How to clean and seal your fence:

  • Use a mild cleaning solution to spray the bamboo.
  • Let it soak for at least 15 minutes.
  • Use a nylon bristle brush to scrub the surface. Wipe off any residue with a towel.
  • Use a power washer or hose to rinse the bamboo.
  • Allow bamboo to dry completely for 2 days.
  • First coat should be weather-protectant that contains fungicides and UV-inhibitors. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. These guidelines are available:
  • If rain is expected in 48 hours or heavy dew is present, do not apply below 50 degrees
  • Mix well before you apply the first coat to your bamboo panel.
  • While the sealant is drying, avoid high levels of moisture.
  • To speed up drying time, scrape the TWP(r-coated) surface to remove entrapped solvents.
  • Two coats will give you the best finish.
  • Allow at least 3 days for the first coat of paint to dry completely.
  • For best results, scrub off the first coat of sealant using a bristle brush before applying the second coat.

Continued maintenance after installation:

First year maintenance: After 12 months, clean and seal your fence.

Regular maintenance: Keep your fence clean, particularly in areas where there is a lot of shade or water. Trim the fence’s terrain.

Future maintenance: Keep your fence clean and seal it every 2 to 3 years or as often as you need depending on the local climate. Follow the steps.

How Often Do I Need to Clean and Seal my Fence?

It is recommended that you seal your fence before installation, and then every 2-3 years thereafter (see instructions). There is no one-size-fits all solution. For best results, it is a good idea to apply a sealant every year depending on where you live.

How long will my bamboo fence last?

Bamboo, like all outdoor wood products can be susceptible to surface mold, cracking, and discoloration. These superficial changes are easily remedied (see instructions below) and won’t affect your bamboo’s structural integrity.

How do I clean my bamboo fencing?

Your bamboo fencing will show a positive effect immediately upon cleaning it. Your bamboo will look cleaner and brighter if you remove the dust and grime. It all depends on the climate in your area, where your fencing is located, and what type of sealant you use on your bamboo.

What materials should I use to clean the fencing?

Bamboo fencing can be easily cleaned with materials you may already have at hand. A homemade solution can be made using water and bleach. You can also buy a safe and effective wood cleaner at your local hardware store. Both methods will remove dirt and grime off your Bamboo panel.

How about cleaning small areas?

It’s okay to spot-clean your fence when you are too busy or if you notice small messes. You don’t need to bring expensive equipment or cleaning supplies. Instead, spot-clean areas that are prone to dirt, debris, and stains. For a gentler, more effective cleaner, you can use water and mild detergent. It takes just a few seconds to mix.
