One of the best things about vinyl siding is that it’s easy to care for. However, there are a few things you should do to ensure your vinyl siding remains in prime condition for many years.
Here are some cleaning tips from expert siding and roofing contractors Sprague Construction Roofing to help you get started:
1. Schedule Regular Cleaning – You only need to clean your vinyl siding once a year or so, and we recommend doing it at the end of winter. If using a power washer, hold it at eye level, not upward, so water is not driven behind your siding.
2. Start at the Bottom – Residential roofing and siding professionals recommend beginning at the bottom of the siding, working your way up and rinsing the cleaning solution as you go. You can use a soft cloth or soft-bristled brush with a long handle.
3. Trim Shrubs and Other Greenery – Shrubs, trees and other greenery growing close to your siding will mar the material over time, leaving stains and scratches that can’t be removed with simple cleaning. To prevent your landscaping from damaging your siding, trim and clip greenery as needed.
4. Keep Mold and Mildew at Bay – You can remove mold and mildew and limit their growth by mixing a solution of 70% water and 30% vinegar. Place the solution in a spray bottle or sprayer and apply to affected portions of your siding.
