Sunbrella Mold

The underside of our sunbrella cockpit enclosure seems to be growing mold, presumably because of the cool, damp weather. I would appreciate some ideas how to clean it up and maybe even keep it from returning?

Re: Sunbrella Mold

Clean it.


Waterproof it. This will speed drying.


Spray the underside with "Wet and Forget" (diluted). This is BAC and it will kill the mold and prevent the return. Same as the active ingredient in antibacterial soaps. Reapply as needed. Handy in damp lockers and such as well.
