Keep You Vindu Siding Clean

Posted on

If you have vinyl siding on your house, you probably want to make sure that you keep it nice and clean. That will make sure that your house looks good and presents a good first impression. Keeping it clean is pretty easy, and it's something that you can do on your own. 


There are several things that you are going to want to make sure that you have before you get started. One of those things is a power washer. You actually don't need to have a power washer, but it will make cleaning easier. If you don't have one, then you can rent one at an equipment rental store for a day or two so that you can get all the siding on your house nice and clean. You are also going to want to make sure that you have a cleaning solution. When it comes to cleaning solutions, you can make your own or you can buy a premade solution. 

Cleaning Solution

If you want to make a cleaning solution, you can make it from vinegar and water, with the primary ingredient being water. The vinegar will help clean off the all the dirt and grime and will make your house look good. If you have a lot of dirt on the side of your house, you can add in some laundry detergent or dish soap as well. That soap will help cut the dirt and grime, especially if you have something that could be oily on your siding. You can also use oxygen bleach mixed with water. You don't want to use chlorine bleach because that can actually damage the vinyl. Also avoid things like acetone or furniture polish. 


The way that you go about cleaning your vinyl siding depends on whether or not you are using a power washer or not. If you are going to use a power washer, you are going to want to start at the top so that the dirt will just wash down the dirty parts. However, if you end up having to clean the siding by hand, you want to start at the bottom and work up. That will keep the clean areas from streaking.
