We just had our backup screen installed, it's been new in the tube sitting, however on inspecting it I see lots of white marks all over it? It's a Silver screen like our old one was...

Anyway I am not sure if it is mildew or what?

Any ideas on cleaning? looks pretty nasty!

Are there any products to clean with?

only thing I've found was for home theatres, Screenrenew.com


On a side note, It looks like our battle to save the Grandview Drive-in in Angola is lost...:huh: :angry:
Demolition has begun and we haven't been able to stop it yet...

Very disgusted with our town officials who clearly didn't give a hoot!

Even worse is that it may very well be for nothing as the proposed Wal-Mart for the site is not likley to even happen!!!

Rather than us buy it the owner will be the proud owner of a vacant lot now.

how stupid is that...

I am heartsick over this turn in events.:(

I know John Pytlak is looking down and isn't too pleased either!

FYI John was just inducted into the Lakeshore School Wall of Fame. (his High School)

Take care all...

Once it is up you can use a screen cleaning brush/wand. When a film is running look up at it at an angle and if you can still see stuff try cleaning it. In my experience theres nothing hard about cleaning... start at the top and clean down. the hard part is getting on the screen and making sure you have cleaned all. If there are scratches etc. after cleaning. Oh-OH.

Sorry about the drive In.

Bottom line one cannot clean a siler screen
The paint finish is usually stained by any mildew and you will always have a blotchy look
Only thing one can do is repaint it

after calling hurley they said it most likly was that the nsilver finish was scratched off OR had stuck to the backing while rolled up, and that was that...

I looked again and agree...

We are going to TRY to repaint, I found the silver screen paint online and are gonna try anyways!

Thanks much!
