With the rain and high humidity in the past year, we are seeing a record number of homes with mildew and algae growing on exterior surfaces.
Mildew not only looks bad, but can present potential health risks. Here are a few ways you can control it.

  • Use bleach and water. One part bleach, 10 parts water to create a good cleaning mixture. Spray and wipe.
  • Form a solution of one part baking soda and one part water. Spray and wipe.
  • A solution of three percent hydrogen peroxide and water will also work to eliminate minor fungus growth.
  • Mix vinegar and water into a spray bottle. Spray and wipe.

Remember to always keep vegetation trimmed back approximately 2 feet from your home. This will help discourage the growth of mold, mildew and algae.
