cleaning painted cedar siding


New Member
HI Guy,

Anyone having any suggestions on a cleaning agent to use on painted (not stained) cedar siding? Do you have to pw painted cedar at a lower psi or not, if so what psi. What would be the dwell time for the cleaner.

I just did a huge painted cedar home about a week ago. I used a bleach and jomax mix and it came out great remember to wet plants and grass first with a mist of fresh water before washing with any chemicals. The mix I used was 2 gallons advantage clorox bleach 1 quart of jomax and the rest of a 5 gal. container water. Make sure you soap from bottom up to avoid streaking the paint. It will streak bad on a hot day if you soap top to bottom.
