Guidelines to Help you Clean your Vinyl Siding Perfectly
No doubt the exteriors of your home can also do with some good care on a regular basis. The best thing is that maintaining a perfectly beautiful exterior is very much possible especially with the great summer weather. You can start by learning more on how to clean your vinyl siding. No doubt vinyl siding is one of those low-maintenance materials, but it attracts stains and dirt over time. Here are some tips to get you started in cleaning your vinyl siding.
A tried and tested way through which you can do-it-yourself when you want to get rid of stains and dirt from vinyl siding is through pressure cleaning. Pressure cleaning can be achieved perfectly using a pressure washer or your everyday garden hose that comes with a power spray nozzle. It would be best to inspect the siding to determine the amount of cleaning required; so be sure to do that before you power up that pressure washer. Walk around the compound looking for any tears and cracks on your vinyl. Check out these vinyl siding cleaning tips or read more siding maintenance tips.
You can easily get rid of stains and dirt from vinyl siding by adding vinyl safe soap cleanser on your garden sprayer or the pressure reservoir. You can also use bleaching solution for a more thorough and affordable cleanup, but you have to exercise lots of caution when doing so. Ensure you spray the siding with the soapy solution and after that rinse thoroughly to remove all dirt and also the cleaning solution. You can then complete the cleaning process using a towel to dry off the siding which allows for the removal of all remaining dirt and stains. If for whatever reasons you cannot use a pressure washer, a rag and bucket method would also do. You might want to plan accordingly if you are to use the bucket and rag method as it is time-consuming.
It is also worth mentioning that vinyl siding is best cleaned during sunset. While the summer sun is great for such DIY projects, no doubt having the hot summer sun on your wet vinyl can be problematic as it can melt or warp. Therefore, start your cleaning process as the sun starts to go down so you can have enough time to allow for drying. And another quick tip especially when you have a large area to cover and you are all alone. Cleaning your vinyl siding once a month would suffice for a clean and aesthetically appealing exterior.
