How to Pressure Wash Vinyl Siding
First, Carefully Inspect Your Home
Pressure Washer Power Settings
Power washing siding on a multi-level home is more difficult than a standard home. This can be done easiest by choosing the right setting for the stream of water. Not all pressure washer units have the ability to select the type of stream to use. The best stream to use on this type of home is a fan setting. This stream of water is narrow near the wand but widens at the end. This covers a larger area of the siding.
Direction of Water Stream
When you use a power washer to clean siding, you have to keep the direction of the water in mind. How the water flows also hinges on the material, the siding is made from. If you are using a strong stream of water, you always want to have the water flowing down the siding. In a multi-level home, you will need to get the top-level first. Then, the water will cascade down to the other levels. As you clean, you will be moving from side to side and gradually moving the wand down. If you are using water power and a half or as a fan, you can hit the siding from the bottom of the lip. This will get in the grooves of the siding.
Depending on how dirty the siding is, you can add detergent to some power washers. This will make power washing the siding go smoother as the dirt will be cut through easily. Just remember to rinse off with clean water.
