Wood fences are beautiful and classic. Unfortunately, wood fences are also prone to mold, insect infestation, and rotting. Removing mold from your wood fence is not an incredibly difficult process, especially if you’re an experienced DIY-er. Here are our best tips for removing mold from your wood fence.
Easy Ways to Remove Mold From Your Fence
If you don’t have a large amount of mold on your wood fence, there are several particularly easy ways to scrub some off, including:
- Pressure washing your fence
- Mix ½ a cup of white vinegar into a gallon of water. Apply the solution and let it soak on the wood for about 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
- Mix ¼ cup of bleach and ¼ cup of laundry detergent into a gallon of water. Use this solution in your pressure washer to get stubborn mold patches off of the wood fence.
- Use an over the counter wood fence or deck cleaner to get the mold off. These are typically mixed with water and applied with a sponge or scrub brush.
Let It Soak
Some products are designed for lazy homeowners so that all you need to do is add the mixture to a sprayer, spray it along the length of your wood fence, and leave it! These work by killing mildew and mold on the surface over time to restore your fence back to new.
