Whatever it is, negotiate a $500 discount. That will almost cover the cost of cleaning materials and time.

Could be soot from a nearby truckstop, smokestack, airport traffic pattern?

Could also be living crud but having it on the deck could also just mean it was in the shade---not that the deck was leaking. If you want to check for deck leaks, that's easy enough to do, and might be worth doing in any case vs. price.

Mold and mildew CAN be beaten, but if it gets in behind things and into inaccessible places, that can be a real chore.

I used 3 quarts of water with 1 quart of bleach and 1 cup of trisodiumphosphate (TSP). Be sure to get real TSP as I have seen containers saying TSP and then in really small letters "substitute", and one had TSP as the registered trademark, but was not TSP. This really did a good job of taking off mildew (at least I thought it was mildew). Keep away from wood and aluminum and wear gloves of course. I used a brass brush as steel will shed tiny particles and stain the fiberglass.
