How to Maintain Your Ornamental Steel Fence

Ornamental steel fences are also known as the current generation of classic wrought iron fences, though they are modernized for resilience. Though our ornamental steel fences are coated with an electrostatically applied powder to retain durability and have long-lasting performance, they still need proper maintenance and care after their installation to maintain their curb appeal for years to come. Hercules Fence DC can guide you through the proper maintenance of your ornamental steel fence.

How to Maintain Your Ornamental Steel Fence

Today, we’ll guide you through the proper maintenance of your ornamental steel fence.

Clean Regularly to Protect from Environmental Exposure

You’ll want to clean your ornamental steel fence regularly to protect against environmental exposure through temperature changes, winter snowstorms, and humid summers. By seasonally cleaning your ornamental steel fence, you can preserve the unique features and colors you have selected for years to come. You can hire a professional power washing company to lightly clean the surface of your ornamental steel fence or take a soapy sponge with a bucket of hot water to each steel post. Afterward, wipe clean with a microfiber cloth or let air dry for optimal results.

Prevent and Fight Against Rust

You can apply a metal-grade wax to each individual steel post to protect and fight against rust before it develops. Focus on applying the metal-grade wax to areas exposed to rainfall, soil that is overly saturated with water, or areas of the fence that may come in contact with sprinkler water. By doing so, you can potentially ensure that your ornamental steel fence doesn’t begin to rust. If you’ve had your ornamental steel fence installed for a few years and notice that rust has developed, Hercules Fence DC can consult with you for a repair.

Cut Back Vegetation Overgrowth Near Your Fence

Vegetation, weeds, and plant overgrowth close to your ornamental steel fence can also be problematic when maintaining your ornamental steel fence. For the best long-term maintenance of your ornamental steel fence, ensure that all vegetation overgrowth is consistently tended to. You’ll also want to cut any vines off that have grown up your ornamental steel fence to protect against rust or discoloration along your fence posts.
