HOW TO CLEAN HOUSE SIDING
Homeowners who love the look of their house siding understand that regular maintenance is key to keeping it looking great and extending its lifespan. Blazing heat, snowy winters and all the elements in between can wreak havoc on home siding, resulting in a weathered, dingy look if it's not properly cleaned.
The accumulation of unsightly dirt, pollen, pollution and more can go a long way toward diminishing your home siding's overall appeal. If your siding even looks like it may need a new coat of paint, you may be pleasantly surprised by the rejuvenating effect of a good cleaning, with a cleaning product and technique that won't damage the material of your siding.
Simple Green Oxy Solve Total Outdoor Cleaner is great for safely cleaning home siding. It lifts dirt and stains from mold, mildew, moss, and algae from outdoor surfaces such as wood, plastic, concrete and more. The fast-acting cleaner uses peroxide to brighten and renew surfaces without bleach.
To keep your wood, vinyl or aluminum siding in top form, you should follow the basic maintenance steps outlined below about once a year. Follow these simple cleaning steps to remove dirt, grime, and stains from algae, mold, and mildew, and keep the best look and longest lifespan for your siding.
When in doubt about a surface, always spot test first.
PRESSURE WASHER / POWER WASHER APPLICATION
Be sure to check your equipment warranty beforehand. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendation on proper cleaning practices.
Use caution when cleaning around openings like windows, doors, lighting, and plumbing connections.
Before cleaning: Protect nearby plants and grass by rinsing them with water before and after pressure washing.
Follow the Before Cleaning information above.
[Note: Simple Green Oxy Solve Total Outdoor Cleaner is the ideal direct-release formula for this job, but if you cannot obtain it, Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner is safe for your pressure washer and works great, too.]
