My house sits in a subdivision facing East. The houses in the subdivision are very close together and certain areas of my house do not get a lot of sunlight. The lack of sunlight causes green algae to grow on the siding just like it does on the north side of a tree. It can become quite unsightly.
A few years ago I received an offer in my mailbox from a local company offering to pressure wash my house for a flat rate. I thought it was a good deal and the house needed it so I gave them a call. They came out and cleaned the house and did a good job and I paid them.
A couple of years later the house needed it again so I called them back for an estimate and it was twice the original rate. I guess the introductory offer was just to get me to try their services. Needless to say I did not use them. It was cheaper for me to go out and buy my own pressure washer and do it myself, and that is what I did.
I’ve been pressure washing my house myself for a few years now, but it is not easy and I do not look forward to it. This past summer I was at my local hardware store and saw a product they had on sale called Mold Armor. The bottle stated that it would clean the mold from my siding and could reach the 2nd story by using just my garden hose. It was on sale for about 6-7 bucks a bottle so I bought a couple of bottles to give it a try.
I took it home and tried it out on a particularly bad area of my house and it was completely clean within 20 minutes. I could not believe it….how easy it was. Just hooked it to my garden hose, sprayed it on, waited 10 minutes, flipped it to the rinse mode and rinsed it off.
I immediately went back to the hardware store and got 3 more bottles. I did my whole house in about 2 to 3 hours with no pain, no ladders, no hassles. I highly recommend this product. Get you some and try it for yourself. It’s well worth it.
