When you bought your home, it was spotless and beautiful. However, as the years have gone on, your home has seen the wear and tear from weather. The beating sun, snow, hail, and rain tends to make an all-out attack on your home year-round. Over time this will cause several issues that need to be addressed. One of those issues is rust on vinyl siding. Vinyl siding is a common material that is used on homes but certainly comes with its maintenance challenges. Wilson’s Power Washing and Sealing has worked on homes many homes, removing rust on their siding. Here are some helpful tips on how to avoid it in the first place.
Have your siding cleaned at least once to twice a year. This will help your siding to stay clean and in perfect condition. Just a little bit of water and dish soap will go a long way in helping your home stay healthy. Keep in mind that as you work on your home you will want to make sure that you thoroughly inspect your home so that you catch growth and rust on the outset. It is much easier to clean and get rust off when it’s small than when it has developed into a huge area. Most homeowners let it get to that point because they don’t make these thorough inspections on annual and biannual bases.
When cleaning your home, make sure you do your research. You might be inclined to use a pressure washer on your siding but that in fact can damage it and void the warranty. To avoid this, you’ll want to make sure that you do your research on the specific type of siding that you have and if it can handle that kind of pressure. If it can’t then it’s best to go with a hose and a nylon brush. If that seems like a lot of work or you’re still uneasy about it then call us today and we can soft wash your home safely.
If you do find rust on your home and can’t seem to get it off, then call the professionals. You won’t even be able to tell where the rust was to begin with. Call us today for a free home estimate or fill out our online request form!
