It’s easy to maintain the great look of your Vinyl, Resalite, Aluminum or Steel Railing as well as Lattice and Decorative Screen Panels.

We recommend checking and cleaning your railing 1-2 times per year. Simply spray the dirt off with your standard garden hose. For more stubborn dirt or stain removal, you can wash your railing with a solution of warm water and mild non-abrasive detergent and rinse to remove all residues. The railing should be cleaned using a soft cloth or sponge. For more difficult stains, Simple Green, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, mineral spirits, trichloroethylene, CLR or vinegar work well.

If you live in coastal areas (beach front), or areas where salts and pollutants are more prevalent (industrial areas), then the railings should be cleaned more frequently. We recommend cleaning your railing every 3 months. Wash with a mild, non-abrasive soap and water, using a sponge to reduce accumulations of salt and dirt. Always rinse with fresh water after cleaning, to remove any soap residue.
