Is moss and algae plaguing your concrete areas and preventing your home from looking its best? By constantly building up on damp and shady surfaces, moss and algae can prove to be common household pests. However, moss and algae can prove to be more than just unsightly, posing a health and safety risk due to creating a slippery surface. But what is the solution? This is where Wet&Forget steps in, with it’s simple and pain-free application.
Whether your concrete is part of a driveway, patio or pathway it will be susceptible to moss or algae growth. Occurring as debris and water sit on the surface for long periods of time, it will continue to build up and present safety issues until it has been completely removed.
There are many options for removal of moss and algae including either pressure washing, hand washing or harsh chemical products. These are not always the best options though as pressure washing can prove to be both an expensive and a time-consuming process – much like hand washing. Pressure washing can also cause more damage than it is worth, as it may damage any mortar or sand-filled joints that are a part of your concrete surfaces.
Common chemical cleaning products for moss and algae removal are usually caustic, bleach or acid based. Although these can get the job done, they actually cause more problems in the long run by damaging and discolouring your concrete, as well as harming any nearby plants. Therefore, it is best to avoid these products completely.
As a quick and effective cleaning solution that is free of bleach as well as caustic and acidic chemicals, Wet & Forget will get the job done fast. It breaks down the moss and algae over time with the wind and the rain after the first use, keeping them at bay for at least a year. Following the first application, any further maintenance will be a much shorter process, meaning you can easily stay on top of your concrete maintenance.
No longer will you be stuck in an endless cycle of cleaning and dismay over your concrete surfaces, as Wet & Forget actually eliminates the moss and algae. With the gentle pH of 8, which is as close to neutral as you can get, you also needn’t worry about the long-term effects on any pets. Just keep them off the treated area until it is dry and rinse off with fresh water if they accidentally come in contact as a precaution.
