Jan 22nd 2009 12:05PM Dan is right about bleach. There is a product on the market called Vinyl ReNu (www.vinylrenu.com). You can buy a DIY kit that has a great cleaner that will remove algae, mold, streaks, oxidation, etc. After cleaning you can apply Vinyl ReNu which will bring back the color of the vinyl making it look new and resist the growth of algae, mold, etc. for years. Good luck.
Jan 16th 2009 12:56PM Oxidation is a natural result of UV rays and other environmanetal factors slowly breaking down your siding. If you are seeing oxidation then your siding is also fading (unless you have white siding). There is a product called Vinyl ReNu www.vinylrenu.com that will restore the color to your siding and resist the oxidation for years. The same company makes a cleaner that is designed to remove oxidation, mold, mildew, etc. If you clean your siding and then apply Vinyl ReNu your siding will look great for years. Vinyl ReNu will also resist mold, mildew, algae, etc. growth. The company can also refer you to a contractor in your area if you do not want to do it yourself. We did our house and it looks great. It looks like new siding and we no longer have green algae growing on the north side of our house.
