Strata Pressure Washing Tips: Need-to-Know Info About Mold and Algae’s Long-Term Effects on Vinyl Siding

If you own or manage a strata, you know property maintenance is important. That involves keeping the property clean.

For instance, if you allow mold and algae to develop on your siding, no one will want to live in your strata. Keeping it clean is thus good for business.

We at Prima Soft Wash, offering strata pressure washing services in Vancouver, BC, will help. We also think it’s important for strata owners and managers to understand that allowing mold and algae to grow on vinyl siding doesn’t merely detract from a strata’s curb appeal. It can also have very significant long-term effects you should be aware of.

This guide will cover some of those effects, helping you better understand why it’s crucial to schedule strata pressure washing service sooner rather than later.

Vancouver, BC Strata Pressure Washing Experts Explain the Long-Term Effects of Mold and Algae on Vinyl Siding

The effects of mold and algae on vinyl siding can vary depending on just how much time has passed since you last scheduled strata pressure washing service. For instance, a relatively substantial degree of mold growth can cause significant discomfort in anyone exposed to it. People who are allergic to mold can even experience fairly severe respiratory symptoms in environments where mold is present.

You obviously want to guard against this. One of your responsibilities as a strata owner or manager is keeping those who live in your community as comfortable and safe as possible. If they’re experiencing nearly chronic discomfort due to the presence of mold on your vinyl siding, they’ll find another place to live, and they certainly won’t recommend your strata to anyone looking for one.

Algae can also pose health risks if you allow it to accumulate on your vinyl siding. Over time, algae may release dangerous toxins. This is yet another reason it’s crucial that you hire professionals to remove both mold and algae when they start to develop.

It’s also worth noting that ignoring the buildup of mold and algae can result in long-term cosmetic problems. Obviously, mold and algae will immediately affect the appearance of your vinyl siding once they start developing. However, if you coordinate with strata pressure washing experts sooner rather than later, you can remove them early, restoring your siding to its original, attractive state.

That may not be the case if you wait too long to schedule service. Left unchecked, the growth of mold and algae can cause permanent discoloration or fading of vinyl siding.

You can’t underestimate the potential financial implications of such a problem. Once more, you already understand that curb appeal plays a major role in your business’ success. The people who currently live in your strata will consider moving elsewhere if their living environment is unattractive. Anyone looking for a new strata to move into will be unlikely to consider yours if one of the first things they notice when they see it is ugly siding. Yes, you can replace your siding if mold and algae affect its appearance permanently, but that’s costly.

These are (thankfully) easy problems to avoid. All you need to do is contact a team of strata pressure washing experts who understand how to safely and thoroughly remove mold and algae from your vinyl siding.

That’s exactly the type of team you’ll find at Prima Soft Wash, serving strata owners and managers in Vancouver, BC. We consistently earn high praise from our customers by delivering impressive results.

Adam & his partner were most efficient in their cleaning of our home, and despite the initial rain, the house turned out beautifully! Thus I would highly recommend Prima Soft Wash...

Our Strata complex has used Prima Soft Wash for the last two years to sweep our roof and then wash all the building flashing and windows. We are very pleased with their service and the excellent work they did.

My home looked like it was scrubbed clean without the hassle of having to most things around, although Adam was so thoughtful in helping move items around my house.

Connie Ens

They came, did an amazing job and all I have to do is enjoy my clean house and yard. They even pulled out all of the "junk" from the back yard that was on the concrete or blocking the siding, cleaned it AND put it back.

Had my home exterior siding and roof cleaned. They did an excellent job! Having not had the exterior cleaned in over 5 years, the house now looks incredible. Will definitely have them do it again in the future.
