Maintenance and Upkeep of Pergola ZIP Screens

You can keep a pergola with ZIP screen sides in good condition by using a damp, soft sponge or cloth with a non-abrasive, water-based household solution. Then, dry the ZIP screen by leaving it extended and allowing it to dry in sunlight. The use of corrosive substances may damage the material. The motorized pergola bug ZIP screen should only be cleaned after turning off the power.

During frosts and snowfalls, the screened-in pergola profile may become covered with ice and snow. You should not unfold the structure. The ZIP screen can only be used after the ice has been removed.
