    Black Mold, Mildew on the Pool deck, How to treat it ???

    Hello everyone. I have an issue with black and green mold, mildew on my Travertine pool deck. Any suggestions on how to clean it up would be appreciated. The travertine was never sealed by the way. Photos provided. Thank you.

    Hey,

    Round-up (or the generic equivalent) for the weeds and it'll probably get most of the algae/mold as well. Whatever is left, about a 10-20% Clorox solution should do it.

    Nice looking deck.

    Interesting. I use round-up or the Walmart brand to kill the weeds. I never thought of it as a mildew, mold killer.

    Would a product like Tilex work?

    Tilex mildew remover is just a little chlorox bleach mixed with some caustic soda (sodium hydroxide). It's nothing fancy except the price
