Cleaning windows with sunscreens or solar shades requires a gentle approach to ensure you don’t damage their integrity or appearance.
Begin by dusting the sunscreens or solar shades using a soft, dry cloth to remove loose dirt, dust, and debris. Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to gently vacuum both sides of the shades, effectively removing finer dust particles.
For stubborn stains or spots, prepare a solution of soap and warm water. Dampen a clean cloth in the solution and gently blot the stained area, avoiding vigorous rubbing to prevent damage to the material. Allow the sunscreens or solar shades to air dry completely before raising or lowering them, ensuring they are fully dry to prevent any damage. Avoid using strong chemical cleaners, as they can damage the fabric or affect the UV protection properties of the shades.
Preventing the accumulation of dirt will extend the life of the solar shades and sunscreens. Regularly dust and vacuum at least once a month to extend their life. We always recommend referring to the manufacturer’s care instructions for specific guidance on cleaning and maintenance.
Following these steps will help you keep your sunscreens or solar shades in optimal condition, ensuring they continue to provide effective sun protection and maintain their appearance.
