Housetop Roofing in Raleigh, NC is one of the Triangle’s premier roofing contractors. Not only do we install and repair roofs, we also install and repair vinyl siding. Over time, vinyl siding is undoubtedly going to collect dirt, and sometimes even mold and mildew. Here are some tips for keeping your vinyl siding clean:

  • For everyday cleaning, use a soft brush or cloth and a cleaning solution. Start from the bottom and work your way up, and be sure to rinse the siding with water when you are done.
  • For staining that is tougher to remove, you can use a pressure washer. However, before you do, check your manufacturer’s instructions to make sure that pressure washing is okay for your brand of vinyl siding.
  • If you notice mold and mildew on your vinyl siding, you can remove it with a solution of 70% water and 30% white vinegar.
  • When using insecticides around the exterior of your home, avoid getting on your vinyl siding because it can cause discoloration.
