Refurbishing Wooden Fences with High Pressure Washing

Fence care with high pressure washers Australia

Our fences can be a point of pride for many of us. Unfortunately if you live in Brisbane, the whether is quite likely to damage both your fence and pride. Almost anywhere in Australia, wooden fences start collecting grime and the like after a few years.

After the protective outer layer erodes, the wood underneath begins to age, starting to look grimey, grey and anything but great. Luckily, there is a solution… high pressure washing.

If you’re up for it, you can ask about the right high pressure washer for the job here. What you should look for in basic terms is a machine with between 1500 and 2000 PSI. You may be tempted to go with a higher pressure rating but you’ll risk damaging the fence.

You’ll also do well to get yourself both a 15 degree and 25 degree nozzle for the best fence washing stream. You can periodically switch to the more powerful 15 degree tip while you get used to the 25 degree one.

When washing your fence, start spraying from about 45 centimeters from the fence (from nozzle to fence), and move closer when you are spraying a particlularly stubborn stain. After that, cue the smug face as the grey surface of the wood comes off, revealing the fresh wood underneath and asserting your fence as the best in the neighbourhood!

Once the fence is washed, you can wait 24 hours (or just till the fence is dry) to glue any broken bits back together, and coat the wood in transparent oil stain for more durability.
