If you decide to power wash your vinyl or aluminum siding, please be sure to read your power washer instructions carefully before you begin. When cleaning, hold the power washer straight at eye level. Don’t aim the washer upward as the water may collect behind the siding. This collected water could leak, which can produce streaks, or could stay behind the siding, which can cause decay. Set the pressure using a minimum of 1,500 PSI and maximum of 2,400, using a 40-degree tip.

CARE & CLEANING: Siding should be washed periodically by rinsing with a garden hose and clear water particularly in those areas not exposed directly to rain. If you desire to do a more thorough cleaning, or where high soil collection conditions occur,follow these simple instructions.  

DO NOT PRESSURE or POWER WASH. Use a soft-bristled, long-handled washing brush. It attaches to your garden hose and makes washing your siding easier. Do not rub vigorously, as this may create glossy areas over the Product finish.

It is important that immediately following all washing operations,the entire surface be thoroughly rinsed with fresh water from a garden hose. Avoid prolonged or high pressure rinsing of open,ventilated areas.

QUESTION: I asked the
Vinyl Siding Institute
if it is acceptable to
Pressure-Wash Vinyl-Siding.


In am email, Jeffrey Smith of the Vinyl Siding Institute, explained that a soft-bristle brush and garden hose water pressure is all that should be used on vinyl siding.

Then he added this disclaimer, "We do, however, recognize that some homeowners or home maintenance companies prefer to use power washers. For them, we recommend holding the power washer straight at eye level (NOTE: how many do that ATW), not upward, which could drive water behind the siding, possibly dislodging it if the pressure is too high. In fact, some manufacturers don’t want pressure washers used on their products at all. Others allow them, but have limitations on the amount of pressure and the cleaners that can be used."

"Many insurers have considered mold an excluded peril ..."  p12

Examples include ancillary mold damage that results
from an otherwise covered peril, the liability of builders for mold damage that results from new
construction methods and materials, or the liability of property owners for potential health problems related to inhalation of mold spores.

Insurers have discovered that the repair of mold damage to property can be expensive. In
response, insurers have added language to property and liability policies to explicitly exclude or limit coverage for mold. p 13

18% of House Washes are improperly washed
resulting in MOLD and ROT

Vinyl Siding Water Damage
Any one can pressure-wash (at least they think so). The result may be water damage, rot and mold that may not be discovered for years. ALL-THINGS-WOOD avoids the risk by covering the side of your home with FOAM, then scrubbing away the dirt and oxidation. Finally, we rinse from the top down (like rain) so no moisture is forced behind the vinyl.

The Vinyl Siding Institute
Explains...

How do I wash vinyl siding?
Wash vinyl siding with a soft cloth or ordinary long-handled soft bristle brush. For textured surfaces, use only a soft bristle brush to keep the grooves in the texture stain-free. For best results, start at the bottom of the house and work up and rinse the cleaning solution completely from the TOP down before it dries. If your house has brick facing, cover the brick so that it is not affected by the runoff.


Can I use a power washer?
Yes -- but with GREAT caution!   One should read the washer instructions carefully before use. When cleaning, hold the power washer straight at eye level to keep the water on top of the siding where it can clean most effectively. Do not aim the power washer upward as water may be driven behind the siding. (Most pressure-washers / house-washers shoot upwards)

You should also follow the siding manufacturer’s recommendations. Most manufacturers don’t want pressure washers used on their products at all. Others allow them, but have limitations on the amount of pressure and the cleaners that can be used.  All will caution against the use of pressure washers around any opening in the wall, such as windows, doors, electrical wiring, and plumbing.

Bob Vila reports:

http://www.bobvila.com/articles/how-to-clean-vinyl-siding/#.V6ib8xJPhdw

"Another effective way to clean vinyl siding is by using a pressure washer, although some  manufacturers advise against it, and other manufacturers recommend a limited amount of pressure.

If using a pressure washer, be sure to keep the stream at eye level and pointed straight at the siding, not at an angle.  (but watch most pressure-washers, they shoot upwards)  That way, you won’t drive water in behind the siding. Use caution when using a pressure washer around openings like windows, doors, and plumbing connections.
Avoid using any cleaning products that contain organic solvents, chlorine bleach, liquid grease remover, nail polish remover, or furniture polish or cleaners. Any of these products might damage the vinyl siding’s surface. Also, avoid using highly-abrasive scrubbers or steel wool; these, too, can cause damage."
