Maintaining Your Vinyl Fence

6-121013-bkst-1575One of the benefits of installing a vinyl fence is the fact that it is considerably lower maintenance than wood fences. However, a vinyl fence still needs to be cleaned from time to time, and if you’re thinking it’s time to clean your fence, here are some tips to make it an easy, quick job!

General Cleaning

Vinyl is extremely easy to clean, and if you’re just looking to shine it up and make it look like new again, all you need is a hose with a sprayer, some dishsoap and water in a bucket, and a car-washing sponge.

Spray off the fence first, as this will likely remove most of the dirt and debris that might be clinging to it, and it will also make scrubbing those stubborn areas a little easier.

Starting from the bottom of the fence, use the soapy sponge to wash the fence in the same way you’d wash a car. If you find a stubborn spot, give it a little more elbow grease, but for the most part a quick wipe is all you’ll need.

When you’re done, rinse off the fence from the top down, and you should have a vinyl fence that looks brand new.


Once in a while, your vinyl fence might pick up stains, especially grass or stubborn dirt. If you’ve got a stain that’s not coming clean with a little bit of wiping, you may need to grab a bleach and water mixture and give it a good scrubbing.

As before, work from the bottom of the stain toward the top, and when you’re done, rinse from the top down. Don’t use an abrasive scrubber, though; as this will scratch your vinyl fence.

If your vinyl fence is looking worn out beyond what a cleaning can do or if you’re just looking for a new style, check with the professionals at Elite Fence in Columbus, OH, to see what kind of new vinyl fence you can get for your yard.
