3 Aluminum Fence Maintenance Tips, Nicholasville, Kentucky

An aluminum fence is a great addition to any home or commercial space. They’re elegant, long-lasting, cost-effective, and most require very little maintenance. However, you will want to practice a few chores to keep it looking great and functioning well. Keep the following tips in mind if your aluminum fence needs some attention.

Ways to Care for Your Aluminum Fence

1. Wash Regularly

Because aluminum is nonporous, it’s not likely to collect much grime, buildup, or growth. Some will settle on the surface, however, and can be easily cleaned off with a garden hose. Simply rinse your fence, making sure to address the seams around connecting pieces where dirt may gather. For finer cleanings, use a wet cloth dipped in water and leave it to air dry. Doing this every few weeks will keep your aluminum fence looking great.

2. Pay Attention to the Gate

Check it every few months to ensure it’s held secure to the post and oil the hinges. Check screws to be sure they’re all tightened and reinforce the holding post if it’s slightly loose. Also, keep children off the gate and never lean anything against it.

3. Be Careful of Cleaners

If you decide to use a cleaner to remove materials stuck to your aluminum fence, avoid household products and other harsh chemicals. Acids and industrial cleaners may damage the surface or erode paint. Instead, use something simple and organic. Warm water and baking soda are usually enough to tackle the job, and if you need more power, rent a pressure washer to wash stubborn debris away.
