Three Tips for Powerwashing Your Siding

5 Tips for Power Washing Your Siding

The outside of your house is the first impression you make when guests come over. If you have dirty siding, what does that say about the rest of your home? Powerwashing your siding can take care of the grime that builds up, upping your curb appeal and making a great first impression.

Three Tips for Powerwashing Your Siding

Prep your space

Remove flower pots, decorations, and everything that can be moved from the area before you get started. Spray down your siding with regular hose water to prep the space.

Choose the right settings

The pressure you need to wash your siding will likely be between 1,300 and 1,600 pounds per square inch. (Be aware this is a high enough force to cause damage is not used properly, which is why we prefer soft power washing methods). Your hose should be set to a 25-degree angle. Of course, read the manual from your power washer’s manufacturer for specific setting instructions.

Use the right motion

“Sweep” the siding, starting from one side your house and working the water stream toward the far side. This helps ensure there aren’t any missed spots, which will show when you are finished because the chemical solution does part of the work. You can “feather” your motion to help mask the starts and stops of the sweep. You do this by going over the overlap part with quick, small sweeping motions.
