HOW TO CLEAN A WOOD FENCE
Wood fencing tends to be aesthetically pleasing, unless you've put off cleaning it for too long. Over time, a wood fence can become home to algae, mildew and mold growth, and eventually begin rotting.
Cleaning a wooden fence with household bleach, as many people do, can cause damage and discoloration if done incorrectly. Chlorine bleach runoff can also harm surrounding plants, patios and other surfaces.
Simple Green Oxy Solve Deck and Fence Cleaner is ideal for both manual and pressure washing to lift and remove dirt and grime from fencing. The fast-acting foaming formula eliminates tough stains from mold and mildew, tree sap, pollen, scuff marks, oxidation, weathering and more. It utilizes the power of peroxide to provide high-performance cleaning without abrasive chemicals.
Wood fences can improve the look of your yard for many years, depending on the type of wood you use and the climate you live in. Regular cleaning and maintenance with a stain or sealer can help both preserve the classic look and prolong the life of your fence.
Use the directions below to deep clean your fence at least once a year.
Pressure Washing Directions
If your prefer cleaning with a pressure washer, it's best to do it under cooler, non-windy conditions, when the surface you're cleaning is not in direct sunlight. This ensures the cleaner does not dry on your surface before rinsing, and the spray doesn't blow back in your face.
