Any tips for pressure washing vinyl siding?
Best solutions to use? Pressure to use? Should I cover bushes ? I’ve read not to spray upwards on higher areas. Is that really that much of an issue. First time doing this. Thanks in advance.

If you use Jomax you probably won’t even need the pressure washer.

What is that? Safe for plants?

Read that it is really good for mold and algae. I only have a few areas in the back side if the house. It is mainly just dirt and grime buildup. I assume it will knock that out easily if it works well for mold?

If that’s all you’re dealing with, it should easily take care of it. You can get it at Lowe’s or most hardware stores. Great product and eliminates the need to pressure wash in most instances.

I use it on a wall with a flowerbed and haven’t ever had any issues with the plants. I think the label advertises it as plant safe. Your mileage may vary.

Low pressure Chemical spray is better then pressure in most cases. High pressure pushes water in places you might not want it and can damage the structure

I'm a big fan of Jomax and it is my go-to when cleaning the exterior of houses prior to painting to remove a lot of the mold, mildew and grime.

Like already mentioned, you probably won't need a pressure washer, just a good nozzle on the garden hose should do the trick.

We did a Jonas bleach combo and it worked great. Don’t remember the ratio though.

two cups of bleach to one gallon of water in a pump sprayer. Pre wash and wet everything down, plants too. Spray the bleach, wait 10 mins, then just wash off with a hose. Wet the plants down real good after. You will have no problems with them. Been doing it this way 20+ years.

I'm fixing to start pressure washing my guest house today for painting. It's Hardie board siding.

Yeah I have a few areas of mold but it mainly just a light film of dirt on the rest. Thanks for the replies.

Yeah bleach and water mix with a 6” push broom for some lights scrubbing and you won’t damage siding or push water in places you don’t want it

Store bought bleach is like 27%. Some are less. At this time, look for clearance sale of pool bleach in jugs which is closer to 55% and cheaper.

I’ve used it on a metal shed. The worse off areas needed to be slightly scrubbed with a brush then rinsed. Was also wicked hot when I did this and I was fighting it drying, I’m sure that didn’t help.
