Removing Mildew From Vinyl Siding

Removing Mildew From Vinyl SidingHave you noticed mildew growing on the side of your home? If so, it’s important to take steps to remove it as soon as possible. Similar to mold, mildew is a type of fungus that can quickly spread. In addition to detracting from the appearance of your home, it can cause health issues like coughing, headaches, and throat soreness. It’s fairly common for mildew to grow in shaded, damp areas, as well as on sections of vinyl siding where there’s considerable dirt buildup.

While you should always follow any manufacturer instructions specific to your siding, one of the best ways to remove mildew from vinyl siding is to wipe it down with a soft cloth or soft-bristled brush and a solution of three parts distilled white vinegar and seven parts water. If that’s not strong enough, you may want to try a solution of one part oxygen bleach and 16 parts water—oxygen bleach is a smart alternative to standard laundry bleach because it’s less likely to harm any surrounding landscaping.

You’ll want to start at the bottom of your siding and work toward the top, rinsing it off as you move along. No matter how difficult it may be to remove the mildew from your vinyl siding, make sure to not use any abrasive cleansers, cloths, or brushes, since doing so could damage your siding.
