Where And How Does Moss Form?
Moss grows in thick mats or clumps and thrives in damp, moist areas. The UK weather provides perfect conditions for moss to grow. When a porous outdoor surface becomes wet, it will be vulnerable to moss. Moss spores rapidly spread, meaning that if the infestation is left untreated, your surface will accumulate moss quickly. Roof tiles are commonplace for moss to grow, so using a moss remover for roof tiles makes sense. This can cause damage if not treated. Patios, tarmac, driveways, paths and any brick surface are all prime targets for moss. As moss can have a slippery consistency, it is a potential slip hazard. Our essential moss remover is a versatile cleaner, perfect for use on a multitude of outdoor hard surfaces. To ensure your driveway is safe underfoot, treat with moss remover for tarmac and watch the plant fall away.
Apply To Dry Surfaces
It is crucial to apply our moss remover to a dry surface to ensure maximum results. Make sure the area is as dry as it will enable the formula to absorb into the material thoroughly. This will give the full benefits of the moss remover and achieve fast, effective results. Moss will shrink in size when it is dry. This makes it easier for the moss remover for roof tiles to sink into the root of the plant, producing the best results. If you apply the product onto a wet surface, it will not have a chance to absorb. The moss will also be large and full of moisture, reducing the results dramatically. Avoid using moss remover for roofs if there is a chance of rain in the following few hours. Older roof tiles will be most at risk of deep moss infestations. This is because the elements wear away the protective layer of the tiles. You may need more than one application of moss remover if this is the case.
Removing Moss From Roofs
When using a moss remover for roofs, you should first assess how much moss is there. If the tiles are carpeted in moss, you will require a dilution of 3:1. Make sure all moss is totally covered in the solution so that it absorbs fully down to the roots. The best way to achieve sufficient coverage is to use a pump sprayer. The moss will begin to discolour and fall away over the following few days. To avoid dead moss falling into gutters and causing drain blockages, cap off your guttering temporarily after application. Once the infestation is eradicated, annual treatment can be performed at a more diluted rate of 1:10. Annual treatment is a rough guideline and will of course vary depending on the property. If you spot early stages of moss or algae, then it is time for another application of moss remover. To protect your tiles going forward, our essential concrete sealer is a fantastic way to prevent moss and algae growth.
Using Moss Remover On Patios, Walls And Driveways
When treating external surfaces such as patios, walls and driveways, it is easier to keep on top of. You see these surfaces daily so a cleaning routine is easier to establish, and moss growth will not go unnoticed. A dilution rate of 1:5 is usually adequate for these types of hard surfaces. Always ensure the surface is dry before application. The stronger the presence of moss, the stronger you will want the moss remover to be. Older surfaces will have more exposure to the elements due to the protective layer wearing away. These may require stronger treatment.
Moss remover for tarmac
When looking to refurbish a tarmac surface, using moss remover a few days before doing so is recommended. This will dislodge the moss, meaning a pressure washer will be more effective at removing it. If the plant remains rooted, it will be much harder to tackle, and the tarmac could suffer damage. To apply the moss remover, you will need either a watering can or pump sprayer. The product will not harm plants or vegetation, but it is best to rinse surrounding areas if it gets sprayed. Ensure any loose debris is removed before application and again once the moss has come away. To protect and restore the colour and appearance of your tarmac, a tarmac sealer is recommended. Patio Perfect offer a professional essential black tarmac sealer which is perfect for the job.
Our essential moss remover is made without the use of any acid-based ingredients. This makes it an environmentally friendly formula that is safe for use on outdoor surfaces. It will not stain or hinder your exterior surfaces in any way as all ingredients are carefully selected. This product can be applied any month of the year. Just be sure not to apply when the moss or surface is wet. Also, do not use when the temperature is exceptionally high. In high temperatures and direct sunlight, the formula will absorb too quickly without reaching the roots of the moss.
For long-term protection from moss contamination on your surfaces, Patio Perfect’s range of essential sealing products is the ideal solution. Sealing will form a new protective coating, making the hard surface less porous. This will mean the area is not prone to moss and algae growth due to the lack of moisture.
