The Ease of Cleaning Vinyl Fencing

When surrounding a piece of property with a fence, no matter what reason, more and more business owners and homeowners are choosing vinyl fencing materials. Having a fence made out of vinyl is practical, decorative and affordable. However, while a vinyl fence may not require much maintenance, a person may want to take up cleaning vinyl fencing material from time to time.

As it relates to maintenance, especially keeping a vinyl fence clean, the ease of this type of job is what makes this material so beneficial to be used on a business property or around a home. When cleaning a vinyl fence, typically a garden hose with some sort of standard sprayer nozzle will be helpful in removing any of the loose debris that is on the fence. From there, a simple soap solution and a rag, or sometimes a brush will be all that is needed to ensure that the vinyl fence is properly cleaned.

There are times where there are more stubborn spots that will stand up to a general cleaning. In these instances, it’s typically best to use a bleach water combination on the spots in order to properly remove them. It is a good idea to test out a few spots before doing the entire fence as too heavy of a bleach concentration can cause spotting on the vinyl fence.

There are those times where things like tree sap or tar can get on a vinyl fence and getting it off with a brush or even a water/bleach solution doesn’t work. In these situations, a soft plastic scraper can be used to chip away these spots. It’s always good to use a plastic utensil rather than metal so that damage to the vinyl material can be avoided.

Cleaning a polyvinyl fence can be extremely easy. It doesn’t take much time and it should only have to be done around once a year. The great thing is that doing this will keep a vinyl fence looking sharp for many years to come. It’s an excellent way to keep the fence looking aesthetically pleasing and protecting the investment a business owner or homeowner has made in vinyl fencing materials.
