It is a strong suggestion that homeowners clean the vinyl siding of their homes at least once a year. It is an excellent way to clean the home, remove dirt, mold, and mildew, ultimately protecting the family and family home. Pressure washing the house is the very best way to do this. Most people think they can go down to a big box DIY, rent a pressure washer and do the work themselves.
This is an exceptionally bad idea. It is far better to have a highly trained pressure washing crew come and do the work to save the trouble and potential costly mistakes. We have the equipment, experience, and time to do this right the first time and every time. It is a strong recommendation you call us to come and provide pressure washing services on your home.
The main reason to hire a professional pressure washing team is that pressure washing vinyl siding requires specific care, so there will be no damage. Incorrect use of a pressure washer can damage the vinyl siding and cause more damage such as cracks or holes. Let a professional do it for you to prevent this.
Here are the steps a highly trained professional pressure washing crew will take to pressure wash your home and vinyl siding while protecting your investment.
Professional Pressure Washing First Step is an Inspection
Our highly trained professional pressure washing crews will walk around your home and thoroughly check the exterior. We are looking for spots that need a bit of extra elbow grease. We are also looking for signs of damage to your home or siding, and we will let you know if we see any. Damage to your siding is essential to get fixed and taken care of immediately to prevent future problems that are more serious and potentially costly.
Pressure Washing and Mold, Mildew, Dirt, and Extra Grime
There will likely be areas on your vinyl siding with particularly stubborn spots of mold, mildew, tree pollen, or dirt that need a solid scrubbing. We have brushes on poles that feed detergent and water to those spots. This way, Squeegee Squad gets an early start on those spots. (Pro tip: The northwest corner of the home is where mold and mildew are most likely to accumulate because this is the part of the home that gets the least amount of direct sunlight.)
Pressure Washing and Detergents Used For The Best Clean
Many people wrongly assume that professional pressure washers use bleach as a detergent to get vinyl siding cleaned. Bleach will fall down onto the grass and landscaping around the foundation of the home and can kill it. Our pressure washing team will use safe and eco-friendly detergents safe for the grass and plants in the area to be pressure washed.
The Correct Usage of a Pressure Washer is Imperative!
Commercially available and rented pressure washers are exceptionally powerful and shouldn’t be used by those who aren’t highly trained professionals in the art of pressure washing. Those who do not know the proper distances from the siding but close enough to do the cleaning will do one of two things:
- Spend extra time cleaning the vinyl siding at best.
- Damage the vinyl siding by using the wrong pressure, wrong angle, wrong distance, or any number of other mistakes at worst.
Either way, a failed DIY pressure washing is going to be more expensive than if you had called in the professional pressure washing team right away.
Pressure Washing Often Requires Extra Attention and Care
There are some parts of the home and vinyl siding that require extra care when pressure washing. Again, this is why we strongly recommend a professional pressure washing crew versus doing it yourself. Our highly trained pressure washing teams are careful with:
- Windows and window screens
- Outdoor lighting
- Screen doors
- Anything else we see that deserves particular attention.
