You know that one project that you just keep putting off for one reason or another? Well, that project for us was cleaning the vinyl siding at Steph's house. It's been so long since it had been cleaned that it was looking like some kind of science experiment!
Two sides of her house stay fairly shaded creating (unfortunately) perfect conditions for the formation of algae, mold and mildew growth! Cleaning this green mess was going to take a little muscle!
The tank sprayer was pumped up and then we sprayed as high as we could reach bringing in a ladder to reach just a bit higher. Surprisingly we were able to get all but the most highest peak of the house. Fortunately, the peak was not nearly as green and dirty as the rest of the house and with it being so far from the ground, it really is not that noticeable.
This project was a lot of work, but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to clean siding other than hard work! With a regular cleaning schedule, the siding should be able to be maintained by spraying a cleaner only--we'll see!
