Vinyl siding is not damaged by Clorox bleach, as bleach is actually an excellent cleaning solution to remove dirt, mold and grime from the vinyl surface. Pour Clorox in a pressure washer to clean vinyl siding with advice from a licensed remodeling contractor in this free video on home maintenance.
I'm Tim Gipson, and I'm going to talk to you about Clorox and vinyl siding, and specifically does Clorox damage vinyl siding? Any bleach, such as Clorox, actually will not damage vinyl siding. The color in vinyl siding is solid, and actually Clorox or any other kind of bleach is an excellent solution to use when you need to get rid of mold and mildew that grows on your vinyl siding. Now, what we want to do, though, is we don't want to use it straight. Now if you have a pressure washer, you can actually pour the Clorox in with a cleaning solution, and you want to use a cleaning solution that is either specifically designed for pressure washers, or you can use a standard dish soap, such as Dawn or Palmolive or any kind of store brand, but something that you would use just in the sink. And then what we would do is we would dilute this a little bit with water in here. And, typically, what you want to use is, when you're using bleach to clean mold or mildew, you want to use one part bleach to four parts water. Now, we can just pour this directly in our reservoir, because it'll actually dilute on its own. So when we're cleaning, we put that in there, we can spray, and, we can actually spray and wash and treat for mildew all in one step with this. When you're using your pressure washer, you'll apply the bleach-soap solution with this black tip, which is the low pressure sudsing solution, and then you can come back with these higher pressure tips. This is a forty degree, which has a wider spread. This is a twenty five and a zero. The lower the degree of the nozzle, then the higher the pressure, which allows you to get some, you know, more stubborn areas. You want to be careful about on siding, on using the zero, 'cause you can possibly damage the siding with that. So I'm Tim Gipson talking about if Clorox will damage vinyl siding.
