Only trust a Low-Pressure method for cleaning your siding
Did you know a pressure washer in untrained hands can cause irreversible damage? Many people think the higher the pressure the better. This is not true. Water can be forced behind your siding and cause rot, decay and mold growth. If the pressure is too strong to spray the top of your feet without pain, it is too much pressure. The cleaning power should not come from the pressure washer, but from the correct detergents to do the job right.

Vinyl Siding Maintanence
Vinyl siding is one of the most durable and cost effective materials made to protect your home from the elements. It can look great for many years with the apropriate care and maintenance. Do you remember the days of scraping the paint from the exterior just to place a new fresh coat? Thankfully most of us are past these types of maintenance. Now that we have materials such as vinyl siding, we take the term “maintenance free” for granted. Is their really any merit to the phrase? Perhaps low-maintenance is a more fitting description.
EPA Analysis on Vinyl Siding and Mold
Depending on where you live, your siding should be cleaned every 2 to 4 years. The more humid the climate, the more often it should be cleaned. Why? Vinyl siding tends to have mold rapidly grow on the surface, and it begins on the narrow underside of each run. One it gets a foothold, it overtakes one side, and then works it’s way around the home. It can actually work into the seams and begin to grow in the substrate of the home. When you have growth such as this, opening windows and doors allow the spores to enter through the air.
