How often should a flyscreen be replaced?

The frequency of flyscreen replacement depends on several factors, including the quality of the initial installation, the material used for the flyscreen, and the environmental conditions it's exposed to.  In general, it's a good practice to inspect your flyscreens every 12 months to assess their condition.

Here are some general guidelines to help you determine when it's time to replace a flyscreen:

  1. Visible Damage: If you notice visible tears, holes, or damage to the flyscreen, it's a clear sign that replacement is necessary. Even small openings can allow insects to enter your living space.
  2. Fading or Discoloration: Over time, flyscreens may fade or become discoloured due to exposure to sunlight and environmental factors. While this may not affect their functionality, some people choose to replace them for aesthetic reasons.
  3. Corrosion: For metal frames or components, check for signs of corrosion or rust. Rust can weaken the frame and compromise the integrity of the flyscreen.
  4. Mesh Deterioration: The mesh itself may deteriorate over time, especially if it's exposed to harsh weather conditions or direct sunlight. If the mesh becomes brittle or begins to break down, it's time for replacement.
  5. Pest Infestations: If your existing flyscreen has failed to keep pests out, it's a clear indication that it's no longer effective and should be replaced with a more robust option.
  6. General Wear and Tear: Flyscreens will naturally experience wear and tear over the years, especially in high-traffic areas. If you notice that they no longer function as intended or have become loose or saggy, it's a good time to consider replacement.

If you identify any of the issues mentioned above, it's advisable to replace them promptly to maintain effective insect protection and ventilation. High-quality flyscreens, properly maintained and replaced when needed, can provide years of reliable service.

Can one fly screen be used to cover more than one window?

While it's possible to use a single, larger fly screen to cover multiple windows, it's generally more effective to have individual screens for each window. Individual screens offer better coverage and protection against insects, ensuring that every window is adequately safeguarded. Custom-fitted screens for each window also provide a neater and more efficient solution.

Should flyscreens be cleaned regularly?

Yes, flyscreens should be cleaned regularly to maintain their effectiveness and prolong their lifespan. Dust, pollen, and debris can accumulate on the mesh, reducing airflow and making it less efficient at keeping insects out. Cleaning can also help prevent mould and mildew growth in humid conditions.

To clean your flyscreens, remove them from the windows or doors and gently brush or vacuum off loose dirt. Then, wash them with mild soap and water, rinse thoroughly, and allow them to dry before reinstalling. Aim to clean your flyscreens at least once or twice a year, or more often if you live in an area with heavy pollen or dust.

What is the best way to clean flyscreens?

The best way to clean fly screens is as follows:

  1. Remove the Screens: Start by carefully removing the fly screens from your windows or doors. Lay them flat on a clean, flat surface or prop them up in a stable position for cleaning.
  2. Dust and Debris Removal: Begin by gently brushing or vacuuming the screens to remove loose dirt, dust, and debris. You can use a soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner or a soft bristle brush for this step.
  3. Wash with Mild Soap: Fill a bucket with lukewarm water and add a few drops of mild dish soap. Dip a soft sponge or microfiber cloth into the soapy water and gently scrub the screen, working from top to bottom. Pay special attention to areas with stains or buildup.
  4. Rinse Thoroughly: Using a hose or a clean bucket of water, rinse the screens thoroughly to remove all soap residue. Make sure to rinse both sides of the screens to ensure they are entirely clean.
  5. Dry Completely: Allow the screens to air dry in a shaded area. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can cause the screens to become discoloured. Ensure that they are completely dry before reinstalling them.
  6. Reinstall: Once the screens are dry, carefully reinstall them back into your windows or doors, making sure they fit snugly.

Cleaning your fly screens once or twice a year, or more frequently if needed, helps maintain their effectiveness at keeping insects out while allowing fresh air to flow freely. Regular cleaning also prevents the buildup of dust and debris, ensuring a cleaner and more comfortable living space.

Can you vacuum fly screens?

Yes, you can vacuum fly screens as part of their regular maintenance. Vacuum cleaners are perfect for indoor fly screen cleaning. Using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment is an effective way to remove loose dirt, dust, and debris from the screens. The vacuum cleaners brush not only effortlessly eliminates surface dirt and dust but also reaches small corners and crevices without causing damage to the mesh.
