Conclusion

Once you’ve chosen the right privacy screens, it’s important to keep up with cleaning, maintenance, and proper storage when not in use, too. Remember to always gently clean your privacy screens with a mild detergent and rinse them off regularly with a garden hose as well. And when it comes time to store them, take them down and gently roll them up or fold them before storing them somewhere safely away from any rodents or other pests that may decide to chew on them. Also, make sure not to store them while they’re still wet from being cleaned.

A little maintenance will go a long way toward preventing your privacy screens from becoming damaged or wearing out sooner than they have to.
