Do you guys use a house wash when powerwashing an aluminum sided house or just water. I am a painting contractor that offers powerwashing but have not done that many houses that I was not preping for paint or stain. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks Mike

We use a solution of detergent and bleach, but you have to be really careful about checking the condition of the siding before washing. We have a disclaimer because they're very unpredictable. Some areas that appeared very good will rinse off to bare aluminum. It's tough to check the upper stories during the estimate stage. Just my two cents.
