One of the most attractive features of vinyl siding is that it is easy to maintain. Although, that does not mean you should just leave it alone without ever inspecting or cleaning it. Vinyl siding requires occasional maintenance and care, so it doesn’t turn green from a build-up of pollen, dirt, and other grime. There a few simple tips you should follow to make your vinyl look good as new all year long.
Wash, Rinse, and Repeat
One of the most critical tasks you can do for your vinyl siding is to clean it with a water hose. You only have to clean your vinyl siding once a year, which should be before the cold weather of winter comes around. Depending on how dirty your siding is, you should only have to hose it down with warm water. If you let dirt and grime accumulate, you will probably have to scrub with a cleaning solution and then rinse it off with a hose immediately after.
Along with washing your vinyl siding, it is critical to inspect it at the beginning of spring and the end of fall. Make sure to check for any cracks or loose areas in your siding, which can leave your home susceptible to water damage and mold. If your siding is cracked or damaged, it is critical that you contact your contractor immediately to repair it. The professionals at Dibello Roofing can fix your vinyl siding quickly and easily.
Once you install vinyl siding on your home, you need to watch out for any potential items that can crack or break it. Make sure to avoid hitting your siding with a lawn mower, a bike, a ball, or any other hard items. If there are any long branches close to your vinyl siding, it is vital that you trim them to avoid scratching or damaging your siding. Once your vinyl siding is cracked, it is susceptible to water damage.
