Yearly cleaning and repair of your home’s siding will extend its life and keep off replacement costs. Washing the siding not only removes the dirt and mildew ,it also protects your investment. In fact, most real estate appraisers say that, good curb appeal can add 5%-10% to the value of your house.

There are two main methods of cleaning your siding, whether it is Stucco, Vinyl, Fiber Cement, Aluminium or wood siding. They are Pressure Washing and Manual Scrubbing.

Here is how the methods compare:

Manual Scrubbing

Pros
  • Manual scrubbing is more thorough and removes dirt better than pressure washing alone.
  • It also allows you to inspect and repair the sidings.
Cons
  • Washing the house exterior by hand is slow and physically demanding.
  • If you are doing it on your own, it is difficult and potentially dangerous, because it may involve climbing ladders.

Pressure Washing

Pros
  • It takes less time
  • It is easier
Cons
  • It could damage the siding if the water pressure is not well regulated.
  • It is less thorough and can leave streak marks(Zebra marks) where the pressure washer skipped.
