In 2001, I bought Behr Plus 10 Semi Transparent Stain to restain my house after it had been pressure-washed. Although this Behr products claims to contain mildewcide, it actually promoted the growth of mildew after it had been on for several months. What is the best method to remove the mildew and this product without breaking the piggy bank and/or destroying the wood siding?

I doubt the Behr promoted mildew on your house as the most likely cause is the mildew was not removed when the house was washed. Most people when they wash a house don't do it properly as the cleaner which is bleach and some type of detergent is not left on the surface long enough to kill the mildew, and that is at least 20 minutes maybe longer depending on how bad it is. It is going to be hard to get rid of the mildew now as you have stained over but you should try the Jomax product as this does a great job of removing the mildew. You could do this yourself as it just involves a pump up garden sprayer and a garden hose.

Jomax is a great mildew remover. Also, Olympic makes a product called Mildew CHeck which leaves a mildewcide barrier on the surface. I would use this product after a Jomax washing and then repaint. Hope it works out.
