butterfly latches remain intact, and we assess any that might be damaged and require replacement by our team.
Different window screens fit into their specific frames as well, so to smooth the reinstallation process at the end of our service, we mark the screens and their corresponding frames with numbered duct tape. It makes reinstallation a breeze, so to speak, and you’ll never have to worry about misfit window screens.
