Living in Australia you become all too familiar with extreme weather changes, strong winds and pest infestations that are all too common and hard to run from. Because of this, Crimsafe screens are a great choice in almost all homes across the country as they are built to withstand and combat the extremes we see in Australia.

When you do install Crimsafe, to ensure they keep your family safe for years to come, you do need to keep the mesh doors and windows clean. This keeps them in top-notch quality and allows them to do their job – protecting your home, your belongings and your family.

So what’s the best way to clean your Crimsafe screens?

To properly clean your removable fly screens, use a soft bristle brush and soapy water to remove the dust and dirt. For fixed Crimsafe screens, gently dampen a cloth with soap and water before wiping the screen with it. Be sure to take proper care when cleaning, as this will help maintain air flow and ensure longer life span for your Crimsafe screens.

Dust and Grime Removal is Important

Regular maintenance and dust removal are important for the durability of your Crimsafe screen doors and windows. Regular cleaning also helps you keep away from dust-borne allergies.

Here are some steps to guide you through the process of correctly cleaning your Crimsafe screens!

Use Crimsafe Wax and Wash

This involves washing and cleaning your frames and mesh with Crimsafe wash and wax. Once you’ve properly taken out all the grime, wipe down the wash and wax with clean water.

Use Non-abrasive Brush for Cleaning

You don’t want your door screens and frames marked with marks that are tough to take out and compromise the  your Crimsafe screens. A non-abrasive brush ensures gentle cleaning that does not leave any marks. Are some marks on your screens too tough to take out? No problem, Crimsafe stain clean is your all-in-one solution.

Abrasive Cleaners Are a Big NO

Abrasive cleaners are made with strong solvent bases which can damage the powder coating that gives your Crimsafe screens that dense and long-lasting finish.

Environment Determines Frequency of Cleaning

How many times do you need to clean your Crimsafe screen? This strongly depends on the current weather of the area you live in and the amount of coastal salinity and airborne impurities the area has. The below are the recommendations:

Mild Environment (beachfront is more than 10km away) – Every 6 months
Moderate Environment (beachfront is within 1km to 10km) – Every 2 to 3 months
Marine Environment (beachfront is within 500m to 1km) – Every 2 to 4 weeks
Severe Marine Environment (beachfront is within 500m) – Every 1 to 2 weeks
