How to Clean Vinyl Siding

Megan Aubrey
by Megan Aubrey
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.
Clorox Pro Results that attaches to the hose.
Yuck! Check out that mold!
First step: spray down the siding with the cleaner attached to the hose.
Next, put your back into it. Scrub, baby, scrub!
Ah, literally squeaky clean!
Now that's a pretty sight!

    What is there are parts you cannot reach with a scrub brush? Does this still work on those spots?

    If you get bleach on your flowers or bushes, won't that kill them?

    This is exactly what I do and it works great. No scrubbing needed. Just let the bleach sit a minute before rinseing and redo tough spots. Easy Peary.

    The best way I have found is by using any brand of siding cleaner that says MOLD INHIBITOR . I find I can go an extra year sometimes two without the mold returning

    as bleach requires me each year
