How to Clean Moldy Gutters and Bricks

One of my fall maintenance chores that must get done is cleaning off the lovely mold that accumulates throughout the summer on our bricks and gutters. It's not the look we are going for at our house so once a year I scrub it off. This year I decided to work smarter and not harder and save my arms and shoulders days of being sore.

Attach the cleaner to the hose and pass over the moldy places a couple of times. Let sit for a few minutes and then scrub. Repeat a couple of times!
I used this scrub brush. Stiff but not destructive.
Now it's clean!
