Care and Maintenance of your New Vinyl Siding

Like any surface exposed to the outside elements, your vinyl siding will get dirty from time to time. Often, heavy rains will wash the vinyl clean, but if the rain is not enough, you can care and maintain for your siding by following these simple instructions:
  • Wash using a soft cloth or ordinary long handled soft bristle brush, for textured surfaces; use only a soft bristle brush to avoid smearing the stain into the grooves of the texture. Clean gently to avoid surface abrasion. After cleaning, rinse with water.
  • To wash the entire house, start at the bottom and work your way up to the top, then rinse from top to bottom to prevent streaking.
  • Do not use products like grease remover, organic solvents, nail polish remover, furniture cleaners, cleaners containing chlorine bleach, strong soaps and detergents. Doing this can affect the surface appearance of the vinyl.
  • Most cleaners are ineffective in cleaning stains such as pencil, oil and tar. In these cases, you may wish to use a mildly abrasive cleaner such as Soft Scrub®, Ajax®, Bon Ami®, but use of abrasive material could have a negative effect on surface appearance.
