As we approach the summer season, one common issue that homeowners face is the increased presence of insects and pests. With the warming temperatures, insects like flies, mosquitoes, and spiders become more active and tend to infiltrate homes. This not only causes discomfort but can also pose health risks. Preparing for this pest invasion becomes crucial, and North Coast Blinds & Security offers a practical solution with its range of screens and doors.

Security and Insect screens and doors are an effective and eco-friendly way to keep pests out of your home while still allowing fresh air to circulate. Installing and maintaining these screens is relatively simple, and they can make a significant difference to your quality of life by providing a barrier against annoying and potentially disease-carrying insects. Here we will explore the steps to effectively keep pests out using insect and security screens and doors.

Choose the Right Type of Insect or Security Screen

When selecting screens for your windows and doors, consider the material being used.

Insect screens and doors are typically made of fibreglass, aluminium, or stainless steel. Fibreglass screens are common and the most cost-effective choice, while stainless steel, Crimsafe, offer more durability and security.

Purchasing and installing your screens and doors

Regular Maintenance

To ensure your screens and doors remain effective, perform regular maintenance:

  • Clean the screens regularly to remove dirt, dust and debris that can clog the mesh.
  • Check for any tears or holes in the screen material and repair or replace damaged screens.
  • Clean the tracking system of doors for smooth operation.
  • Check locks on doors are functioning correctly.

Insect and security screens and doors are a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to keep pests out of your home while still enjoying the benefits of fresh air and natural light. By choosing the right type of screen, accurately measuring, correctly installing, and maintaining your screens and doors you can create a pest-free and comfortable living space.
