LESLIE: Marie in Rhode Island is with us on The Money Pit to talk about a cleaning problem. What can we do for you today?MARIE: What is the best product to use for removing mold from Trex decking?TOM: Well, composite decks, as good as they are, do tend to build up an algae that can get across the surface. And there’s a number of products that are available to clean that; one of which – which is real easy to find – is called Jomax, J-o-m-a-x. It’s made by the Zinsser Company. It’s available at hardware stores and home centers and …LESLIE: And does a great job.TOM: It’s basically a siding and a roof wash and a deck wash. And you apply this stuff. You let it sit for 10 or 15 minutes and then sort of scrub it and rinse it off and it does a really good job of bringing the shine back up to that deck.MARIE: Very good. Thank you very much.
