I think a good washing is a very good idea. It gets rid of dirt, dust, oxidized paint and leaves a surface ready for additional prep or painting. This is true when the power washing is done right. Yes, this type of washing can cause problems. There are dangers, damage to siding or injecting water under the siding.
