Fenetex Screen Maintenance & Service

Your Fenetex screen comes with a variety of benefits, most of which can complement your living lifestyle. But when you order our products, it’s important that you know and understand how to carry out proper screen maintenance. Depending on which screen or screens you ordered, your product can serve countless purposes: insect protection, hurricane protection, shade, etc. But if not taken care of regularly, your product can easily degrade through wear-and-tear leaving your area vulnerable to the elements and other factors. Continue reading below and see how you can perform proper maintenance on your Fenetex screens.

How To Perform Fenetex Screen Maintenance

There’s typically no set of steps that need to be followed in order to ensure proper maintenance is done. Rather, there are procedures you must follow for separate components of your screens. Each one requires different maintenance for it to perform its function accordingly. You must also regularly check up on some of them and see if they still function properly through near-daily inspections. Below are the separate parts of your Fenetex screens and how to take care of them.


Lucky for you, Fenetex screens don’t require maintenance beyond occasional cleaning and lubricating. So on a, say, weekly or even bi-weekly basis, you should be cleaning your screens from debris or residue that cling on to their surfaces. You will need a soft brush and a mild detergent when cleaning your screens.

Make sure to brush your screens in a circular motion and clean every area possible. Rinse and allow them to completely dry before raising them back up.

NOTICE: Do NOT pressure wash them.

Once cleaning and drying is done, clean and polish your vinyl windows using the proper cleaner. This should be done every 6 months.


Although no regular service is required, it’s recommended that you operate your motors occasionally. Also, on an annual basis, it’s recommended that you have your installer inspect, adjust, and lubricate the tracks.

If your motor isn’t functioning properly, it may be due to loss of power or accidental programming. If programming appears to be the problem, consult a programming guide. We have one HERE for you to view if needed.

If power is the problem, check the circuit breakers and/or GFI outlets.


When lubricating your tracks, use only a Teflon-based dry lube. Never use silicone or oil-based products.

If your screens appear wrinkled or binding then the tracks need to be adjusted. Using a screwdriver, evenly adjust the fasteners inside the track in or out a few turns. Doing so will either tighten or loosen the screen and return it to normal operation.


By checking on all of these components of your Fenetex screens, your retractable screens will provide you with long-lasting protection and shade.
