How to Clean Vinyl Siding

Saved to Idea Box. Organize
It's not something you're proud of - your house is a little moldy around the edges. Yup, there's always that side of the house that doesn't get that much sun and the moisture builds up and mold happens. Thankfully there's an easy way to clean it to enjoy a mold free year! Here's how my husband and I went after our mold on our vinyl siding.

Got a question about this project?

    Someone told me not to use just bleach , It bleaches the mold white but if you mix with vinegar and water it kills the mold. I've tried it last year and I don't have any mold this year. Hoping it want come back.

    Ladies, never mix vinegar with bleach.. Fumes that are dangerous. You could spray with bleach; rinse; then wash with vinegar/water; rinse

      I really appreciate what you explained to me with the mixing of the bleach with the vinegar. I will try to do it that way instead. What a neat way to clean vinyl siding. http://www.wilfor.ca

      I'm not sure, since I've never done it, but I would think it would! It is an outdoor cleaner.

    Will this work on aluminum siding that has been painted?

      Hmmm, I am not really sure. I would be cautious with that to make sure you don't cause any harm to the paint. Make sure to do a test corner in a place you can't see well .

    Or you can just power wash the siding and then you don't have to worry about harming any plants or shrubbery below.

      As long as your siding is installed properly it is not a problem. No different than a driving rain. There are businesses across the country that do power washing.
