Use These Spring Maintenance For Your Residential Fence

How to Tell if You Should Install a Privacy Fence or Not

While you most likely have a regimen for cleaning your home, you probably haven’t considered how to clean off your fence. That’s where Eastern Shore Porch and Patio can provide assistance. Continue reading to learn how you can care for your residential fence. 

Why Your Fencing is Dirty

Your once-pristine and lovely fence now has developed blackish, yellowish, or greenish growth. Vinyl and wood fencing can collect toxic materials such as mildew, mold, algae, and dirt. Mold, algae, and mildew are organic growths that are accelerated by shade and induced by moisture. This is the most prevalent type of accumulation, mainly on vinyl and wood fences.

How to Clean a Vinyl Fence

Cleaning a vinyl fence is less stressful than cleaning other types. A power washer will remove dirt and grime from your vinyl fence. If prepared to do the work, you can clean your fence with a DIY cleaning solution. A well-built vinyl fence can endure for decades, so keeping it clean every spring ensures that it looks beautiful the entire time you have your fence.

How to Clean an Aluminum Fence

While vinyl fencing is simple to maintain, an aluminum fence is considerably easier to clean. Aluminum fences are ideal for homeowners who want to avoid ongoing fence maintenance. Aluminum fences are stylish, distinct, and one of the most durable and low-maintenance solutions. To clean an aluminum fence, you can power wash it or spray it with a water hose.
