How Do I Get Rid of the Green on My Siding?

Anyone with a white or light-colored house knows that cool, damp conditions are ideal for creating an awful green bloom on your siding. And your fence. And your deck. Here in the greater New Jersey area, removal is an annual event, because it seems to be everywhere, even on dark-colored surfaces that you can’t see. Here’s how to get the job done quickly and get set for a green-free fourth of July.

What is That Green Stuff?

The green stains blooming on your siding, decking and fencing is most likely one of five things: mold, mildew, algae, lichen or moss.


It doesn’t matter how great your landscaping looks if your home is shrouded in a green haze. Now is the time to learn how to get your curb appeal back.

Getting Rid of the Green

Don’t spot clean.

Cleaning just the green will leave the remainder of your home, deck or fencing looking dingy. This is definitely a case of all or nothing. Power washing is a good option that can easily, and quickly, tackle the green monster. Hiring a professional can make the job go even faster as they have the proper tools and skills to complete the job. Ask anyone who has ever used a pressure washer for the first time and they’ll tell you an experienced hand is the key to success.

Bleach Kills Everything! We Have a Better Option

So while it may eradicate all signs of anything green and growing on your surfaces, it will also kill anything green and growing in your foundation plantings. In addition to carefully protecting your landscaping (and desirable greenery) during the power washing process, we also use an advanced, environmentally-friendly solution that offers worry-free cleaning power.

Aim for Pretty & Safe

We can all see how that sickly, greenish cast detracts from our homes. We want our homes to feel beautiful and clean and inviting. But we may not realize that these green surfaces represent a safety hazard as well. You may not notice the algae on the surface of your deck or patio, but one step on a slick surface will have you looking down to see what’s happening.

An annual clean-up by a skilled professional will give you and your guests sure footing as you head out after the kids. Do your research to find a professional dedicated to both the local community and the customer, with the proper skills and experience to make your home sparkle. Just in time for July 4th!
