White vinyl fencing looks gorgeous on almost any property. It beautifully frames your house and makes it look neat and elegant.
It would be great to have this look forever, wouldn’t it?
However, no vinyl fencing can resist rain showers, mud and plain dirt during a long period of time. Sooner or later you will need to treat it with some nice wash to get the shiny white look back.
But don’t worry, cleaning your fence is super easy and we are going to tell you exactly how you can do it.
Examine your vinyl fencing
First things first.
Spend a couple of minutes carefully examining your fence from both sides to make sure you do not miss any stains that require special attention.
These stains might need some extra washing or even light bleaching for a shiny white color.
Cleaning Vinyl Fencing Step-by-step
Once you have marked the hard stains, you can proceed on to prepare your washing equipment.
Basically what you will need for this task is;
- dish soap
- cotton cloths or towels
- soft scrubbing pad
- garden hose with a sprinkler
If your fence does not cover a big area, then you might be good with just a single bucket of water and some dish soap.
But if you have a large perimeter to wash or if it is a vinyl gazebo or patio cover, then it is a good idea to start with using the garden hose. Water the fence from all sides with the hose.
The garden hose will probably have some water pressure to it, which will allow you to remove most of the dirt before proceeding with actual soap.
So wash the vinyl fencing carefully moving from top to bottom.
You can repeat this step if you feel like.
Next, you will need a bucket with lukewarm water mixed with some dish soap. Stir it well before applying.
Take your towels or cotton clothes, damp them with some liquid from your bucket and carefully scrub the fence. If there are no significant stains, you don’t need to push very hard and just gently apply some soap water to the fence.
When you are done, apply the garden hose water again to wash off all soap.
If there are still some hard stains like grass or mud, you can apply some light bleach.
Prepare another bucket of lukewarm water. Add some bleach in a proportion of 1 to 5. Mix it well and then apply some of the liquid with a towel or cotton cloth. Scrub it till the stain is gone.
This whole procedure should take no longer than 15-20 minutes.
Your vinyl fencing is white and shiny again, just like on the very first day of installation.
