Maintenance and Care Tips for a Motorized Retractable Sun Screen

If you want your motorized solar screen to stay looking good, you need to care for it properly. That means taking the time to clean it and making sure that it’s free of dirt, dust, and other debris. In addition, you should inspect the mesh screen regularly for any signs of wear or damage. If you take good care of your screen, it will last many years. 


Using a soft-bristled broom, remove loose debris such as cobwebs, leaves, and dead bugs. 


Fill a bucket with water and soap (mild like Dawn or Ajax) and use a cloth to clean dirt and other residue that has collected on the mesh screen. If there’s a stain, try using an organic stain remover spray and blot with a damp cloth. Repeat this process until the blemish is gone.


Use a garden hose or bucket of clean water to rinse the motorized sun shade. We do not recommend using a power washer as the pressure can damage the screen.
