How to Remove Mildew From Your Vinyl Siding


About this time every year, homeowners get back outside to tackle various home improvement projects. These are often great ways to enhance the appearance of your property. But there’s something else that you might notice as you’re working around your home: unsightly mildew on your vinyl siding. Over the winter, the weather is often cold and damp. Couple that with shorter days and less sunshine and you’ve got the perfect conditions for mildew to grow. The pressure washing experts at Pressure Pros of the Carolinas want you to know about the different ways you can remove mildew from your vinyl siding.

  1. Scrubbing: This is the old-fashioned way to get the job done. A bucket of water, a sturdy brush, and some elbow grease will get rid of the mildew. However, it may be difficult to remove every bit of it. Your siding may look streaked or uneven.
  2. DIY pressure washing: You can buy or rent power washers for residential use at big box stores. However, you have to absolutely sure you’re using the proper concentration of cleaner along with the proper pressure. Failing to do so will cause damage to your home.
  3. Professional pressure washing: Yes, you’ll have to pay for someone else to do the job, but it will pay off when you see the results. Hiring professional pressure washers means you’ll always get beautiful results without worrying about damage.

Which option sounds best to you? Professional pressure washing offers the best cleaning with the least risk. To learn more about pressure washing and house washing in Rock Hill, Lake Wylie, Tega Cay, Fort Mill, greater York County, Charlotte, and surrounding areas of the Carolinas, call Pressure Pros of the Carolinas.
