help - mold and solid stain peeling issues
Sorry in advance, can't figure out how to get links to import pictures. here is a link to the photobucket album:
I built a pressure treated Deck in Sept 08. left it bare till 7/09. Then stained it with Cabot's oil base solid decking stain. 1 coat on verticals, 2 on horizontals.

Looking for advice on stopping mold and repairing surface. What do I wash/scrub the mold with?
What do I do with the surface? Rent a floor sander and use a coarse grit?
