Deal with Mold and Mildew
Get rid of any mold and mildew on your siding, deck, and trim before the hot, humid weather arrives. An electric pressure washer works well on large surfaces, but you may have to tackle small areas such as trim by hand. Mix a solution of 1 cup bleach, 1 cup white vinegar, and 1 gallon of water, and apply it with a sponge or scrubber. Be sure to wear gloves, and avoid dripping the solution on any prize plants or shrubs.
If siding or trim needs to be repainted, choose a mildew-resistant paint.
