Spring is the perfect time to do home repairs, replacements and cleaning.  There may be damage or breaks that occurred during winter, and the safest way to fix them is to wait for spring. This includes maintaining your fencing.

Regular maintenance keeps your fences looking good and helps them last longer. Here are some tips to help you extend the lifespan of your fence.

How to Maintain Your Fence

  1. Clean the fence by using mild dish soap detergent and warm water to remove soiled spots. 

  2. Applying wax coating prevents any rusting problems. During the wet season, use a tarp to cover the fence. 

  3. You can also paint your gate and fence during spring. Painting your fence reduces the chance of rust development. 

  4. Check for possible damaged spots and get them fixed as soon as possible.

  5. Use a steel wool scrubbing pad or a piece of sandpaper to scrub away any rust. If your fence is extremely rusted, then you might need to replace it.
