Power washing is a fast, effective way to strip your house’s exterior of dirt, stains, or grime. But you may be wondering, can power washing damage the vinyl siding on my home?
Well, it depends. Both the age of the siding and the last time you had it cleaned can affect whether your vinyl siding is safe enough for a power wash.
The age of your siding impacts how much damage you’ll risk. If your siding is very old, there may be cracks you didn’t know existed, and they may require more care when power washing. A professional will be able to determine trouble spots and areas where hand-washing may be better.
Last time you had it cleaned
How long have dirt or mildew sat on the surface? Have they worn down the siding so that it’s at risk to crack or fall apart with power washing? These will contribute to your siding aging faster (see above).
The short answer is yes, power washing can damage vinyl siding — but a professional will be able to determine trouble spots and make sure the siding is in good condition for cleaning.
