Now that it’s nice and warm outside, it’s fun to enjoy your garden and take long walks outdoors. What’s not so nice is when you notice ugly growths like moss, algae, lichen, mold or mildew on your bricks, driveway, fence or deck. Wet & Forget Outdoor eliminates these stubborn outdoor growths with no elbow grease needed, and keeps them from coming back for a year or more in most cases. You won’t believe how easy it is! Read on to find out more.
1. Green Algae
Green algae is a smooth, green, simple plant that can grow on any surface where there is moisture and indirect sunlight. It likes to grow on the north side of your house, or on a shaded part of your roof or deck, or other areas that don’t get a lot of direct sunlight. If left unchecked, green algae can completely take over an area, like what happened to Jeff’s home on humid Cape Cod.
Bleaching and pressure washing do nothing to keep green algae from growing right back again, trapping you in a cycle of cleaning and re-cleaning. Wet & Forget Outdoor wipes out green algae with no scrubbing needed, and keeps it away for a year or more in most cases. Just spray and leave! Click here for instructions.
2. Black Algae
Black algae has a protective capsule that gives it its dark color and protects it from the sun, so that it can grow even in the sunniest areas, such as on rooftops, sidewalks and driveways. It has a sooty gray or black appearance and can be solid-colored, or appear in streaks or splotches. Although it is a growth, it tends to make the area look dirty. Black algae can really ruin a surface’s appearance, as it did to Gilbert and Carol’s sidewalks. Black algae is tough to get rid of, and takes a lot of pressure washing or scrubbing with bleach, which can cause wear and tear on the surface you’re cleaning. Also, black algae can start growing again the moment you finish cleaning with bleach or a pressure washer.
Wet & Forget Outdoor gets rid of black algae with no scrubbing or pressure washing needed. Wet & Forget’s gentle, non-caustic formula works with the wind and rain to remove black algae over time, leaving the surface clean and algae-free for a year or more in most cases. Just spray and leave! Click here for instructions.
Moss is a green, carpet-like simple plant that can grow on a wide variety of outdoor surfaces, such as roofs, driveways, decks, and fences. It not only looks bad–its root-like structures can cause asphalt shingles to shed their protective granules, and cause shingles to separate from the roof’s membrane and lead to leaks. On driveways and sidewalks, moss can grow in cracks and cause cracking and crumbling to worsen. Moss can also cause pitting on some types of decking. Bleaching and pressure washing can damage some surfaces, and will do nothing to keep moss from coming back.
Wet & Forget Outdoor kills moss and causes its root-like structures to release their grip on the surface where it’s growing. Wet & Forget Outdoor also keeps moss from coming back for a year or more in most cases! Click here for instructions.
Lichen is a scaly growth that can live on just about any outdoor surface, including glass. It is very difficult to remove, and can cause pitting on many surfaces. Removing lichen with bleach requires a lot of difficult scrubbing that can cause damage to some surfaces, and removing lichen with a pressure washer is also a lot of work. Lichen can start growing back almost immediately after you remove it with bleach or a pressure washer.
Wet & Forget Outdoor removes lichen with no scrubbing, scraping, bleaching or pressure washing needed. Just spray and leave, and the lichen will die and fall away over time. It’s that easy! Click here for instructions.
5. Mold and Mildew
“Mold and mildew” are words we use to talk about disgusting, smelly fungal growth that can occur inside or outside your home. When the problem’s outdoors, Wet & Forget Outdoor is the answer. Judy had tried almost everything on her mold-infested canvas awning, and she thought she was going to have to buy a new one. Then she tried Wet & Forget Outdoor, and the mold is history!
