Making Vinyl Sidings Spic-and-span with Water and Soap

No matter how advanced building materials like vinyl sidings are, there is always a cleaning time involved for these products. Fortunately, cleaning sidings is not as hard as they were before the introduction of composite materials and plastics. As they say in home TV shopping, "Cleanup is a breeze."

You need to regularly clean the siding of your house if it is surrounded by trees and flowers. Grade school science says bees are not the only beings capable of pollination, but also Mother Nature herself. The wind can bring the pollen and other materials to the nearest siding it makes contact with, providing a breeding ground for things like mold and mildew. It is imperative to wash away the mold and mildew's breeding ground before they even appear to prevent structural damage in your siding.

No fancy siding cleaners here, just some plain water and detergent to make a siding clean and green. Make sure to control the amount of water being sprayed to the siding, especially if you are using a garden hose. Always aim the hose toward the ground, as a siding is not designed to shield the home from water coming from the ground. When using a hose nozzle, set it to mist setting to avoid applying too much water that can seep into your interiors.

Create a detergent solution by mixing the powder and warm water, just as you would in washing clothes. An important thing to note is to not let the soapy water stand for a long while or it will dry and stain the siding Michigan homes have. Work by sections instead of as a whole to clean the siding without leaving soapy residues.

Home improvement experts do not recommend using chlorine-based bleaches for the cleaning solution. Chlorine is a toxic chemical that can kill plants around the vinyl siding Michigan homes have when it seeps into the soil. Read the labels about soap powders and other detergents to identify the non-toxic ones. You can normally learn about this by looking at the ingredients; but it never hurts to ask.

Perhaps the lesson here is that vinyl siding Michigan has to offer is designed for easy cleaning, not self-cleaning. Fortunately, you do not need any specialized cleaning solutions to make your siding appear good as new. Sometimes, the simplest of solutions are just as effective as what the market recommends to the public.
