Default Removing "Clingers" from vines on press board siding

What is the easiest way to remove the million "clingers" that ivy attaches to houses that it grows on? (they are on several hundred square feet)

It is 12" lap pressboard siding. We have pressure washed them off stucco, but I'm not sure if I can get them off pressboard with a pressure washer without damaging the pressboard. The siding is sound and generally free of damage, no flaking paint, just faded.

I can test the pressure washer this afternoon, but though I would ask first, as I am sure this is common in many area. Fortunately, this type of climbing ivy is not terribly common here.


Thanks

Jamie

Thanks. I have a little easy to handle random orbit that I upgraded to for sanding cabinets, but have used it on several things and found it is pretty tough. I'll give it a go on the siding this afternoon.

Thanks much;
Jamie

We just completed a home covered with ivy. We used the rotating tip in the pressure washer & it did a great job. It was a brick & wood home though & doubt I would try that on press board siding residence. Scrape & sand.
