Process of Power Washing Vinyl Siding

While you can clean your vinyl siding any way you want it makes the most sense to start from the top and work your way down. This way you do not have to rinse or clean the same areas more than one time. The professionals at J&J Power Wash will mix cleaning agents into a five gallon bucket and apply to one side of your home with our spray applicator.  Let the cleaning agent work its magic on the siding for several minutes before you start hand brushing the vinyl siding. It also helps to keep an additional 5 gallon bucket filled with a cleaning agent that you can periodically dip your soft brush into during the brushing process.
