As the coronavirus spreads, claiming countless lives, many people are ordered to stay at home to prevent the rapid infection of the virus. Most homeowners, while confined to their homes, can venture towards their outdoor patio to avoid experiencing cabin fever. But even your outdoor room can be unsafe. To fortify your outdoor room against the virus and its vehicles of transmission, droplets, here are 3 types of temporary screens you can install for your patio.
Transparent, inexpensive, and pliable, a plastic cover can easily be tacked into posts and fortify the perimeters of your outdoor room. It can block droplets loaded with the virus coming your way, but it also blocks the wind from aerating your patio. To solve this problem, just start your ceiling fan to aid in the air circulation. Frequent disinfection of the plastic cover is also needed to ensure any virus clinging to its surface is destroyed.
Standard Insect Screen
While it was created in order to block insects, your standard insect screen can also block most of the droplets coming your way. Usually made of metal with varying tightness of weaves, the standard insect screen works better stretched.
In times of crisis, improvisation is always a requirement. If you don’t have the other materials lying around, go through your linen cupboard and find curtains. It does sway elegantly according to the wind direction, but it can also partially give you protection and privacy. Just make sure to regularly change the curtains to avoid the virus from clinging onto it.
With good hygiene practices, regular disinfection, and moderate caution, we can all get past this pandemic unscathed. We hope after all this blows over, you can call Woodlands Patio in order to install a permanent screen that protects you from outdoor elements, whether it’s visible or not.
