This fence material is easy to clean and maintain. Aluminum is ideal for those who don’t want to clean their fences frequently. It’s one of the most durable and low-maintenance fencing options today. The dark colors of aluminum fence make dirt less noticeable. You usually don’t need to clean them but if you want to, a simple white vinegar cleaning solution should work great.
Both wooden fence and siding require staining and resealing for protection against moisture. This applies to different types of fences except for cedar. Cedar contains natural oils that make it resistant to insect infestation and rot. It’s one of the strongest woods offered today and also resists warping. However, you can still choose to stain it to improve its appearance.
It’s easier to clean vinyl since it withstands water and resists mold growth. However, you should take extra precautions if you’re considering power washing your fence. Improper use of this equipment can do more harm than good. Moreover, you can use a homemade cleaning solution to wipe your vinyl fence clean. Simply mix equal parts of white vinegar and water. Soak rags in the solution, scrub all sides of your fence and then wash with water.
