Is vinyl fencing the best choice for your home?

Vinyl fences are low-maintenance. We’re talking sweatpants, hair tied, chillin’ with no makeup on kind of low-maintenance. Vinyl can mimic wood, but unlike wood, you don’t have to deal with the hassles of staining or painting vinyl. This form of fence is certainly a great choice for homeowners who want the advantages of a fence but don’t want the responsibilities of maintaining it. Vinyl fences may be low-maintenance, but they do require a yearly cleaning.

Why It Needs to be Cleaned

Your fence is a victim of its environment. Rain, snow, sleet, humidity and sun can take its toll on your fence all year round. If you’ve started to notice that your fence is turning yellow or green, it could be a result of algae growing over time. This problem is especially prevalent during the hot Maryland summers.

How Often Should it Be Cleaned

Your fence will most likely require a thorough cleaning once a year. It should take you most of the afternoon, and you won’t have to worry about it for another 364 days.

How to Do it

If you have a power washer, then this method will serve as an effective way to clean your fence. If you don’t have one, you’ll just need a garden hose, a large bucket, and soap. You can purchase a vinyl cleaning solution or you can make your own.

You do NOT have to scrub every inch of the fence, only the parts that have become dirty or discolored. Rinse off both the soap and residue you’ve removed with your garden hose and repeat this process until the entire fence is spick and span.
