Tips to properly clean your security doors

Maintaining and cleaning your security doors and windows is essential to keep them in tip-top shape.


Why do you need to clean your security door?

Think of your security door or window as a giant filter. Air flows freely through the mesh trapping bugs, dirt and salt spray outside. Cleaning your security screens regularly removes the gunk to keep your screens looking pristine. 


How often should you clean your security windows?

Different areas have different weather conditions so depending on where you live in Victoria dictates how often you may need to clean your security doors and windows. If you live in a rural area along the Bellarine Peninsula, you may want to clean your security doors and windows every three to six months to remove the dust. If you live in Melbourne or Geelong, we suggest cleaning your door every six months or every three months if you are on a busy road. 

On the flip side, if you live in one of our beautiful coastal towns like Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads, Jan Juc or Torquay, you will be familiar with the harsh effects of salt air. If you are in a coastal town, you will want to clean your security screens every month to maintain them for years to come. 


Tips to clean your security door without damaging it

First, it is essential to note you should not use vinegar, lemon or store-bought chemical cleaners to clean your security screen door or window. All you need to clean your security doors and windows is a sponge, fresh water and cloth or non-abrasive brush. 


Step by step instructions to clean security doors and windows

1/ Use a wet sponge to wipe down the security screen and tracks.

2/ Use a soft, non-abrasive brush or cloth with a mild household detergent to remove dust, salt and any bugs caught on the security screen.

3/ Rinse with clean freshwater.

4/ Use a soft brush to clean the locks, hinges and rollers. (Note the cleaning fluids should not penetrate the lock or cylinder).
