Removing Black and Green Mold on Siding & Deck

Our vinyl siding and decks tend to need a good cleaning every few years, we get both black and green mold. Previously I had been doing this myself with a pressure washer I would pre treat the decks with a bleach water mix but use only water on the siding. It was hard work and took me a few days to do it by myself. A couple of years ago I won an exterior house from a Facebook contest from from a local company to clean my siding. The guy walked around the house once with a low pressure hose spraying on some kind of cleaner. Then walked around a second time with a low pressure hose with a water rinse. To me it looked like magic because in the past I was using back breaking brute force to get the mold off. It took this guy less than 20 minutes to do the siding and another 20 or 30 mins to do the deck. House is in need of another cleaning this year and I'd like to do it myself. What was the magical cleaner concoction that he used that only had to sit on the siding for 10 minutes or so before it melted all the mold away and cleaned off with a quick water rinse?
