1. Beat Mold and Mildew Indoors and Outdoors
Mold and mildew can be a big problem both indoors and outdoors. Mold and mildew not only looks bad—it can cause permanent damage to your property, and indoor mold exposure has been linked to several health problems. Cleaning mold and mildew with bleach requires scrubbing and rinsing and only cleans the surface, which does nothing to keep mold and mildew from growing right back again.
Wet & Forget Outdoor eliminates mold and mildew on outdoor surfaces with no scrubbing, rinsing, bleaching, or pressure washing needed. Just spray and leave! Wet & Forget Outdoor’s gentle formula won’t harm the surface you’re cleaning or kill your lawn with caustic runoff the way bleach or other harsh chemicals can. Best of all, Wet & Forget Outdoor continues to work with the wind and rain to keep mold and mildew away for a year or more in most cases. No more scrubbing and re-scrubbing! Wet & Forget Outdoor also eliminates moss, lichen, black algae, and green algae.
Mold and mildew can also strike damp areas inside your home, such as the bathroom, basement or laundry room. Cleaning with bleach is a smelly hassle that requires mixing, scrubbing and rinsing, and leaves the surface ready for mold to re-grow. Wet & Forget Indoor Mold + Mildew Disinfectant Cleaner is ready to go right out of the bottle; you can forget about the guesswork and diluting that you’re used to with bleach. There’s also no scrubbing or rinsing* with Wet & Forget Indoor—just spray and wipe, and you’re done! Wet & Forget Indoor cleans the mess, disinfects, kills odor-causing bacteria, and leaves behind a clean, fresh scent. Best of all, it inhibits mold re-growth, so you have time to look for the source of the water problem. With Wet & Forget Indoor, you’re free of scrubbing and mold is down for the count!
