Vinyl Siding – Is It A Maintenance Free Product


Vinyl siding is used as an exterior siding more often than any other type of material. Many homeowners are under the impression that because there house has vinyl siding that the exterior is maintenance free. While vinyl siding holds up great and will last for many many years, it is NOT a no maintenance product.

The vinyl siding on your home or business needs to be cleaned just like any other type of outdoor surface. Dirt, dust, grime and many other organic and non-organic material will attach itself to the siding and because of this, you will see the growth of mildew, mold and algae on the siding.

While vinyl siding does get dirty, it is a product that cleans up very quickly when you use a Soft Wash process, many years ago people would blast away at the siding with a pressure washer, trying to “blow” the dirt and grime from the vinyl. Now, thanks to companies like Roof Cleaner of Grand Rapids there is a safer way to clean siding. No more having to worry about a pressure washer damaging the siding, ruining seals around doors and windows or even blowing water up behind the siding where it will cause mold growth.
