IMPROVE AIR QUALITY
Dirty window screens aren’t just eyesores; they affect their indoor air quality of your home. All the air passing through your windows will bring in all the dirt and allergens on the screens themselves into your home. If there are already holes in the screens themselves, it’ll be worth replacing them to help improve your family’s overall health.
Unless you’re maintaining your screens regularly, environmental factors can seriously decrease the life of your window screens. A normal screen should last you 10 to 15 years before it needs to be replaced. If properly cared for with cleanings every 3 to 6 months, you can add 5 additional years to your screens life! Start fresh and you won’t have to think about replacing them for at least 20 years!
