    Talking Green growth overtaking deck

    Hi, I have green mold or mildew overtaking my decking and concrete.

    How can I discourage it's growth without painting over it? Lysol?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Don't use bleach. Bleach should never be used on porous surfaces, as it's 95% water - which what molds/mildews need to grow. It will will only temporarily work. There are commercial products available at big box stores. After that, might try a water sealer to make your deck not so permeable. Let it dry out really good first.

    Quick run.......
    Colorox 10 parts to 90 parts water kills mold. Weed sprayer works well. Or call a carpet cleaning/Restoration company they have lots of fungicide that they use and get a bid or have them sell ya some as its pennies for materials.o
