Regular fiberglass window and door screens may not be as sensitive compared to premium security screens. This is because of the way they’ve been manufactured, so knowing which type you have helps you clean it correctly.
So what is the difference between the two screen types? Most households have simple fiberglass window and door screens that are meant to keep dust and insects out. Regular household cleaners such as vinegar, baking soda, and vacuum cleaners will easily to the job of cleaning these screens. However, what will work for standard fiberglass screens may not work for security screens.
Regular screens are intended to keep pesky pests and dust out while still allowing for a nice breeze, where as, premier security screens do the same but are manufactured to also block 60% of harmful UV rays and stop criminals at the point of entry. Security Plus Las Vegas carries premier security screens that are custom built with aluminum frames and woven aircraft steel mesh that is coated to be marine grade. This grading helps to prevent weathering damage. The woven mesh, while although thicker than fiberglass screens, provides more clear views looking out of your home while limiting vision from those looking inward.

Cleaning the screens around your windows may need to be done more often depending on where you live and other factors. Those who are located near a main road or beach should clean their windows more frequently because these areas contain certain elements that can easily damage them, especially during seasons of intense weather. For those who live more than half a mile away from the coastline, cleaning can be done in 3-6 months. However, if you’re within 0.3 miles of the coastline, one may find the need to clean it every 1-2 weeks.
