Your siding is one of the most prominent parts of your home, which is why it’s important to ensure that it’s clean all season long. With the warmer months coming around, it’s high time to have your siding cleaned after all the dust, dirt and debris that it has accumulated over time. Granted, vinyl siding is a low-maintenance material, but it still requires cleaning for it to look pristine and perform at its best.
You can mix 70% water and 30% white vinegar to create a safe and natural cleaning solution to get rid of mold and mildew stains. More importantly, it’s better to use the cleaning solution prescribed by your siding manufacturer so that you don’t damage the siding material and run the risk of voiding your warranty.
If you’re worried about your homemade cleaning solution harming your siding and landscaping, your siding replacement contractor recommends using a cleaning solution with one gallon of water mixed with oxidized bleach in a bucket. The oxygen bleach solution will help clean your siding without harming the greens on your landscaping.
Most manufacturers would recommend against using pressure washers for cleaning your siding. While pressure washers have the power to remove hard dirt and debris from your siding, it can also damage it due to the force applied to it. It might look like a straightforward process, but it is actually difficult to do so since it delivers a powerful stream of water. Make sure that a professional cleaner handles a pressure washer since the pros know how to adjust the settings of a pressure washer so that it’s safe for use.
