    Default Looking for ideas

    Hi guys, looking for some ideas to improve the look of the rear of the house. Some of the white bricks have mould stains which I have tried bleaching with some luck but are still visible.
    Not sure what to do with the section under the powerbox and then there is the power box.

    You could try wet and forget for the mould.

    Pressure cleaner and then Benzalkonium chloride, not bleach.
    Wet and forget or the cheaper version 30 second roof treatment. make sure it contains benzalkonium and not sodium hypochlorite.

    If it's any consolation, that is the look of most houses from wollongong to newcastle and will be till the next year when we go back to El Niño weather, with good drought spells.
    Enjoy present pleasures in such a way as not to injure future ones.

    Thanks, guys for the replies, can't use a pressure cleaner as the bricks are too soft.
    I am going to try the "wet and forget", that stuff is expensive @ $65 for 2L.
    I will report back on the outcome.

    Thanks
