I suggest a light solution of 3 quarts bleach, 4 gallons water and 1 quart of either Jomax or Simple Green.

Wash the siding with detergent or a deck cleaner, rinse with a hose, then brush on the water and bleach solution with a push broom, or broom head, on a long paint pole. Let the bleach liquid dry on the siding to leave a bleach residue behind. It will wash off with the first rain but will protect a bit longer. leach in one gallon of cold water to rinse on the deck.

Be careful with the bleach and Jomax mixture. Wear rubber gloves, eye protection, protect nearby vegetation from the bleach rinse and be aware that deep color TREX pigments can be affected and "lightened" by the bleach.

Here's a little more detail about the process in our Home Improvement Library: http://www.mosbybuildingarts.com/services/question.php/cleaning-mold-from-a-trex-deck-39
