Is your fence officially spring-ready? When people think about “spring,” a few things come to mind. Usually, it’s spring cleaning, flowers blooming, or the rainy season. However, fencing should be on your radar, particularly ensuring that your fence looks its best. Spring clean doesn’t have to stop at your home’s interior. A well-maintained fence adds curb appeal to your property and provides longevity. It’s a win-win when fencing is aesthetically pleasing and sturdy. Here are a few cleaning tips to ensure that your fence looks excellent this season!
Why Fence Cleaning is Relevant in the First Place
Ideally, it’s best to install a fence with minimal maintenance. However, even virtually maintenance-free and high-quality fences need attention now and then. If you notice any black, green, or brownish growth on your fence, you should have it removed to ensure your fence remains its structural integrity. A few things that can make a fence dirty include:
Moisture and humidity cause these organic growths, making your home’s fencing less visually appealing. However, these growths can also degrade your fence over time.
Preparing Your Wooden Fence for Spring
At Hercules Fence Virginia Beach, we stain and seal wooden fences before installing them. However, it’s also essential that this process continues for years to come. It would be best to treat wooden fencing every two to three years by staining, sealing, and cleaning it.
Vinyl Fence Spring Preparation
Vinyl is an optimal choice because mold doesn’t grow on vinyl fencing. Furthermore, it’s so simple to clean a vinyl fence that you can even wipe it down to preserve its beauty. If the surface becomes dirty over time, all you have to do is buy a power washer. Also, many companies specialize in power washing if you’d prefer to leave it to the professionals.
Upkeeping the Magical Shine of Metal Fences
Aluminum and wrought iron, like vinyl, are more durable and maintenance-free options. We use powder coating on aluminum fences to preserve their visual appeal. However, if grass clippings remove some of your aluminum fence’s luster, you can wipe it down with a damp cloth. However, avoid using any cleaning solutions fused with bleach or acids. Liquid dish soap and vinegar coupled with a non-abrasive bristle brush are beneficial.
