How should I take care of the pleated mesh?

For daily care, tap the dust off lightly with a duster, and then wipe the screen using a damp cloth or sponge. Place your hands on both sides of the screen and wipe the mesh vertically along the pleat line as if kneading it. Accumulation of dust, debris, and pet hair may cause rough opening and closing or other problems. Regularly remove accumulation by using a vacuum cleaner. When door becomes very dirty wipe using a damp cloth that has been soaked in lukewarm water and mild detergent, then wipe using a damp cloth soaked in clean water.
