Make your screened porch a great place to be this summer!

If you have a screened-in porch or would like one in the Baltimore area, you are in the right place. You can have all the information you need to keep your screened porch clean, cool, and comfortable, everything it needs to be to give you a great experience relaxing, hosting, and living in it this summer. These tips are your screened porch summer essentials.

Keeping Your Screened Porch Clean

You will not be comfortable or healthy on your screened porch unless it is clean. Plus, your screened porch will thank you. The materials themselves can go bad when they remain caked with dirt and dust for years. Keep your screened porch clean by washing it thoroughly at least once a year. While you can do this task any time of year, you will probably want to do it in spring or fall. 

Steps for cleaning a screened porch include the following:

  • Remove porch furniture and decor, and clean them well
  • Vacuum or sweep and mop the floor
  • Vacuum and dust the windows
  • Wipe down the windows
  • Dust the ceiling fan and lights, if applicable
  • Allow the room to dry and replace the cleaned porch furnishings

Keeping Your Screened Porch Cool

Even if your screened-in porch is clean, it can be unbearable in the heat, especially if it is in the 90s and humid. Using a ceiling fan is one of the best ways to keep your screened porch cool. It will do a fine job ventilating the trapped, hot air. You can also use standing fans, misters, and outdoor portable air conditioners to make your screened porch feel breezy.

Keeping Your Screened Porch Comfortable

Your screened porch might be clean and cool, but if nothing is in it or the furniture is ugly and dysfunctional, you still won’t have a good time. Make it feel like an indoor room with all the furnishings you would have there, except that you are using outdoor-grade furnishings. You can even use solar lamps. That’s it! Those are your screened porch summer essentials. Enjoy!
