Whether you’ve chosen our durable, aesthetically pleasing vinyl fencing or elegant, sleek aluminum fencing, proper maintenance is key to preserving its beauty and longevity. In this blog post, we’ll share some essential tips for cleaning and caring for your fence from Big Sun Fencing.

Cleaning Vinyl Fencing

Vinyl fencing is known for its low maintenance, but regular cleaning is still essential to keep it looking its best. Use a mild detergent mixed with water and a soft cloth or sponge to remove dirt, dust, and grime. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or harsh chemicals, as these can damage the vinyl surface. After cleaning, rinse the fence thoroughly with water to remove any leftover detergent residue. Use a garden hose or pressure washer on a low setting to ensure thorough rinsing.

Unlike some other fencing types, vinyl fencing is susceptible to mildew growth, especially in humid climates. To prevent mildew, regularly inspect your fence for signs of moisture buildup and promptly address any areas of concern. If you find any mildew growth spots, a quick and easy solution of white vinegar and water can be effective in removing the stains.

Caring for Aluminum Fencing

Aluminum fencing is highly resistant to rust and corrosion, making it a durable choice for outdoor use. To clean aluminum fencing, use a mild detergent mixed with water and a soft brush or cloth. Avoid abrasive cleaners or steel wool, as these can scratch the surface of the aluminum.

While aluminum fencing is durable, it can still be prone to scratches, especially from abrasive materials or heavy impacts. To protect against scratches, avoid leaning heavy objects against the fence and trim any overhanging branches that could scratch the surface. Regular inspections are essential for identifying any signs of damage or corrosion early on. Inspect your aluminum fence regularly for loose or damaged components, such as loose screws or bent pickets, and make any necessary repairs promptly.
