How to clean and maintain your wooden fence

Before you start to think about cleaning your fence, it is important to follow these steps:

- Remove any hazards such as plants, animals and anything else that may provide an obstacle

- Close doors and windows if they are nearby to the area in which you are cleaning.

- Select the correct spray tip and accessories for the job required. Avoid using too much pressure.

- Make sure that you are aware that by cleaning the fence with the pressure washer you will experience water runoff.

Step 1: Soap
Before using your pressure washer, to maximise the results you need to start by washing the fence with soap.

This will help to remove any bird poo, green moss, mould or any other stains that may have formed.

Be aware that to avoid the soap water dripping on to your plants it is important to spray them down first. Work in sections applying the soap and allowing it to dry for 5-10 minutes to give it time to work.

The rotating scrub brush will particularly help to remove any tough stains.

Step 2: Pressure Wash
Use a low to medium spray when washing off the soap.

Spray in the same directions to get a smooth result working with the grain of the wood. Keep the soap wet to avoid any streaks or patches.

Step 3: Sealant
Leave your fence to dry for 48 hours so it has been fully absorbed. Once the fence is fully dry you can paint or seal it to protect it from the elements.

After the fence is dry it will look as good as new. This job is only required annually and you wont need to paint or seal  it every time.
