A durable and attractive alternative to conventional chain and wood materials, vinyl fencing can provide a polished look without the maintenance and upkeep challenge presented by other fences. Vinyl fencing is stronger and lasts longer than its competitors, and many homeowners are drawn to its reliability as well as its appearance. To keep your vinyl fence looking fresh and clean, put into practice some of these vinyl fencing care tips.
- Dirt and Debris: To remove most dirt, grass and mineral formations, spray down your vinyl fence with a pressurized hose. The water pressure should remove dirt and excess debris. Rinse off your fence regularly to prevent dirt build-up and spot treat areas that need targeted cleaning as needed.
- Small Stains: When treating a stain on your vinyl fence, consider using a vinyl cleaning solution and a soft cloth or brush. Depending on the severity of the stain, soap and water alone may be sufficient. Keep a bucket of water close by, and wipe down the fence with the cloth or brush before rinsing with water.
- Tough Stains: For stains that have been caused by products like paint, tar, wax or crayon, you may want to utilize a wooden or plastic scraper for cleaning. With a chipping motion, use the scraper to peel or pry off stubborn stains. Avoid using metal products on a vinyl fence, as it could cause irreparable damage to the material’s surface.
