  1.           For the majority of American families, the most valuable investment one will make in their lifetime will be the purchase of a home. Maintaining the function of your home and curbside appearances are very important to enhancing the comforts of your home and protecting your investment.  One of the most important but often overlooked components of your home is screens for your windows and doors. Screens offer protection from pollen, bugs, flying insects, and prevent unwanted stray animals from entering the home. At the same time, screens safely contain your pets and toddlers indoors and allow fresh air in.  A home without screens or with tattered screens may reduce the resale value of a home and make it difficult to enjoy the outdoor breezes and garden smells.  Attractive screens are permanently fixed window treatments that make a huge impact on the appearance of your home, its curb appeal, and your family's comfort.

             Before replacing your tattered screens or purchasing new window and door screens, first consider the function the replacement screen will serve and its aesthetic effect on your home. Decide on screens that suit the needs of your family and can withstand the climate in which you live.  For example, toddlers are hard on door screens by pounding and leaning on them, and pets cause damage by clawing on the screens and tearing them. The "function" of the replacement screen then is to keep your children and pets safe indoors while preserving the screen. The screen fabric indicated for this "function" would be pet proof screen fabric, because pet proof screen fabrics are made to withstand abuse from children, pet dogs and cats. It maintains its original luster of a "new screen" by resisting brittleness and mildew, and it lasts for many years to come regardless of the climate in your area. Another homeowner looking for pool or patio screening fabric should also look for screens that are resistant to bacteria, fungus, and mildew, which is characteristic to humid areas. For arid climate, a homeowner should purchase screen fabric that is resistant to fading and tearing, thus eliminating flaking and brittleness caused by daily exposure to the sun in dry climate. Window and door screens that are overly exposed to direct sunlight in arid climate produce heat.  By using solar screens or interior/exterior window shades to filter out and diffuse direct sunlight or block out sunlight, homeowners save on energy as well. The objective for replacement of screens is to install fabrics that serve your needs as opposed to save money on screen replacement. Don’t buy the cheapest screens that could quickly fall apart if the fabric does not suit your need or climate. You could end up paying more money in the long run, because you will have to replace the screen fabric more frequently.  It is better to spend a little extra money up front to buy good quality screens that will hold up and dress your windows while enhancing the appearance and function of your home.

  2. It appears our winter storms may finally be over and warmer days are ahead of us. Now is the perfect time to clean your window and door screens. Why bother cleaning window screens you ask? Cleaning window screens is essential to remove dust trapped inside the screen mesh. When high winds hit screens, the screen ripples causing a whipping effect. This whipping effect causes the screen to release fine trapped dust in the mesh and thrusts it against the glass of the window. With time, this effect can cause fine sandblasting on your window glass giving the window a filmy appearance that will not wash off. The best way to avoid sandblasting of your windows is to wash your window screens at least once a year, particularly those of us who live in the southwest where high winds are a regular occurrence.

    There are several ways to wash your window screens, but the quickest way to wash screens is to remove them from one side of the house at a time and line them up against a wall under a porch—assembly line style—or wash them inside the bath tub. If you wash them in the bath tub, you may want to label the screen with the corresponding window with a pencil in order to return the screen to the same window after cleaning it. Use warm water and any screen cleaning solution or good old soap and water or fresh smelling Pine Sol in warm water. To vacuum, attach a brush attachment to the vacuum cleaner and vacuum both sides of the screen; or to brush clean use a nylon brush to gently scrub off the dust or grime on both sides of the screen. Be careful not to press too hard fraying the screens or causing them to bulge out of the channel, but apply enough pressure to remove any debris on the screen. Once you have removed the dust from both sides of the screen, use the spray hose to wet the screen; then scrub both sides of each screen using the nylon brush and soapy warm water. Be sure to clean the corners and the edges of your screen with your brush, gently scrubbing evenly to remove the grime evenly throughout the screen. Then, rinse the suds off with the spray water hose and dry the screens with an old towel or allow the screens to dry in the sun while you move on to wash the next screen.
