Many people prefer vinyl over other types of fence-building materials because it is long-lasting and practically maintenance-free. However, the elements and the winter weather can make your fence look dirty or somewhat unappealing. We’ll give you some fence-cleaning tips so you can get the most out of your vinyl fence.
For Cleaning Off Everyday Dirt
Cleaning off your vinyl fence when it simply has a thin layer of dirt or water spots on it is easy. All you have to do is get a garden hose with a brush attachment to go over the problem areas. If you don’t have a brush attachment, you can use a sponge or simply utilize a high-pressure hose.
Once the fence has been washed, you can either allow it to air-dry or use a towel to dry the vinyl.
For Cleaning Off Scuff Marks
If you have kids or live in a neighborhood with a lot of foot traffic, your vinyl fence might get a few scuff marks. Don’t worry, however, because you probably won’t have to replace that portion of the fence. Most of the time, you can get rid of the scuff marks by using a textured rag dipped in lacquer thinner to rub down the fence until the marks are gone. You should use protective goggles during this process.
For Cleaning Off Paint
If, for whatever reason, your fence has some paint on it, you can often use lacquer thinner for that as well. Put the lacquer thinner in a spray bottle, spray it onto the affected area, and wait for the paint to soften. Then, scrub it off.
This method does not always work for acrylic paints.
