How to Clean A Vinyl Fence

How to Clean A Vinyl Fence

Well-reputed for both its stability and ease of maintenance, vinyl fences are an incredibly popular option for modern homeowners. Unlike wood, which can easily break, warp or become discolored, vinyl is incredibly durable and can last significantly longer.

But even though vinyl is designed to require almost no maintenance, there are still a few things you can do to ensure that your fence always looks its best. Vinyl fencing is surprisingly easy to clean, and regular cleaning can help keep it looking like new.

The Supplies You Need

While getting dirt and debris out of the tiny spaces in a wooden fence often requires a pressure washer and may even require a sander and some new finish, cleaning your vinyl fence only requires a few things that you should already have around the house:
  • Garden hose
  • Bucket
  • Rag
  • Ordinary dish soap
You can use as little or as much soap as you’d like, and you will find that this is all you need to restore the original beauty of your fence.

The Process for Cleaning Vinyl Fencing

With your materials gathered, simply add some soap to your bucket of water to make the solution as weak or as strong as you would like. Now soak your rag or washcloth and wring it out a bit. Using just the rag or sponge, wipe the fence to gently remove dirt and other debris. You will find that very few substances are capable of sticking to vinyl, but even in these cases, they can typically be removed with gentle scrubbing. Once you have wiped down your entire fence, there is only one step left to perform. Turn on your garden hose and take the time to thoroughly rinse off any remaining soap so you are not creating a film that makes it easier for debris to stick to your vinyl.
