Vinyl Fence Cleaning


What do the painting pros out there use?

Fence is white PVC and has some biological growth on it from age (i.e. mildew and green'ish algae).

The fence is about 8 years old and was never cleaned.

It is at the entrance to the neighborhood and we will need to use something that is dog/cat compliant as well as safe for vegetation.

We have to bring in water via tank as there are no hoses available.

Thanks guys!!!

Get a spray bottle and mix 1 part household bleach with 5 parts water. Spray it on the fence and by the next day you'll have a white fence again!

Good luck!

You can get a product called Mold Armor at home depot in gallon containers for about $7.00 and change,spray foilage with water before use and after so no harm is done, use a pump up sprayer to apply product,rinse with water and your done,excellent product.

If you have any grease or rub marks from lawncare,I would recommend some wetted very fine sand paper.
Mine use to get rubbing from the wheels of the mower when I was too lazy to weedwack.

She is a great little dog, fortunately, does NOT snore
