Patio was new 2014 with the normal colors a mix of pink and gray. Was left unattended in south west Florida during July to Sept 2015. 30% turned black. Looks like mold. Patio adjacent to back of house facing north.

    I vote for the power wash. Try first in a small area with just water.

    I live in Florida, and have to power wash about twice a year...Summer months accumulate the worst...your pavers will look new after power washing, and you probably won't need any additives to power washer...I bought one of the most inexpensive power washers about $100.00, and it works great, is time consuming though...but hey, it least it's nicer than shoveling!

    In the absence of a power washer, bleach works wonders.

    give a double thought to anything containing bleach. It will effect surrounding grass and plants through soil absorption or slash back

    There is a product called Wet and Forget that can be bought on line. It works and has a residual action to prevent future stains.

    I would first try to power wash it away. If that doesn't remove the problem, try a biodegradable cleaner and a deck brush and try scrubbing it away.
