Tips for Pressure Cleaning Vinyl Cladding - Pressure Cleaning Houses
Cleaning vinyl cladding is one of the easiest types of pressure cleaning projects but certain steps should be taken to ensure the work lasts for extended periods of time.
One of the misconceptions about pressure cleaning houses covered with vinyl cladding is that a simple cleansing is all that's required. This is not true and if your main reason for cleaning the house is to remove mildew, then you will soon find out that the simple cleansing was only a temporary fix as the mildew will usually return within a few months, especially in warm, damp climates.
To keep the cladding looking new for longer periods of time, a wax mix should be added to the cleaning process which will help the vinyl resist the growth of mildew as well as reduce the amount of dirt that sticks to the cladding. Adding the wax into the cleaning process will save you money and help you home win the battle against dirt, algae and especially mildew. It will also protect the vinyl cladding from the elements of nature; think of it as if you were applying wax to your car to protect the finish. You wouldn't want to skip that step for too long or the finish will start to look discolored and everything that touches it sticks, that is the same effect that happens to your home.
The only catch to applying a wax mix to help protect your home is finding out what type of wax should be used and what the proper mix ratio is.
Pressure cleaning professionals protect their mixture formulas as highly regarded secrets of their business. And unless you know a pro, chances are you won't get any of them to tell you.
Another alternative would be to hire a professional cleaning contractor that cleans cladding properly and save yourself the effort.
