Use Apollo Paints Cleanex (Exterior Surface Cleaner) diluted with equal amount of water and apply with brush or roller, after 45 to 60 minutes wash with water, so that surface is completely free from algae or any other growth. If the surface has the tendency of repeated algae growth, use Apollo Paints Biowash Anti Algal/fungal solution, diluted with equal volume of water and apply on surface which will inhibit further growth of algae. Ensure that all water leakages/seepages are repaired before painting.
