Make Your Sunscreens Look Like New Again

Sunscreens are popular in Arizona. They’re designed to shade your home interior from the sun, and they work really well. But they can create some problems. Over time, sunscreens attract dirt. A lot of dirt! And those once-beautiful screens start looking bad.

Washing them as you would an insect screen doesn’t work well. The dirt turns to mud, making the screens look worse than before.

If you’ve been wondering how to clean your sunscreens – and have them look like new again – read on.

My process

I use the following 3-step process to clean sunscreens

Step 1: Thoroughly dry-brush both sides of the screen.

Step 2: Spray on a specially-designed organic cleaner that safely destroys the dirt and treats the surface of the screen fabric.

Step 3: Wipe down both sides of the screen and frames with a microfiber cloth

When finished, the screen looks like it did when it was first installed on your home.

Clean screens, thrilled clients

Not long ago I used this 3-step process to clean the screens on a large 2-story home in Goodyear. When one of the owners returned home, she drove past their house because she didn’t recognize it! The clean, restored sunscreens had transformed the look of their house.

Below are before and after photos of screens I restored for a client in Estrella Mountain Ranch. Needless to say, this homeowner was thrilled as well.

The cleaning solution

The specially-designed cleaner we use for sunscreens is called Screen Magic. According to its inventor, it contains no solvents, phosphorus or petroleum distillates that can cause ozone depletion. It is nontoxic, nonflammable, inert, and nonreactive. I’ve used it successfully on hundreds of houses in Arizona.
