Trailer cleaner needed

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I did a search on the forum for a cleaner that can remove that green stuff that seems to grow on your house or trailer. I could not find anything but I remember seeing something about it a few years ago on the forum. My sons trailer needs to be cleaned up. Does anyone have a home made recipe ? Bleach and water ? There are some areas that you can not get your hands at. Is there a cleaner that can be spayed on and then risen off with water ? Looking for ideas.

 

Thanks for your help,

Al

I've always added a few oz of bleach to my 5G bucket of soapy water when washing all of my RV's. It kills that mold and mildew on everything, including the awnings and vinyl time that covers screw heads, and the roof. I do make sure I rinse thoroughly though.

That is also my approach. The amount of chlorine bleach is sketchy in my experience, but I probably use about 1/4 cup per gallon of water on the steel of our house here (our home-base is a steel building) and about half of that for the RV. The person who put me onto this also suggested Awesome All Purpose Cleaner from the Dollar Store. I used a strong mixture of it and the chlorine bleach on the north side of our building just last week with marvelous results. I applied the mix with a pump up sprayer like you would use to spray a garden, then allowed it to sit for about 1/2 hour to kill the fungus that causes the green, then used a hose nozzle to wash it all off. It did a great job and the fellow who put me onto the process showed me where his was done a couple of months ago and it still looks new, while the neighbor who used a pressure washer is getting ready to do his again because it is growing back.

I've been using Simple Green with good success. Not has harsh as bleach. You need to wax the sides afterwards.

Humm, I don't have to rewax with the mixture I use.
