What is that “Stuff” on the Side of my House? Cleaning Dirt


Dirt, dust, and grime can do a number on your home’s exterior-especially vinyl siding, soffits, and gutters. Not only can it cause damage and staining, it makes your home look run-down and dirty.

There are a couple of things you want to watch for when you are dealing with the “junk” that has made itself present on the exterior of your home.


Algae is caused by dirt, dust, and grime that naturally accumulates on your home. These things cause algae to grow because it feeds on it. The stains can look green or brown. Long term effects could be permanent staining.


Mold and mildew can be caused by several factors: moisture/humidity, lack of sunlight, and dirt build up-to name a few. Mold stains will look black or brown in color. Mold can be dangerous for allergy-sufferers and can also cause structural damage to the home if left unattended.

What Can You Do for These Dirt?

1. Schedule regular cleaning with EasyPro
2. Keep trees and bushes trimmed back and make sure they are not planted too close to your home.
3. Maintain gutters and downspouts to prevent leaks and water damage.
4. Make sure the house has room to breathe (enough ventilation to keep moisture from hanging around on surfaces).
5. Check siding for damage, warping, peeling, and dislodging.

EasyPro specializes in the cleaning and removal of all mold, mildew, and algae from your home’s exterior. Yearly cleanings help maintain the clean look of your home’s exterior and keep regrowth at bay.
