The Benefits of Power Washing Your Fence


Think back to when your fence was built… It sure looked great before the weather, lawn maintenance, and pesky critters all took their toll on your once pristine fence! You might be wondering what you can do to bring it back to life. Luckily, all it takes is a pressure washer, some soft wash detergent, and a few hours of work to get any stained or algae covered fence back to looking new again!


How Did My Fence Get So Dirty?

To state the obvious, fences spend a lot of time outdoors! The average lifespan for vinyl and wood fencing is around 50 and 15 years respectively. The endless exposure to the elements leaves every type of fencing susceptible to mold and algae growth, weather staining, pollen buildup, animal droppings and many more natural occurrences that can leave your fence looking like it had better days. Not to mention the grass stains left from cutting and trimming the lawn along the property line. Over time, your fence begins to lose its curb appeal, leaving you with a big eye sore running through your yard.


Why Should I Power Wash My Fence?

Aside from being visually unappealing, a poorly maintained fence can result in permanent damage, drastically lowering its lifespan. Mold and algae growth can rot away protective stains from wood boards, leaving them defenseless against water damage. With today’s prices, replacing a fence can cost you thousands of dollars, if not more, so it is crucial to keep them well maintained against nature’s brutal forces.

Is It Safe To Power Wash A Wood Fence?

Yes! Wood fences that aren’t carefully maintained will show their age, but they can be restored using a pressure washer. We recommend using a soft washing cleaning process to safely clean the wood fence to avoid wood fiber damage. As always, it is advised to use  material appropriate tips to avoid damaging your fence.


What’s Next?

A house washing is a great way to get your home ready for summer, but why stop there? Dirty concrete, clogged gutters and algae covered decks are all areas of your property that can use some power washing love too!
