How To Clean Your Vinyl Siding With Stain Solver

It may not be the most exciting job on your to-do list, but cleaning the siding on your house is important not only for looks but also to improve the lifespan of your home! Luckily, with Stain Solver you can turn this job from something you dread doing into a quick and easy process.

Why You Need To Clean Your Vinyl Siding

There are a few reasons why it's important to clean your vinyl siding on a regular basis.

First, to keep things looking good! You're proud of your home and want to make sure that it looks as good as possible. Unsightly stains and grime on your siding can be a real bummer when you're entertaining outside or just driving home after a long day at work.

More importantly, siding can grow all sorts of nasty stuff on it, like mold and mildew. These bacteria can make a home on vinyl siding's surface, leading to all sorts of problems. Regularly removing dirt and other contaminants can keep these stains from taking hold on the exterior of your home, making it a safer and more comfortable place for all.

Finally, cleaning vinyl siding regularly is an important part of doing routine maintenance on your home. As the old saying goes, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," and this is very true when it comes to cleaning. Making sure that you're regularly cleaning your vinyl siding is a great way to prevent long-term damage or permanent stains.

Stain Solver Makes It Easy

Luckily, Stain Solver is the perfect environmentally-friendly option for vinyl siding cleaning. It's super effective on stains, mold, and mildew but safe to use around plants and other landscaping features. It's an oxygen bleach, which means that it uses a safe and effective chemical reaction to release oxygen from the Stain Solver powder, effortlessly lifting stains from your vinyl siding. It's very effective as a general-purpose cleaner as well!

Stain Solver has lots of advantages over chlorine bleach, but the primary one is its safety. Chlorine bleach is a very harsh chemical that is only appropriate for use in very specialized and controlled settings. You should take great care when using it around your home and even more so when using it outdoors, as it can kill plants and wildlife, not to mention the damage it can do for your siding! For these reasons, we do NOT recommend using chlorine bleach as your cleaning solution for vinyl siding.

How To Clean Siding Without a Pressure Washer

You might be thinking that if you don't have a pressure washer, you're out of luck when it comes to cleaning your vinyl siding. Not so with Stain Solver! One of the biggest advantages of cleaning your vinyl siding with Stain Solver is that you don't need a pressure washer or any other abrasive materials to effectively and quickly clean your siding. You can use a pressure washer if you'd like, but it's not necessary.
