Spring is coming, and the bugs too.

The annoying bugs.

How to keep them out.


The spring is coming, the warm and sunny days too, with a lot of flying annoying bugs that wouldn’t let you sleep.

These are some recommendations to keep these little friends outside:

Check every window on your house and its screen. On warm days we used to keep doors and windows open for natural ventilation.

Check for any missing/broken parts. Look over the screens for any tears, holes or other needed repairs.

Wash your screens, this way will be easier to see any damage on them. Dirty screens tend to break easily or become weak. It is easier (and cheaper) to clean and maintain than to replace.

Remember to remove the screens when you are cleaning or inspecting. You will be able to see everything better and it will be easier to do the job. This is a great time to lubricate hinges.

Small holes or tears on the screen, of less than three inches, can easily be patched or fixed. Holes or tears larger than three inches are good reasons to replace the entire screen.

Sometimes you can only replace the mesh, and keep the frame if it’s in a good condition.

It is important to put your window screens, as part of your spring maintenance checklist, the screens still need a good look over and freshening up.

How to Clean Your Windows:

To clean your window screens, combine warm water with a bit of soap. You can use a brush to gently scrub the screens. Be gentle and do not push too hard, you could pop them out.

Rinse the soap off lightly with clear water from a hose or spray bottle. Let the screens air dry. Simple as that!

If you have screens that are too hard to move, you may have to clean them where they are. You have to use a vacuum, soft brush, soft cloth and soapy water to clean them in place.

Rinse with clear water and a clean cloth until there is no dirt. A vinegar and water mixture is another alternative that works well.


Tips on Window Cleaning


Cleaning window screens on a regular weekly schedule will help maintain the screens and reduce the need to do a full and deep clean very often. You can wipe or dust the screens once a week with a duster or soft cloth. This will keep dirt and dust at bay. You can also use a vacuum. Put the soft brush on your vacuum and gently go over the screen. Do not push hard or you will stretch the screen. If the weather is good, clean all the screens at one time and do it outside. If you don’t have a yard or garage, a bathtub will do. So don’t be afraid to get out and start cleaning window screens. Whether you use a cleaning service in San Antonio like Glass Geeks or your own hands, you can feel good about maintaining your home and enjoying the view out of your windows.
