Hemming aluminum siding or vinal siding, there’s a few tips to remember, first of all the proper preparation of the siding it self. If you do not clean the siding properly then there is really no use even considering painting because the paint will not stick. Now, most people will take pale of water and a scrub brush and precede the mix up a cleaning formula and I always suggest use a cleaning formula that biodegradable, something that is not going to affect the skin, something really mild. Because is thus not to be that harsh in order in order to clean the vinal or aluminum siding, but this is the trick here, use a sprayer, do not go through whole process of putting in a pale using a scrub brush and wasting most of it between the pale in the siding. Always start at the bottom, never start at the top when you are cleaning otherwise you going to have stains all the way through to this siding it self.
Take the hose, hose down the side of the home, once you hose the side of the home down now you take the sprayer that you put the cleaning formula into and spray. Doing upwards to 3 to 4 runs siding, the full length of the home, spraying it on do not waste the material, there’s no use of any waste going on the ground it is not going to do thing down on the ground. Once you have sprayed it, let set for about anywhere 2 to 5 minutes and then very simply scrub. I always suggest never use a pressure washer in this particular case unless you are using a professional service. That way, the professional certified he knows, she will know that the water cannot get up underneath. After you sprayed it, scrubbed it and then hose it off or rinse it. That is all there is to the cleaning of the side of a home.
