How to Properly Maintain a Wrought Iron Fence for Long-Lasting Results
For homeowners seeking to seamlessly enhance the appearance of their home while also increasing its security, installing a wrought iron fence is one of the greater options. With the proper maintenance routines practiced, wrought iron fences can be a long-lasting, durable addition to any yard.
Here are a few care tips for wrought iron fences that will help protect your fence from long-term damage and persists as an attractive home feature:
Take Time to Inspect – At least once a year, take the time to conduct a thorough inspection of your wrought iron fence. During this inspection, address small blemishes, cracks, and other forms of damage to avoid costly repairs in the future.
Clean Regularly – When you notice your wrought fence piling dirt and dust, clean it with warm, soapy water, give it a rinse, and allow it to air-dry.
Repair Rust – Some rust spots can be scrubbed away before they have the chance to penetrate–use a toothbrush or other small brushes to reach into the deep crevasses. If the rust cannot be cleaned, remove the rust with sandpaper or a wire brush to scrub off the rush.
Protect– Keeping bushes and vines away from your wrought iron fence can prevent the fence from the exposure of moisture and small scratches. Adding a coat of wax to your fence, or painting it with a rust inhibiting paint, can also protect your fence against rust.
