When you’re making your list of spring cleaning tasks, washing the windows, and hosing off the deck, don’t forget your fence! Spring cleaning is a critical part of keeping your fence in great condition and ready for the rains of spring and heat of summer. Here are some of our top fence spring cleaning tips to get your fence in great shape in no time!
Vinyl fences are loved for their low-maintenance nature. All you need is a water hose, bucket of soapy water, a soft cloth, and a soft scrub brush. Make sure that the cleaning solution is good for use on vinyl and environmentally friendly. Typically, stains will come right off of vinyl fences. If you need to scrub a little bit, that’s perfectly fine.
Wood fences need regular maintenance to stay in good condition and not suffer from insect infestation, rot, or any other problems. Use a hose or power washer, a good quality wood stain, and a wood cleaning solution. Every 3-5 years, you should take the time to thoroughly clean and re-stain your fence. If you have a mold problem, you can use a mixture of bleach and water to kill it off.
Metal fences, whether they are chain link, steel, or aluminum, shouldn’t need too much spring cleaning. Use a soft scrubbing brush, water hose, and soapy water to get rid of any debris. Cleaning your metal fence should only be necessary about once a year. Make sure that the soap you choose won’t harm metal and let your fence completely dry to avoid any rust. Take a good look at your fence if it’s painted and touch it up as needed.
