Regarding vinyl siding maintenance, power washing is one of the most common options for homeowners.

Like when cleaning your vinyl replacement windows, there are some tips you can follow when washing your siding.
Here are a few tips that you can keep in mind:
- 1 Make necessary preparations first
- 2 Adjust the angle of your spray accordingly
- 3 Start with a low-pressure water
- 4 Learn about the proper cleaning process
Make necessary preparations first
The first thing that you must do is to make sure that you prepare all the needed materials first. Check that you have enough water supply to ensure the pressure washer works efficiently.
While power washing siding, be sure to:
Check the water flow
Clean the inlet filter
Secure the connections
Adjust the angle of your spray accordingly
The best angle for your spray when power washing is to place the nozzle perpendicular to the surface you want to clean.
Start with a low-pressure water
Avoid using the maximum pressure during power washing. This will prevent blasting off your siding paint or damaging its core. Create a 10-foot distance from the surface you want to clean and move closer until you get the best pressure for washing. Ask your local siding and window company for assistance.
