Just as it is with everything else, cleaning is an important part of the care of a DynaDome enclosure. And while the thought of cleaning such a large structure might not excite you very much (we don’t blame you), we thought we’d give you a few pointers on how to clean your DynaDome.
Actually, what to use and what not to use is very important in cleaning your enclosure. Most of the time, just tap water from the hose is all that is needed if you want to clean the outside of it. However, sometimes you might want to clean each panel by hand. In that case, it is important to know that typical washing agents should not be used; they are too harsh for the polycarbonate material and will result in hazing or scratching. Additionally, hand towels and paper towels are not recommended to clean the panels. According to the manufacturer of the polycarbonate, only a soft cloth and mild soap with lukewarm water should be used to wash the panels safely.
Microfiber towels from local big lot stores will vary in the results. The stitching may scratch the panels, or the towel may contain grids, which will also leave abrasions on the surface. Instead, we recommend using towels from Norwex. Norwex cloths provide a streak-free result and are very good for many other applications. Norwex products provide a chemical-free solution for everyday cleaning. Not only can Norwex be used to clean your DynaDome, but it can also be used for your household needs, as well, such as the kitchen, windows, counter, stainless steel appliances, and many other areas.

Not only is it important to know what to use, it is equally important to know the best time to clean. Like a car that streaks dry in the middle of the day, DynaDome’s polycarbonate panels are best cleaned either early in the morning or just before the sun goes down. These cleaning times will provide the best results.
