Siding cleaning can breathe new life into your home or business, providing a refreshing, clean look that people are sure to notice. However, cleaning siding isn’t always as easy as it may sound. A process must be followed, which is why siding cleaning is often best left to a professional.

Siding Cleaning: Why It’s Best to Hire a Professional

  • A unique cleaning formula will need to be used. The condition and dirtiness of the siding will determine the solution used for your siding cleaning. A professional will know which solutions work best to remove particular substances and how to do so without damaging surfaces.
  • If not done correctly, the paint can be stripped. Especially when it comes to older siding, a soft washing method may be a better cleaning choice over traditional pressure washing. A professional will be able to analyze the condition of your siding and choose the best method to avoid stripping paint or damaging the siding.
  • Substances you’re removing can be harmful. Substances most often removed during siding cleaning include mold, mildew, algae, and dust. If proper cleaning equipment is not used and adequate safety equipment is not worn, these substances can cause severe health issues.
  • It’s important to wash in sections to avoid drying. Cleaning in ten-foot increments is essential to keep the cleanser from drying on the siding. This will prevent a film or visible build-up of the cleanser, which can discolor or fade siding over time.
