Why Vinyl Siding Should Be Cleaned By a Professional Pressure Washing Company.

The popularity of vinyl siding has increased dramatically over the past 10 years. The quality, durability, price, and visual appeal have made this the siding of choice for many homeowners. Just like any other major investment, the best way to ensure the quality of vinyl siding is to maintain it on a regular basis.
The very nature of siding is to protect the interior of your home by keeping exterior elements from intruding. This is a tough job, but vinyl stands up to the challenge very well. The vinyl siding on the exterior of your home is subject to pollutants, sun exposure, acid rain, mold and mildew, and many other elements. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, having it professionally cleaned on a regular basis can prevent premature degradation and keep your home looking great. Mold and mildew grow very rapidly on vinyl siding. If neglected for too long, it can cause permanent damage to your siding. Age, sun, and environmental pollutants can cause your vinyl to oxidize, giving your home a dull appearance.
A simple solution to these issues is to hire a professional pressure washing company to clean your home each year. Look for a company that specializes in pressure washing services. Many handymen, painters, and landscaping companies have pressure washing as an “add on” service. While more of a bargain up front, these companies should be avoided as improper technique and lack of chemical knowledge can result in irreparable damage to your home. Homeowners should use companies that have insurance, can provide references, and display a high degree of professionalism. Look for companies that offer on-site free estimates, have uniforms, and belong to professional organizations like PWNC.
Likewise, this is a service that “do-it-yourself” homeowners should avoid. Forcing water under the siding, use of excessive water pressure, and improper chemicals can not only cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home, but often result in physical injury to the homeowner. Getting your home serviced annually by a reputable, professional pressure washing company can keep your investment looking great, save you a lot of money and keep you from taking a trip to the emergency room.
