Question White Vinyl Fence - Mold -

We just returned after being gone all summer ... while talking to a friend on the lanai - I noticed part of our vinyl fence is green - assuming it's some kind of mold or algae ... has anyone else had this problem ? ... can you use a power washer on it since it's vinyl ? ... what products can we use to clean it - not only clean off the green mold - but a general cleaning too ... we live in Mission Hills - but I assume that other villages have this same fencing ... JAI

Mold is everywhere after the rainy summer we had. Yes you can pressure wash. Mix in a cleaner that will not harm your plants. Ace, Home Depot and Lowes have such.

Speaking of white vinyl fencing, anyone know where to get sections of the fencing in front of the patio villas?

When we first lived here, we didn't know about "needing" to power-wash the outside of homes. It comes from the heat and humidity. Needs to be done once or twice a year. There are folks who can be hired to do this! Oh...and you'll get mold inside of your lanai's as well.

If you don't wish to do it yourself, there are many power washing companies.
We use Egners and recommend them. 352-728-8357.

Simple Green diluted in a bucket of water and a rag is all that you'll need. It comes right off. You can hose off any residue or wipe it off with a second rag and bucket of clean water. You can power wash a vinyl fence without damaging the fence but if it's just a small area, I opt for the rag. It's quicker and cheaper.

I use a cup of bleach 5 gallon bucket and car wash brush comes right off.

Home Depot sells a product called Mold Amour sold behind the paint counter. It's a lime green quart bottle that connects to your hose. Spray it on...wait 15 minutes and spray off. This stuff really works. I did my entire house in less than an hour for less than $9.

Tilex and a water hose will do the job!
