When you’ve spent money on making your home secure, maintaining and cleaning your security screens in Brisbane ensures they keep protecting your home. All mesh window screens capture some dust and impurities which can colour the screen itself, or make your home dusty.
As Crimsafe mesh is corrosive resistant, any build-up of dust, salt, moisture and other airborne impurities can give a stained appearance. Reddish coloured marks are caused by a combination of salt, moisture and airborne impurities while white marks that look fluffy are from a salt build-up.
While Crimsafe security screens in Brisbane won’t rust (the 304 grade stainless steel combined with high-grade pre-treatment and UV fade resistant powder coating offers a lifespan of around 65 years), regular maintenance is essential to keep your security screens looking great.
Regular maintenance of your Crimsafe screens is easy. Simply wash down the frames and mesh with Crimsafe Wash and Wax in warm water. It is best to use a soft non-abrasive brush and then follow with a wipe down with clean water. If you can’t get Crimsafe Wash and Wax, you can just as easily using a regular car wash and wax – you’ve probably already got some in the garage!
How Often Do I Need to Clean my Security Screens in Brisbane
How regularly you need to clean your security screens will depend on your location.
Within 500m of beachfront or 100m of a sheltered bay – If you’re living in a beachside suburb in Redlands or Moreton Bay, or even along the riverfront in Brisbane, it is best to clean your security screens every 1 – 2 weeks.
Within 500m – 1km of beachfront or 100m – 1km of sheltered bay – This covers plenty of suburbs around Brisbane and along the coastline. For homes this close to the water, you should look to clean your security screens every 2 – 4 weeks.
Within 1km – 10km from beachfront or sheltered bay – Covering many suburbs along the Brisbane River and along the coast, if you are up to 10km from the beach or a river, you should look at cleaning your security screens every 2 – 3 months.
More than 10km from beachfront or sheltered bay – for those a little distance from the water, cleaning your security screens every 6 months should be fine.
If you live close to freshwater, this isn’t considered to be a high-risk area, so cleaning every 6 months or so should be fine.
