As the end of the winter season approaches, you should prioritize projects that can help your home recover from harsh weather conditions. Inspecting your vinyl siding this spring, for instance, can help you identify a need for replacement, repair or cleaning. Valiant Home Remodelers discusses some ways to maintain this exterior accessory.
Vinyl siding is low maintenance, but it still requires regular upkeep. You need to be equipped with the right items to avoid damaging its surface. You can use a soft-bristle scrub brushes to remove the embedded dirt. When dealing with hard-to-reach areas, use a broom to clean the area. You will also need a couple of sponges for narrow spaces.
For more advanced siding cleaning, you can use a pressure washer or plain water. Not everyone, however, has access to these items. With gentle cleaners that can be found in your home, you can remove grime in no time. You can also use vinegar to eliminate new mold and mildew stains.
The best way to clean your siding is to start from the bottom and work your way up. In areas where you have to pay more attention, apply your cleaning solution on them, and leave for a couple of minutes. This way, the stains will be easier to remove.
In winter, your siding endures extremely low temperatures and sometimes even strong winds that could pull the material off the walls. Make sure the insulation material underneath is secure.
