One of the best ways to keep your home or business well-maintained is to pressure wash the surface regularly. This keeps dirt, mold, and any other debris off the building so that it always looks great. Siding cleaning by pressure washing can be used on everything from wood to brick to vinyl siding, making it a very popular service here in Rochester, New York. at Just Gutter Cleaning.
However, one big concern that we often hear from our customers is: Does pressure washing damage vinyl siding? The answer may surprise you.
Pressure washing absolutely can damage vinyl siding if done incorrectly. We have seen countless homes and buildings that have damaged areas because someone without the proper training has tried to pressure wash their building.
Pressure washing involves water being pushed through a small hose and wand after being compressed. This creates a very powerful blast of water that can be used to scrub away any kind of dirt or debris. Think of an automatic car wash, and how forceful the water must be to get rid of dried bird droppings or caked-on mud. That is exactly what a pressure washer is for the side of your home.
Pressure washing is not good to use on any kind of soft surface, like window screens, for example. Vinyl siding is a hard surface, but it’s not as hard as brick. That means that when you use pressure washing on vinyl, you really have to be very careful to not have any damage during the siding cleaning process.
