How to Clean Your Retractable Screen Door

Just like anything else in your home, your retractable screen doors have to be maintained. Doing so will guarantee that they will last longer and with fewer problems in the future. There are two ways to manage your doors: give them a deep clean and get them checked for repairs.

Steps To Cleaning Your Retractable Screen Door

Below is a simple six-step process in which you can deep clean your retractable screen door. You should do this once a year, as it will provide your door with the protection it needs.

  1. Get yourself some mild detergent and some warm water
  2. Mix them and keep it ready for now
  3. Use either a broom or a vacuum to remove all the debris and dust that has accumulated in the door; this also includes the track at the base and top of the door.
  4. With a clean cloth and a household cleaner wipe down the track at the base of the door, as well as top and sidebar.
  5. Once everything has been wiped down, grab the detergent mixture that you made earlier and wipe down the mesh. Continue to wipe down the rest of the door.
  6. Once that is done, gently wipe off the mixture with a clean cloth!

As a special step, you should also use a silicone lubricant spray on the top and bottom tracks of your doors. Doing this will make sure that your retractable screen door slides smoothly. It is best if you do this once a month to ensure your doors are protected year round.
