Just wondering what you thought was the best method for cleaning a wooden fence prior to re-treating? The fence is 100% sound but has quite a heavy covering of green in places. I have a pressure washer available if necessary and there are plants to consider if detergents are used.

just paint over it. Seriously, I have done this in the past (proper fence stain obv). you can scrub it off, but it takes blinking ages. Not sure if pressure washer would damage the wood?

I would pressure hose carefully and then repaint. It won't take long to do the cleaning.

I pressure washed ours, let it dry fog a few days and then painted it.

Soda crystals?

I've used it to get moss off our drive.
