Taking Care of Your Fence: A Guide

Fences are considered an essential part of your home especially if you have kids and pets spending most of their time in the yard. It also guarantees security whilst being a great landscaping decor for your property. To maximize the lifespan of your fence, it is important to take note of the proper ways of maintaining it. In this post, we’ll take a look at how it should be done.

Taking Care of Your Fence

Remember that cleaning and keeping your fence’s original form may vary depending on its type and when it is installed properly, it won’t require a whole lot of maintenance. Here’s a guide you can follow for each:

Vinyl Fence Maintenance

This is among the most popular styles because it’s known to be low-maintenance while withstanding age and the elements. This material doesn’t warp and its color doesn’t fade despite prolonged sunlight exposure. Moreover, because vinyl is less rigid than wood, you won’t also have to worry about snapping given the climate. This type only needs occasional cleaning with the use of basic household items. 

Ornamental Aluminum Fence Maintenance

It is worth noting that this material does not always need a repaint and does not rust. However, scratches, peeling, and scrapes are still possible to appear. These are the primary reasons why keeping your coats intact is essential. If you want to preserve this beauty and aesthetic, you’ll want to do all that you can to prevent any rust or corrosion issues from ever occurring.

Chain Link Fence Maintenance


Chains are susceptible to wear and tear, dirt and rust. Should you see any of these, a simple cleaning would already suffice. For light debris or dirt, a quick hose down is all you’ll need. You can also use soapy dishwater in an outdoor pump sprayer for tougher stains and let the solution sit on the fence for at least ten minutes before rinsing it off.
