Now that you’ve added an aluminum fence to your Maryland home, you need to know the best ways to keep it clean and attractive. This week we’re discussing aluminum fence maintenance. Let’s explore.
Basic Aluminum Fence Cleaning Tips
Your aluminum fence will become exposed to all of your gardening projects, from mowing the grass to pruning the perennials. To keep the fence clean from fertilizer, dirt, or chemicals simply spray it with the garden hose. Once the fence has been sufficiently soaked, air dry it or wipe with a soft, lint-free cloth.
If the dirt still does not come loose from the fence, use a sponge and clean the area with mild dish soap and water. Ensure that you rinse the fence quickly after so that the soap doesn’t collect or dry on the surface.
Cleaning Products to Avoid
Avoid using certain household cleaners that may contain abrasive agents or harsh chemicals. Steel wool and industrial cleaners can cause damage and discoloration to your beautiful fence which is why we don’t recommend using these.
Touching Up the Fence
Aluminum fences are covered with a powder coat finish which means that they won’t easily scratch or chip. In the event that you do notice a blemish, it can be corrected with an exterior touch-up paint specified for aluminum fences.
