Mildew is caused by moisture. Call it mildew or mold, bleach will kill it. Problem is bleach may change the color. Dilute the bleach. They also make an aluminum cleaner. Think it's another form of a bleach, smells like it. Menards and lowes sells aluminum cleaners. I use a strong bleach on my rain gutters once a year. Don't really care, it doesn't harm the white gutters. I've even used deck wash, very strong bleach.

You do not want to use chlorine bleach on aluminum. You will end up with a corroded mess.

I've used bleach on my aluminum gutters, facia and soffets, for more than 20 years, no problems. To clean my gutters, I take a brush on long pole and brush it on full strength. I don't even bother to wash bleach off gutters. White gutters are usually a mess as it is. These things are painted, yes if aluminum is not painted, will cause issues. Bleach or bleach like is the only thing that will kill mold. Pressure washer may look clean, but the mold will return real soon.
