If you’ve made the smart choice to install an aluminum fence in your home’s landscaping, you’re likely already aware of just how low-maintenance and versatile they can be. That said, they still need basic cleaning and care every now-and-again to ensure that they look great and last as long as possible. At Hercules Fence we can help you create the perfect maintenance plan for your fencing system to ensure you are following the proper care routines.
How To Clean Your Fence
Cleaning your aluminum fence is easier than most other types, not only do you not have to worry about rot or rust, but there are few materials that can damage. To clean your aluminum fence, you can simply spray it down with a garden hose to remove most dirt and debris. If there are any areas that need extra attention, you can simply use a sponge and common dish soap. To prevent any dirty water from cleaning to stain after it has been scrubbed, always make sure to give your fence a thorough rinse from the top down. If you live in areas near the ocean, or if your fence is near the street in areas that use a lot of road salt, frequent rinses are recommended to reduce the chance of salt-induced deterioration.
If the paint on your aluminum fence becomes scratched or chips, be sure to patch the spots in a timely manner, these can leave your fence open to further paint loss. Additionally, be sure to adjust and care for the hinges on your gate doors, ensuring that it stays latched and secure to prevent it from banging in that case of wind. It’s also a good idea to refrain from keeping items that could fall onto or blow into your fence near it to prevent unintentional damage.
