TIPS FOR ROLLER SHUTTER MAINTENANCE

Roller shutters are not only beneficial when it comes to protecting the exterior and interior of a range of different types of buildings, they also come with very low maintenance needs. In fact, they pretty much just need to be kept clean and have regular checks to ensure that they are still functioning correctly. Here are a few tips from the experts at ABC Shutters on how to keep your roller shutters in the best working condition…

  • The point of roller shutters is to lock them in place and prevent unauthorised personnel accessing a building or property- however if dust, dirt and debris is not removed from the surface, it may prevent them locking securely.
  • It is advised to wash the surface of roller shutters every 2-3 months with water, a mild cleaning detergent and a soft sponge or brush in order to remove any elements that may prevent them from working adequately, including dirt and salt. With this said however, you should try your best to avoid spraying the water into the box and mechanical area.
  • Get your shutters tested every 6 months to ensure that they are in full working condition. Sometimes you may find that people still trying to access your property despite the addition of roller shutters and whilst they very rarely succeed in their illegal antics, your shutters may suffer some damage. Spotting and fixing it early helps keep your property protected.
