    Guys I have a client that wants a brick walkway treated. She has mold or mildew on the bricks that make is very slippery.....Besides powerwashing it, is there anything I can put on it to stop it from coming back

    I have had the best results with this system
    • Put Down Bleach
    • Go out to lunch
    • Come back and pressure wash
    • Retry if needed
    If that doesn't work I don't know what will. I have used that system many times.

    Bleach and P/W will be the easiest. I did my mother in laws walk way and man was it bad. I poured bleach on it let it set. Then Brushed it. No way did it even come close to being clean.
    So I poured bleach again let it sit and P/W'ed. Very clean now.
