Vinyl siding is a popular choice of exterior cladding for many Alpharetta homeowners due to its durability, low maintenance and affordability. However, over time, vinyl siding can accumulate dirt, grime and other types of debris that can make it look unsightly. Professional pressure washing is a great way to clean your home’s vinyl siding.
But is pressure washing vinyl siding safe? The answer is not a straightforward yes or no. While pressure washing can effectively remove dirt and grime, if done incorrectly, it can cause damage to the vinyl siding and even the underlying structure of the home. The skilled and experienced team at Alpha Pressure Washing knows when and how to safely clean your vinyl siding with pressure washing.
How We Keep Your Vinyl Siding Safe
Our pressure washing professionals and trained and experienced with our equipment to clean all kinds of surfaces without causing damage. Here’s what we consider when we tackle any cleaning job, including a home with vinyl siding.
- The Age and Condition of Your Vinyl Siding – If your vinyl siding is relatively new and in good condition, pressure washing is a safe and effective way to clean it. However, if your vinyl siding is old, brittle or has cracks or other damage, pressure washing could cause even more damage.
- Water Pressure and Nozzle Settings – The pressure of the water from a pressure washer can be adjusted. Our team knows the appropriate pressure for your vinyl siding. Too much pressure can cause the vinyl siding to crack, while too little pressure may not effectively remove all the dirt and grime. Using the wrong nozzle or nozzle settings can also damage the vinyl siding.
- Distance from the Siding – The distance between the pressure washer nozzle and the vinyl siding is also important. If the pressure washer is too close to the siding, it can cause damage. Our team knows the safest and most effective distance to maintain for cleaning your home’s vinyl siding.
- Cleaning Solutions – Using a cleaning solution can help remove dirt and grime from vinyl siding. However, it’s important to use a solution that is safe for vinyl siding. Harsh chemicals can damage the siding and even cause it to fade or discolor. Alpha Pressure Washing uses only safe, biodegradable cleaning solutions that won’t harm your siding, landscaping or pets.
