Winter is trying to stick around just a little longer, but it’s almost time for spring cleaning! You probably have spring cleaning plans for the inside of your house, but don’t forget about your fence! Mother Nature can be very harsh to your fence during the winter, so it’s very important not to ignore your fence when you set up your spring cleaning checklist.
Spring Cleaning Wooden Fences
There’s nothing more aesthetic pleasing then a wooden fence, but those can sometimes be the most difficult to clean! But the reputation of wooden fences being hard to clean mostly comes from a lack of maintenance. If you don’t clean your fence for two years, then of course it will be difficult to clean! For your spring cleaning, all you really need is soap and water. For your scrubbing device, make sure you have something that won’t scratch the wood. If you have access to a power washer, that’s a great and fun way to quickly remove gunk and debris. After you have thoroughly cleaned your fence and it has dried, you can add a fresh stain job and protect it with a seal coat.
Spring Cleaning Vinyl Fences
Vinyl fences are almost maintenance free, but they will need a little TLC every now and then. Just like with a wooden fence, all you are going to really need is soap and water. And just like with a wooden fence, make sure your scrubbing device won’t scratch the vinyl material. There are actually vinyl cleaning solutions that will be specifically made for your fence, but talk with your local fence company before buying a certain cleaner to make sure it’s right for your specific fence.
Spring Cleaning Metal Fences
Whether it’s steel, aluminum, or chain link, metal fences are extremely easy to clean. This is actually easy enough that you can have your kids do the cleaning for you! All you need to do is bring out that soap and water again, and then you are basically done! You don’t have to worry about staining metal fences or adding a seal coat. Just make sure that your scrubbing brush is non-abrasive.
