Many homeowners invest in vinyl fencing because it mimics the looks of wood without all of the maintenance that comes with wood fencing. Even though vinyl fencing is a low maintenance structure, that doesn’t mean you can just install it and then ignore it. Vinyl fencing requires occasional cleaning to remove algae and to keep it looking aesthetically pleasing. Luckily, there are a few simple tips you can follow to care for your vinyl fence properly.
One of the most effective ways to care for your fence is to trim any branches that are hanging over your structure. The last thing you want is a storm or heavy snow breaking off a tree branch that damages your vinyl fence. All you need to do is take a pair of loppers and cut off any branches that have the potential to fall on and damage your fence. It is also good to prevent leaves and other debris from falling on to your fence and forming algae.
Rinse and Repeat
Even though vinyl fencing requires minimal maintenance, it is still wise to clean your fence occasionally throughout the year. Depending on where you live, your fence could get very dirty, so you need to rinse it off with a hose. All you have to do is rinse your fence off thoroughly making sure you are getting rid of all the dirt and debris. If it is extremely dirty, you can always clean your fence with a power washer, but be cautious not to damage it.
If rinsing your fence doesn’t remove all of the stains from your fence, you should try scrubbing them off with a gentle bleach cleanser. All you have to do it use a cloth with the cleanser and rub the stains right out. Once the stain is removed, you just need to rinse your fence off with a hose, and you are finished.
