The time for spring cleaning has now arrived, but have you thought about both the inside and outside of your home? If not, you might want to pay some attention to your garden fence – and there’s a few good reasons why.
Here, we explore the importance of keeping your fence clean and how to go about this to ensure you’re prepared for spring.
Why does your fence need cleaning?
During the winter months, heavy rain and additional moisture can cause problems for your fence. Not only in the way of looks, but the quality and structural integrity of your fence can be weakened too.
Have a look outside when you get the chance – can you see a yellow, green or blackish growth? If so, this could be a result of mildew, mould or algae, so you’ll want to take action. Though moisture is considered to be the main cause behind this, organic growths are often accelerated in the absence of adequate sunlight, which is common during winter.
While mould is very unsightly and mainly a cosmetic issue, it can, over time, reduce the life expectancy of your fence.
