How to Keep Your DSD Decorative Screen Looking Its Best

Your DSD decorative screen has a high quality, extremely durable and weather resistant finish. However like all parts of the home, some Decorative Screen Care And Maintenance is required to keep it looking its best 

Deposited dirt can absorb moisture, pressing it against the screen’s powder coated surface, which in turn can cause some blemishing on the coating. This can be avoided with an occasional clean using household cleaning products. Below is some of our ‘dos and do-nots’ for the care and maintenance of your decorative screen product.

Use a Mild Detergent and Warm Water

When cleaning your security screen, use a mild detergent and water. This will remove the grime, dirt and dust, that may accumulate over time

Use a Soft Sponge or Cleaning Cloth

Use a soft non-abrasive cloth or sponge to wipe clear any foreign matter from your decorative screen

Clean in a Soft Circular Motion

When cleaning, wipe your decorative screen product in a soft circular motion. Simply wipe away the grime. Avoid harsh scrubbing which may damage the powder coat finish.

Rinse Off After Cleaning

After cleaning with a detergent and water, make sure to rinse off your decorative screen with clean water, until any residue from the detergent is removed.

Do Not Use Abrasive Cleaning Agents

Do not under any circumstances clean your decorative screen using an abrasive or industrial cleaner, such as Ajax or Gumption. Using these may damage the screen’s finish.

Do Not Use Abrasive Sponges or Cleaners

Do not clean your decorative screen using steel wool or other abrasive cleaning cloths. Using these cleaning items may damage the screen’s finish.

Do Not Use Excessive Force

Do not clean your decorative screen by harshly scrubbing or using excessive force. If this is done continuously it will damage your screen’s finish.

Do Not Forget to Rinse

Remember to completely wash off any residue detergent with clean water. This will avoid deterioration of the finish as a result of soap deposition.

How Often Should I Clean?

How often you should clean your DSD decorative screen depends on the location of your home. In most cases a clean every 3 to 4 months is sufficient. However products installed close to more severe conditions, such as those installed close to marine or industrial environments should be cleaned every 3 to 6 weeks to prolong the life span of the product. Failure to adhere to the cleaning schedule will void the warranty of the powder coat finish.

How Do I Remove Scratches?

If small scratches do appear, you can buff them out using a polishing cloth and good quality car polish. In the unlikely scenario of a significant mark or scratch, touch up paint can be arranged.
