Cleaning an aluminum fence is an easy task, aluminum is a material very simple to clean. By only using water you can keep your aluminum fences in optimal condition. You could enjoy your aluminum fences and gates looking brand new for many years by only using water. The more practical way is using a garden hose. Use the hose to wet your aluminum fences and gates with water. Make sure you start from the top part, this way the cleaning will be easier and faster as well. For difficult stains, you may need to scrub, use a microfiber cloth. If you prefer a more eco-friendly option avoid the hose, in that case, you will need a bucket, water, and microfiber cloth. Simply pour some water into the bucket and wet the cloth on it, then wipe down each picket or profile, make sure you do it top to bottom.
2. Periodical check.
As you probably do with any of your home appliances, it is a good idea to inspect your aluminum fences regularly. It does not have to be that often, but consistently. What you should look for is any loose profile, broken hardware, or anything that starts to be uneven.
