FencesKeep Your Fencing Looking Fresh
Fence cleaning may not cross your mind because they are an outdoor surface that you don’t “use” like your deck, patio, driveway or walkway, but they still serve a purpose. They define your outdoor living space and property and keep your kids and pets in the yard (or your neighbors out). They, like all your outdoor surface, need regular maintenance to stay looking great.
But why do you need to clean and seal your grey and weathering fence if it’s just a border around your property? Here’s why:
Wood fences withstand a lot of elements being outside. It’s normal for mold, mildew and dirt to build up over time. All of that, plus the wood drying out from the sun’s harmful rays, can weaken the wood. Regular fence cleaning and sealing will make your fence last longer. It will keep the wood from drying out and breaking.Fences are part of your outdoor landscape. Unless they are completely covered by bushes and trees, you will lookout into your backyard and to your fence. Don’t you want it to look nice?
Wood inevitably needs to be deep cleaned. It is outside all year-round! For deep cleaning, it is best to have a professional pressure washing company clean your exterior surface. A professional has the experience to ensure that your structure isn’t damaged in the fence cleaning process.
At Renew Crew, we pride ourselves on making a huge visual difference on the property through the deep cleaning and protecting of all your outdoor surfaces. When preparing your house for sale, make sure not to only focus your efforts on the inside of the home. The outside is just as important, if not more. It is the first impression that people get of hopefully, their future home.
The normal pressure washer uses harsh chemicals to kill the mold and mildew on wood and then uses high-pressure wash to clean. At Renew Crew, we have a three-step process that is much better!
Instead of using harsh chemicals during fence cleaning, we use environmentally friendly foam to clean the wood. The foam is applied to all the wood surfaces and works its way into the wood, killing the mold and mildew and loosening all the dead wood fibers.
The foam doesn’t need too much time to work its magic. Once it is ready, we use a low-pressure wash to rinse everything away. In this step, the wood starts to look new again.
The last step in the process is protection. The normal pressure washing company stops at cleaning, Renew Crew doesn’t. Our proprietary polymers keeps the wood looking better longer by blocking the dirt and grime from working into the wood’s surface. It even blocks UV-rays.
Once your exterior wood surfaces are professionally cleaned, there are a few things that you can do to help your Renew Crew Clean look last. Periodically through the year, take a hose to the surfaces to wash off anything that is sitting on the wood. Pay special attention to the bottom of the fence that is closer to the ground. Dirt tends to bounce up onto the vertical surfaces. In the fall, sweep off the deck when leaves and other yard debris start to accumulate.
