In addition to adding a boost to your yard’s security and bringing an elegant touch to your home, installing a wrought iron fence has many benefits. As a durable, customizable option, it’s no wonder so many are considering iron fences for their homes. At Fence Masters, Inc., we want you to get the most out of your wrought iron fence, which is why we have put together a guide to caring for your fence. Check out these maintenance tips, then call our experienced Chicago Heights fence contractors for repair or installation of your wrought iron fence.

Regular Cleaning

To keep your wrought iron fence looking great for years to come, regular cleaning is highly recommended. Washing with soap and water, fully rinsing soap residue, and allowing the fence to completely air dry helps to preserve your fence’s paint job and beautiful ironwork that you picked specifically for your home. We suggest taking the time every six months to give your fence a nice, detailed cleaning, as this will not only clean the surface but also inspect your fence damage and rust.

Fight Rust

Moisture and metal, unfortunately, do not go hand-in-hand, meaning you always run the risk of developing rust on your wrought iron fence. Luckily, there are a number of protective and preventative measures you can take to fight off the rust. Applying metal-grade wax, especially focusing on areas that frequently come in contact with moisture from a sprinkler system and vegetation, to your fence can help prevent rust from developing in the first place. If you do discover that rust is beginning to form on your fence, you can either remove the old paint that has been rusted, or you can contact Fence Masters, Inc. to repair the spot. 

Keeping up Proper Maintenance

When your wrought iron fence is shiny and brand new, it can be easy to remember to keep up with proper maintenance. Once you’ve had your fence for a few years, though, cleaning, checking for rust and imperfections, and keeping up with greasing hinges on your gate can easily slip your mind. Your fence is an investment, though, and should be treated like one. Making a habit out of casually looking over your fence while out in the yard and setting cleaning or painting reminders is a great way to keep on top of any issues that may develop.
