Rust: If you want to keep rust from damaging the look and functionality then keep it clean. When dirt builds up on your fence this can make rust difficult to detect and while those dust particles seem small and insignificant, they can scratch your fence. If you’re not sure how to correctly use a pressure washer to rid your fence of dirt, then we suggest using warm soapy water and a microfiber cloth. Take the cloth sip it into the water and scrub away. Make sure to also get into those nooks and crannies using a small bristle brush, we recommend a grill cleaner because they are affordable and will get the job done. Once your iron fence is cleaned its time to apply a protective epoxy primer that contains zinc as this will defend the fence from corroding or rusting. Once you have applied the primer the next step I to paint your fence with a rust inhibitor. These paint will keep moisture from lading to rust, to act much like a raincoat for your fence. Remember that your fence has no defense from the outdoor elements and the chief enemy of a wrought iron fence is moisture.
