Elbow Grease

Sometimes, the best way to clean siding is with a bucket of warm water, some mild soap and a brush with stiff bristles and a long handle. Simply dip the brush into the bucket of water (after adding the soap in) and start scrubbing. You can rinse the siding off with a hose. This is the best way to clean your siding, even though it definitely involves the most work.

Power Wash

This is the next best way to make sure your home’s siding is nice and clean. However, if your siding has any masonry in it (bricks, mortar, etc.), then do not power wash it. The force of the water could blast away the mortar from between the bricks, which could result in the need for your home’s siding replacement. Also, power washing should be used sparingly with pressed board siding. But if you have vinyl siding or a similar material, power washing should work just fine.

A little bit of work and some good, old-fashioned elbow grease can help increase your home’s curb appeal. Plus, giving your home’s siding a good once-over as you are washing it could help you figure out that you need siding replacement before any problems get worse, which could save you money, time and hassle in the long run.
