Does your home have vinyl siding? Have you come to realize it could benefit from a good cleaning? Are you ready to proceed, but unsure of how to do so?
There are things you should absolutely do when cleaning vinyl siding, as well as common mishaps to avoid at all costs. Here are a few tips that will put you on track to completing a job you’ll be proud of:
· Use the right tools. For example, a soft bristle scrub brush is the perfect tool for knocking debris loose and getting your siding as clean as possible. However, if you choose something too abrasive, it can scratch your siding and leave it looking worse for the wear.
· Use a ladder. Don’t make the mistake of assuming you can complete the job without the use of a ladder. While this may be possible on a one-story home, if you have a two-story property you absolutely need an extension ladder.
· Work in small spaces. Not only does this allow you to better see your progress, but it also helps keep you in a good place from a mental perspective. Also, don’t be shy about cleaning one section at a time. You don’t have to do it all in the same day.
· Use the right cleaner. For example, you may be able to get your siding clean with nothing more than water and a pressure washer. If that doesn’t work for you, head to your local home improvement store for a more powerful solution.
You can clean your vinyl siding at any time of the year, but it makes the most sense to tackle this project during the summer months. Are you ready to get started?
