Man Using Pressure Washer — Power Wash in Walnut Creek, CA

If your Bay Area fence has lost its luster and shine, you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to replace it. You can easily refurbish the fence and get it back to looking like new with just a few simple steps. Wooden fences start to collect grime and lose their coating after a few years. Once the protective coating deteriorates, the wood underneath ages, and the fence begins to appear gray and dirty. The drought may have you steering clear of pressure washing, but if you find a pressure washing company with water recovery you don’t have to wait until reservoirs are full again to get your fence, home, and driveway cleaned.

If you’re in a “DIY” mood, you can rent pressure washers from a local Bay Area pressure washing company. Look for a washer with a pressure rating between 1500-2000 PSI. Anything higher will be too powerful for a fence and could lead to irreparable damage to the wood. Rent both a 15-degree and 25-degree washer tip to get the most effective pressure stream. As you get used to using the 25-degree tip, you can switch to the 15, if you need more strength.

When you begin power washing, start off about 18 inches away from the fence, and move in as needed to wash more resistant spots. You’ll see the gray surface of the wood fall away, revealing the fresh wood underneath. Once the fence is washed, wait 24 hours (or until the fence is completely dry) before gluing any broken pieces, and coat the wood with a semitransparent oil stain.
