The largely painted exterior surfaces are frequently hesitated to be power washed by homeowners. Pressure washing can and should be done if the paint is in good condition, where there isn’t any bubbling, chipping, and peeling present.

The vinyl, though tough, is also light and pliant, so the water can easily get under it if you use the wrong angle.
