    I've used hot water and bleach in an old Windex hose attachment spray bottle on my deck, and a brush. You could also buy Lily Miller Moss Out liquid in a hose attachment bottle that I've used on my concrete stairs.

    Hello! Products that eliminate mold are typically expensive and harmful to the environment. You can eliminate the mold on your lattice with something as simple as white vinegar. Poor about a cup of white vinegar into a gallon of hot water and use that mixture to scrub off the mold. Going forward, clean your lattice every now and then because it is out there in the elements and gets dirty, which will again bring on the mold. Good luck!

    I agree with the vinegar, it has excellent antibacterial and anti fungal properties, bleach will help getting rid of the staining, but the vinegar will kill the spores that let it come back quicker.

    We have a waterfront property that deck and white vinyl rails seem to be collecting moisture leading to lots of mold and greenish mildew which may be similar to what you are seeing. Power washing seems to take care of it.

    Try spraying it with 5% white vinegar in a spray bottle. (store brand is fine) Took moss off my brick wall, and the front of my shed. But it will kill the grass.

    I have three decorative fences and I also have it around my deck. Spray bottle with some bleach that simple. You'd only need a pressure washer if you haven't done it in years and it's completely green. Once you get it clean do a light bleach spray every 6 months
