June 22, 2007, Newsletter Issue #70: The Dangers of Water Behind Siding

Tip of the Week

Obviously nothing good comes from water behind the siding on your home, and it should be avoided at all costs. The siding is designed with weep holes that will let small amounts of moisture escape. The problem is they are not large enough to handle the torrents of water produced by pressure washing. When you have water flowing down behind the siding, wicking its way under the insulation, you have a world of trouble. Eventually, the moisture works its way into the framework of the home. You can end up with water damage to the home's interior, electrical shorts and circuit failures, mold and mildew and bulging siding caused when water gets into the particle board. Consult a power washing professional before you DIY power wash your home.
