Does anyone know someone who can eradicate the mold on my deck and then paint? And, does Comex carry a Lime Prime product, or something similar to help prevent mold? Thanks :)

Greetings Mexcelia, your deck in question, concrete,tile,?? i have had the same issue. A pail of water w/ a cup of bleach and a long handle hard bristle brush. Not only will it take care of the mold but will also clean out the fine dust and dirt particles that should not be there prior to paint. Then rinse with clean water. Let it dry several days before applying any surface color or primer. You don't want any remaining moisture under the top coat. Any good paint dealer will carry the mold resistant paint. I perform the bleach clean each 6 to 8 weeks, not only retards the mold but keeps the paint looking fresh. This is just my way, others may have similar or different thoughts??

Thanks for the info Coz, and my deck is concrete, quite large, and often damp in certain areas all the time........I have used the bleach and scrubber, but it seems to come back fairly quickly......sprayed just white vinegar yesterday after the bleach scrub to see if that deters............think I can just paint in between treatments?

We use the power washer on our sidewalks. Not sure if you can do that with your deck or not but works great...We needed to do it after all of the rain we have had and looks clean now.....Hope this can help

You know, that's an idea.........my landlord has one, think I'll see if I can borrow it, the deck is quite large and it seems as soon as I finish one area another begins............now that my mural is almost finished I want the rest of the deck/garden area to look nice (and be a healthy environment) as well, thanks
