Vinyl siding can become stained after grass is cut or during humid weather. Siding stains can give a home an unattractive appearance. Many times, stains are associated with mildew and can grow larger if they are not treated promptly. A homeowner can make a cleaning solution to remove mildew from their home. If detergent and water are mixed together in a garden sprayer’s tank, the cleaning solution can be applied to the stains to help dissolve them.
A scrub brush needs to be used to help loosen stains that are on siding pieces. As long as a brush that does not have stiff bristles is used, siding won’t be at risk of becoming scratched. Stubborn stains on siding may require a stronger cleaning solution. Standard bleach that is added to soapy water will effectively remove stains of all sizes. Before bleach is added to siding, a homeowner may wish to cover plants and foliage that surround their home so that they are not exposed to any chemicals.
If an individual does not own a garden sprayer, they can still effectively eliminate stains by filling a bucket with a cleaning solution and dipping a scrub brush into it. Once stains have been eliminated from siding, a water hose that is adjusted to a strong setting can be used to rinse away any of the cleaning solution that remains on the vinyl. If efforts have been made to clean siding, but were not effective, a homeowner can call a siding specialist to receive assistance.
