If you’re wondering how to keep your new fencing in the best condition, our 5 Top Tips for Cleaning your Fencing will give you the confidence with how to treat your fencing properly.
Prepare & Clean
Wood fencing situated in shaded or damp conditions should be pre-treated with an appropriate wood preserver during the clean preparation stage. This protects your fencing from the development of mould, algae, fungi or mildew that can eventually result in wood rot. Beforehand, your fence surfaces should be dry and free from any dirt such as mildew and algae. A fast effective way to do this is with an appropriate fungicidal wash and power washer.
Re-treat with Preservative
Once your fence is treated with a fungicidal wash, fence panels and posts can be re-treated with a clear or coloured solution wood preservative, exterior wood oil or decking oil, or a combination. Once the fence stains have been treated, hose them down with a power washer.
Don’t forget to take care of your New Fence
New Fence Panels
To protect your new fence panels from mould, algae and other dirt elements, you should coat your new fence with a good quality wood preservative. Once the wood preservative has fully dried, the process of applying an exterior wood oil or decking oil is required for additional protection.
Old Fence Panels
It is important to treat older fence panels with a Mould or Mildew cleaner. If the panels have largely built-up surfaces of mould or algae, the most effective way to clean it is with a stiff brush, broom or scraper before you treat it. Their fence treatment should include a coating of a suitable fungicidal wash or mould and mildew cleaner solution.
