Vinyl siding is a highly reliable type of cladding that you can use for your home. It is also considered as a versatile material, suiting different styles and weather conditions. Moreover, it does not require a high level of maintenance. In this post, Woodbridge Home Exteriors lists four simple ways to keep your vinyl siding in top condition.
Schedule your siding for thorough cleaning at least once a year, ideally at the start of spring. This allows you to remove dirt and debris that may have accumulated during winter storms.
Use the Right Cleaning Tools
You don’t need much when cleaning your vinyl siding. A simple mixture of warm water and laundry soap can usually do the trick. If you are trying to remove grime, you can opt to use a garden hose or a pressure washer. Just be careful with the pressure washer — do not use the high setting as this can damage your siding. Also, make sure that the nozzle is aimed downward to prevent the water from going between the slats.
Check for Signs of Damage
Of course, ensure that your siding has not suffered from any damage. Make sure there is no buildup of grime or algae so that you can prolong the service life of your siding. However, if you find any damage, call an expert and plan for siding replacement as needed.
Inspect the Shrubbery Around Your Home
Pay attention to the branches, tree limbs and other debris that could possibly damage your siding, particularly during harsh winds or storms. Vinyl typically has good resistance against impact, but branches, twigs, and other debris may still puncture or damage the siding in extreme conditions.
