    Hi Keith, do you have a power washer? You would need to get on a ladder so be safe, and be sure not to use really hard pressure it will make a hole in your siding. Be safe

  • To get it all off you really do need to get up there and clean it using ladders or a pressure washer.

    You can buy applications that are attached to a garden hose for cleaning. If you can reach it with a mop, that is a good method. Wet it and forget it is a product I have used successfully. Good luck and stay safe!

    You could rent a power washer or hire someone with one to do this. We see vans with them advertising all around town. Sometimes signs posted on street corners.

    there are numerous products on the market that you spray on and the sprayer goes up to 30 or more feet and leave it no rinsing or scrubbing, walk away and it works with the sun and wind to clean the mildew, mold and algae off siding and decks. You can find it at Home Depot, Lowes, even Sam;s. It's called wet and forget

    You can spray with a cleaning product like KrudKutter, Wet & Forget Outdoor, or 60 seconds. Check for plant safety, if that is an issue.
