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

behind the vinyl siding or damaged siding.

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.

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:

"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."



Our ReVinylize System will cost just over twice as much as pressure-washing. But you won't have the dangers of pressure washing (see slides above) or possible health issues with MOLD. Moreover, the protection lasts

for up to 10 years, we offer a warranty and the fungus /algae

is arrested by our proprietary

microbial sealer, PLUS you just rinse off the dirt with a garden-hose for years to

come -- no pressure washing

costs or risks.
