Cleaning the Siding
Sidings are susceptible to dirt, grime and mildew. Apart from the surface, they accumulate on the underside of the siding. The easiest thing to do is scrub and wash the siding regularly. You may use a vinegar solution when cleaning small and stubborn stains.
If things are quite serious, combine about one-third cup of powdered detergent, small amount of bleach and one gallon of water. Be careful when using other cleaning chemicals, especially if you’re cleaning the areas of the siding close to other house parts, such as doors and windows; some of them are harsh and may damage wood.
Cleaning the Surrounding Areas
Apart from the sidings, you need to clean the surrounding areas where dirt, grime and mould may come from. If you have trees and tall plants around, you should collect fallen and dry leaves regularly, as they help build up moisture. Clean the gutters regularly, especially during fall and winter.
Repairing Vinyl Siding
You can perform minor repairs on Vinyl sidings yourself. If there are holes in your Vinyl siding, apply a generous amount of caulking into them. Allow them to dry, and use a scraper to cut away the excess and visible caulking. If you’re dealing with larger cracks, holes and colour mismatch, it’s best to call professionals.
