Vinyl fences are stylish, contemporary fences that provide privacy and security around your home and yard. They are made of a nonporous material, resulting in easy maintenance. If someone vandalizes your fence with graffiti, you can remove it relatively easily.
Things You'll Need
- Water hose/pressure washer
- Goof Off-type cleaner
How to Remove Paint From a Vinyl Fence
Shoot the fence with a water hose or pressure washer. In many instances, this will remove the majority of the paint.
Mix one part bleach with five parts water.
Test the mixture on the vinyl. (Most vinyl fence colors will not be affected by the bleach, but you may want to check in an area that won't be noticeable before using on the painted area.) If it proves to be safe, move to Step 4. If not, proceed to Step 5.
Wipe the fence with the bleach solution using a towel. This should wipe away the paint. If you are still able to see the paint, move on to Step 5.
Place Goof Off (or a similar type of cleaner) on a clean towel and wipe the area where you can still see the paint. This should eliminate any traces of paint.
