How to Clean Driveway Mold
LESLIE: Alright. Now we’ve got Art on the line with a mold question. Tell us what’s going on.
ART: Well, I’ve got this problem every time it rains, from where you water the yard. My driveway gets wet. I’ve got like a mold or a moss or something of a greenish color and I’m wondering how to get rid of it permanently.
TOM: Unfortunately, you’re not going to get rid of it permanently unless you have a lot of sunlight on that driveway.
ART: OK. Well, it’s right at the edge of my carport.
TOM: Yeah, you’re catching a fair amount of shade, I imagine. And you know, the issue here is that you probably get some organic debris that lands in the driveway and then it grows and that’s what gets it started.
You want to use a siding wash; a product like JOMAX or OxiClean. Apply it to the driveway, let it sit for a while and then you can pressure wash it off. And you’re going to have to repeat that, though, every couple of years unless you can get more light on it. It’s going to be a normal maintenance project for you, Art.
ART: OK. Alright. Well, I do appreciate the answer.
TOM: You’re welcome, Art.
