How to Clean a Home Window Screen Before Repair

Cleaning a home window screen before repair is an important step to ensure that the screen is in good condition and free of dirt and debris. To clean a window screen, the best option is to use a damp microfiber cloth and gently wipe the screen with circular movements, taking care not to press too hard. If possible, clean the screen from the outside as well; you may need a ladder. Screen Magic is an easy way to clean screens without having to remove them.

Using a sponge, microfiber cloth or soft-bristled brush and ammonia solution, clean each section of the screen. It's a good idea to wear eye protection and rubber gloves. You should also clean the window frame or door to remove any dirt. When the screen is clean, immerse a clean cloth in running water and wipe the screen and frame to rinse them.

Using a sponge or kitchen towel and a cleaning solution, gently wash the screen. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure as this can stretch the screen and make it more prone to further damage. When cleaning windows indoors, don't forget to leave some old towels to collect water droplets and avoid damaging walls or window frames. Once the window is dust-free, use a vinegar solution or warm, soapy water to clean the window.

Inspecting screens and identifying damage for repair can extend their lifespan and keep them looking good for longer. If you want to make sure your windows are clean and clear, follow these steps to learn how to clean windows from the inside. For dirtier window screens that have received less attention, you can use a lint roller or vacuum cleaner to remove dirt and debris. If the mosquito nets on the windows are even dirtier (at least the third level of dirt), the vacuum probably won't remove everything.
