Black on Vinyl Siding

This Home has well water. Is this mold on the vinyl siding? We don't have a lot of well water around here and I have never seen anything like it. How would I clean it. Maybe F9?

Art,

I also agree with Doug Rucker. We see this quite often up here in the sticks on vinyl siding and dryvit. Most times we find it in densely shaded areas behind plant material that is situated too close to the footprint of the home. Last week we had to spray some dryvit with 4% to get it clean.

I had some of that on a house was last week. I did 2 rounds of house wash mix with 2nd mixa little stronger. Finally i hit it with roof mix and rinsed it quick. Then followed up with a coat of house wash mix and let it dwell. Seemed the roof mix needed to get the ball moving and the house wash finished the job.

Art, what would concern me the most is why it is so predominant on the first 3 courses of siding and the 4th is minimal than the 5th is non existent. A sprinkler head below the siding would have an arcing pattern from a sprinkler head. I wonder what you would find behind the siding?

We see that around here everyday. It's almost always easy to get off.

If it's organic I'm sure a strong house Soft Wash mix will remove it but I have never seen such a drastic change from one course to the next on vinyl siding.

I'm wondering if that's having some kind of moisture/heat reaction with the block foundation. Like maybe the house is very cold and the block is very warm or vice versa and there's some condensation under those first couple of runs.

Either way it doesn't matter strong house mix will clean it up. Might even take a couple of doses. I'm just speculating on the cause of it.
