Bruce, you're funny.
The dust and algae accumulation needs to be removed in my case because I'm afraid that it's interferring with the light. I need more light than shade. My greenhouse sits near the edge of a wooded area, so it gets plenty of shade, especially in the back nearest the woods. My phals like it in the back because of the dappled sunlight through the trees but my catts and dens up front are screaming "more sun!".
If my situation was similar to yours, I wouldn't have quite as much work ahead of me.
How much bleach per gallon of water would you suggest? I have plenty of air circulation, so I wouldn't expect the fumes to be too bad maybe.
Thanks for your reply and advice,
I need to remove the dust and algae accumulation. More dusty crud than algae.
I don't think just blasting the walls with a hose would do the trick in my case. I tried that on a small place in a corner and the stuff barely budged.
I'm glad you mentioned the possibility of scratching. I'll keep that in mind and be careful.
Thanks for your help,
Always test in a inconspicuous corner before commiting to the whole greenhouse - martha
