South Africa has a high crime rate and it would be amiss of any homeowner not to take the right precautionary measures. A security fence is a great security measure to install in your home; it makes it difficult for intruder to trespass. As effective as a security fence may be, you need to maintain it properly so that it may continue to protect you and your loved ones.
If your fence is damaged, it will be easier for burglars to get onto your premises. We have put together 3 tips to help you make sure that your security fence is always in the right condition.
1. Make sure that your fence is made from quality materials:
The best way to ensure that your fence doesn’t give you any problems in the long run, make sure that it is manufactured from quality materials. Hire a specialist company to install your fence for you; a specialist company will help you with all aspects of installation and ensure that your fence lasts a long time.
2. Remove the rust:
Rust breaks down the basic structure of your security fence, rendering it ineffective as a security solution. If your security fence has rust, you can remove it using a wire brush. If the rust runs to deep, you can use rough sandpaper to sand as much of it as you can, then you will need steel wool, paraffin, gloves and a damp cloth. Make sure that you wear your gloves as the paraffin can damage the skin on your hands. Apply a drop of paraffin onto the steel wool and sand down your fence with the steel wool. Once you have sanded down your fence with the steel wool and paraffin, wipe it down with the damp cloth.
3. Coat your fence:
If you want your fence to always look brand new and shiny, coat it. You can use liquid car wash to coat your fence. Apply a little bit of the liquid car-wash on to a non-abrasive cloth and coat your fence, leave it overnight. Use a clean cloth to buff your fence in a circular motion.
