    Maintaining Your Security Shutters

    Roll shutters are a fantastic investment. They protect your home or business against extreme weather conditions as well as increase your overall security. This is a valuable investment that should be protected. When it comes to maintaining your shutters, there are a few simple things to keep in mind to ensure the longevity of your shutters.

    Maintenance Tips

    Maintaining your shutters doesn’t have to be difficult. Regular maintenance will help to keep your shutters in a great working condition. Some tips include:

    • Cleaning – In time, dust and dirt can build up within your shutters which can lead to jams. It is a good idea to wash your shutters every 4-5 months. It is important to avoid any harsh chemicals such as bleach or solvents. You’ll also want to avoid any abrasive cleaning tools such as steel scrapers, brushes, and other sharp tools. If regularly maintained, all you need is soap, water, and a hose.
    • Lubricant – It is helpful to grease the bearings of your shutters at least once a year. This can help to prevent rusting that can eventually damage your shutters inner mechanisms. You’ll want to avoid sticky lubricants because these can attract dust and dirt. A simple anti-static lubricant spray can get the job done.
    • Polish – A good polish not only helps to maintain the longevity of your shutters, but it also helps to remove grim and make your shutters shine. It is recommended that you polish your shutters with methylated spirits.

    Maintaining your shutters doesn’t have to be a lot of work. Taking small steps such as cleaning regularly, applying lubricants, and keeping your shutters polished can make a huge difference in the lifespan of your shutters. If you have any questions in maintenance, or you’re unsure of what products would work best, turn to a professional for all your questions and concerns.
