Vinyl fencing is an excellent choice for homeowners who want to enjoy a quality fence that will last a long time while requiring little maintenance. It is very easy to keep your vinyl fence looking great with only minimal care, as the composition of vinyl resists the effects of sun and weather and allows dirt and soil to be cleaned off with relative ease. Here is a guide to keeping your vinyl fence looking brand-new for years to come:
- Clean Your Vinyl Fence as Necessary. You don’t have to worry about insect infestation with a vinyl fence—in fact, the only thing you only need to remove on a regular basis is dirt, which can be accomplished with water and the occasional soapy sponge. Generally, a quick rinse with your garden hose will be enough to rinse off accumulated dust and dirt. Use an attachment on your hose to provide wider coverage or additional pressure in order to help rinse away more stubborn soil.
- Use Soap and a Sponge for a More Thorough Cleaning. If there are pet or plant stains on your fence, using a little soap and water to scrub the posts can renew their appearance. While vinyl is resistant to discoloration, it’s always a good idea to clean stains as soon as you notice them, since certain materials may become slightly more difficult to remove if they’re allowed to “bake” on.
