Cleaning Fiber Cement Siding

By Karen Lawson
Cleaning Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding has grown tremendously in the past several years. This is partially due to the fact that it is relatively easy to install and the cost is less than traditional wood planks. Another great benefit to fiber cement siding is that it is very resistant to fire and especially easy to maintain. As with any investment you want to make sure you are taking the proper steps to insure the longest life possible for your money.

Make Your Fiber Cement Siding Cleaning a Breeze with Regular Check-Ups

Taking about 15 minutes once a month to go around and check your fiber cement siding is a great way to nip anything in the bud before major problems show up. You will probably find that if you take just a few minutes each month to clean anything big off of your house that when it comes time for the "yearly" cleaning it isn't nearly as big of a task. If you have a pressure washer this is the easiest way to clean; however there are other ways to do it. There are special cleaners you can buy, but that isn't necessary. You can use diluted bleach with some dish soap to clean. Or, if you'd rather not use bleach you can clean with just a half and half solution of vinegar to water and a rag. If there are big pieces of debris that won't come off with just a rag or medium pressure of a hose, you can use a wire brush and scrub lightly to get the big clumps of dirt off. You'll want to be careful not to push too hard. When you go to clean make sure you have a sturdy ladder and start at the top of your house and work your way down.
