How to Clean Green Mold From Patio Furniture
Patio furniture is a common sight on porches, decks, patios and backyards. Outdoor furniture is made to withstand excess heat, moisture, wind and anything else Mother Nature throws their way. Unfortunately, most patio furniture will at one time or another develop mold. Mold can stain your patio furniture and deteriorate it over time. When mold is found growing, remove it as soon as possible with an all-natural cleaner and deodorizer that will not harm plants, animals or children.
