Need Pressure Washer info
Noticed some mold on the vinyl siding on the North side of the house. In the 10 years since I built the house mold occasionally appeared on the west side where it was easily attacked with a pump up garden sprayer standing no the deck (1 story ranch) The North side however is a lot taller and would require an extension ladder.
Seemed to remember that folks pressure wash Vinyl for this? The solution I have used in the past was 3/4 cup bleach to a gallon of water. Borrowed my brother's Task Force electric pressure washer (he got it at an end of season sale at lowe's for $50) it claims 1600 PSI and 1.5 GPM. Reading the instructions it had dire warnings about adding bleach, chlorine, etc. to the soap dispenser. Is that straight bleach or is a bleach/water solution OK? Alternately, is there an "approved" anti mold PW soap?
Obviously, I know little about these kritters. My experience to date was using a gas powered unit on the dozer, farm equipment, etc. and soap wasn't a big concern.
Also want to do the back deck floor and was going to rent a gas powered unit, now wondering if this electric would do anything?
Any thoughts or opinions welcome.
