Cleaning Cedar Cladding?

Cleaning Cedar Cladding - Should I or Shouldn't I?

"What's the best way to go about cleaning cedar cladding," is a question that we get asked on a frequent basis.

The answer we give is always the same: "It depends on what you are cleaning it for."

Let me explain.

If you are simply trying to get rid of dust and cobwebs, as a maintenance wash, then you can pretty much do that yourself with a soft brush and a garden hose.

On the other hand, if you are planning or need to have your cedar cladding restained or oiled, then we advise that you get a professional, someone experienced in cleaning cedar cladding, to assess your building to ensure you get the best possible solution.

Common signs that cleaning cedar cladding is required.

Below you will see 3 pictures which clearly demonstrate how neglected cedar can look. These are common signs that your property is in definite need of some tender loving care.

As you can see in this image, the cedar has deteriorated over time. Oils and stains are designed to repel water but as they break down they begin to allow moisture and damp into the timber which can lead to further, more significant issues.
Algae, mold and mildew begin to grow on cedar particularly in darker, more damp sides of the house. These can and should be cleaned off to avoid any long term damage.
Lichen grows in damp areas and are a cross between mold and algaes. They can be scrapped off or effectively removed with a water blaster, (without damage), when in the hands of a talented operator
