Window screens can be a real pain to clean, but they play a crucial role in keeping your home fresh and bug-free during the warmer months. In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps to remove your window screens and clean them properly.
How to Remove Window Screens
First, you need to remove the screens from the windows. Most window screens have small tabs or levers on the frame that you can push or pull to release the screen. Others may require a screwdriver to remove. Make sure you take note of how the screen came out so you can easily reattach it later.
BE CAREFUL: Be gentle when removing the screen and make sure not to push near the center of the frame as it can bend easily.
DIY Screen Cleaning Methods
There are several methods to clean your window screens at home. One common method is to mix a few drops of dish soap in a bucket of warm water. Dip a soft-bristled brush or sponge into the soapy water and gently scrub the screen. Rinse the screen with a garden hose, making sure to rinse away all the soap. Let the screen air dry before reattaching it to the window.
Another popular method is to use a lint roller to remove dirt and debris from the screen. Simply roll the sticky side of the lint roller over the screen until it’s clean.
