Keep debris, small stones, dirt and pet hair out of the bottom track. Sand, leaves and other debris will restrict the free flow of the screen. The solution is a simple one. Clean Dry! Do Not hose out track with water. this will actually solidify the dirt in the housing and restrict the screen from tracking properly. Simply dry brush and/or minivac out this debris. For even better performance spray silicone lubricant on the track when finished. We find 1-2 times per year does the trick. Our Desert winds often bring extra debris, so dry cleaning after heavy wind storms is recommended. The Mirage Retractable Screen housing allows for easy access for cleaning.
Mirage Retractable Screens will perform maintenance on your screen doors by request. Contact us at one of our offices to schedule a service on your existing retractable screen doors.
Don't panic! By slowly opening and closing the screen it will feed itself back into the track. If your screen has folded over on to itself it is important not to leave this fold for too long. Assist as needed.
