Annual fence maintenance helps to expand the lifespan of any fencing material. For proper maintenance, it all depends on the type of fence you own. A wood fence needs staining every 2-3 years to preserve the natural look of the wood, and the overall function of the fence. Here are some tips to help you understand how to clean a fence, and how often you should clean your fence.
Wood Fence Cleaning
A wood fence is vulnerable to the sun because it does not have exterior shell protection. Most wood fences are treated with exterior spray before being sold, but the initial treatments usually wear out within a few months to a year of owning the fence. Fortunately, a pressure washer can help to remove the sun damage that can occur before the fence can be treated with correct UV polymer.
Start cleaning a wood fence by spraying it in sections and using a gentle scrub brush with soap to remove dirt and other things that may be embedded in the wood. After the fence is cleaned, wait for it to dry for at least 48 hours prior to painting or staining the wood fence.

Vinyl Fence Cleaning
Pressure washing a vinyl fence is a convenient way to keep your white fence looking clean all year long. Vinyl fencing is popular with many homeowners because it is extremely weather-resistant as it cannot rot and crack. However, a vinyl fence does have one frustration; it is pure white, so it will show dirt stains, grass stains, and water stains fairly quickly.
Clean a vinyl fence with a power washer and correct cleaning solutions to remove the buildup of dirt and water stains. Failure to use the right cleaning solution could cause damage to the integrity of the fence and the surrounding landscaping.
