Method 1 of 4:
Cleaning the Fence

  1. 1
    Apply a wood or fence cleaner to the fence. Work from the bottom of the fence to the top, coating the entire fence in the cleaner. To get the solution behind tight areas, dip a brush into the solution and apply it between boards or tight corners.[1]
    • Read the cleaner''re using.
  2. 2
    Let the cleaner sit for 15-20 minutes. This will give the cleaner enough time to soak into the wood before you wash it off. If the cleaner''t own a pressure washer, rent one from a home improvement store. Choose a pressure washer rated at 2700 PSI or less, which is less likely to splinter the wood.

    Let the fence dry for at least 24 hours. The fence should dry completely before you apply stains or sealants. If it''t know what color to use, take a picture of your yard and ask advice from a home improvement store employee when you buy the stain.
  • Oil stains tend to penetrate the wood and keep fences in good condition.[12]
  • 2
    Test the stain on an inconspicuous section of the fence. Apply the wood stain to a small section of your fence using a bristle brush. Purchase a different wood stain if the color doesn''t what you expected it to look like.
    • If the shade is slightly darker than what you would prefer, apply the wood stain anyways. A stain''s instructions to determine how long you should let it set. 12-24 hours is usually sufficient. To help the stain last longer, apply a wood sealant over the stain after it has dried.[15]

    Method 4 of 4:
    Maintaining a Painted Fence

    1. 1
      Apply a paint stripper if it has been previously painted. Put on a pair of rubber gloves and spray or roll on a coat of paint stripper. Let the paint stripper sit for 3-24 hours, depending on the instructions, and scrub off the residue with a wet bristle brush.[16]
      • Wear a respirator and safety goggles while handling paint stripper.
    2. 2
      Protect any areas of the fence you don''t cleaned the fence in the past several days, wash it with a pressure washer before you paint it.[18]
    3. If your fence connects to your home, cover the wall around the fence in plastic sheeting as well.
  • 3
    Use a paint sprayer to coat the fence. Standing about 8–12 inches (20–30 cm) away from the fence, spray the fence in thin, even coats. After you''s instructions carefully to determine how long you should let it dry. After the fence dries, apply a coat of sealant over the paint to prevent it from chipping or fading over time.
