Slowing mildew growth

The back of our house faces south and mildew grows some on the siding but mostly on the poured slab. I know I can't stop it, but after power washing, is there any product I can put down that will inhibit it? Thx

A regular washing is the best way to prevent it from recurring. A concrete sealer might help.

I've heard of people using Zinc strips on roofs to prevent this sort of thing. I wonder if there's a way to use this strategy on verticals?

Sealer on the concrete will keep it from getting as wet and help it dry out faster making it less prone to mildew but will also tend to make it slippery when wet.

The Wet and Forget I've already posted the website for will help keep it from coming back.

Sounds like a great name for a diaper.
