Siding Cleaning

Cleaning siding removes the dirt and mildew that shortens the life of siding. A clean house protects your investment, too. Real estate appraisers stated that a well maintained siding adds from 5% to 10% to the value of your house.

Siding is vulnerable to water infiltration where it butts against windows, doors, and corner moldings. Look for caulk that has cracked due to age or has pulled away from adjacent surfaces, leaving gaps. A Shine Student Services representative will be able to find those affected areas and let you know the proper steps to follow in correctly fixing the problem.


Wood siding: Check for chipped or peeling paint, and cracked boards and trim.
Stucco: Be on the lookout for cracks and chips.
Brick: Look for crumbling mortar joints.

If any of the above is present on your property, your Shine representative will recommend you to repair any defects before cleaning. The sooner the maintenance is done on your property, the better you protect your house from moisture infiltration that can lead to dry rot and mold forming inside your walls.
