Regular usage of anything and ignoring its maintenance eventually results into premature wear and tear and the same is the case of projector screens. Just like any other machine, they too require timely as well as regular maintenance and skipping this can prove costly affair for the users. Therefore, we have come up with a post, where we have discussed the main step associated with this process.
If Your Screen Is Uncoated:
- There are totally different steps to take if the projection screen hired by you is uncoated as in that case, you will initially have to wipe the screen very lightly using a damp cloth.
- In case, the dust is stubborn and refusing to leave, you can sprinkle some water and then wipe it, but as said above, the wiping has to be very gentle.
- The water you sprinkle can also be added with some very mild soap solution as this would generate even better results.
- As far as the cloth is concerned, you need to make sure that the cloth you use is very soft to avoid scratching the surface.
- While wiping, you can rinse the cloth often with clean water.
If your screen is coated:
- In terms of cleaning coated projector screens, the first step is knowing about them and the first thing to know is that coated screens include silver 3D and white gain surfaces.
- These screens are coated with a special coating to keep them performing well for years and this coating can easily get damaged while cleaning.
- Therefore, you should abstain yourself from using harsh cleaning solutions while wiping as they may strip away the coating permanently.
- Experts say that delicate care is required for these types of screens and you will have to use a very soft-bristled brush for removing contaminants on the surface.
- There is also the option of using a micro-fiber cloth to wipe the surface with an up and down motion.
