Maintaining vinyl and aluminum siding is relatively easy. Simply wash it once a year with a mild soap solution. Remember that harsh cleaners can damage nearby plants.
If your home has vinyl, steel, or aluminum siding, a pressure washer is an excellent alternative to hand-scrubbing. If your siding is made of wood, brick, stucco, has peeling paint, or has been painted with paint that may contain lead, don’t use a pressure washer.
Paint and stain aren’t just makeup, they’re foundation. Make sure that siding is protected from moisture and pests by keeping it well painted to seal it.
Wood siding’s worst enemies are moisture and wood-boring pests. You can minimize damage by making sure that Gutters are keeping water from the surface, and that nearby plants aren’t giving moisture and bugs a clear path to the siding. A once-a-year walk-around inspection of wood siding is a good idea.
