Home improvement experts recommend seal coating your concrete or asphalt driveway regularly to prevent premature cracking and crumbling and save yourself the expense and hassle of replacing your driveway before you should have to.

Protect your Driveway with Wet & Forget Outdoor

Disgusting moss, algae, lichen, and mold and mildew are more than just eyesores when they infest your driveway. Moss can accelerate cracking and crumbling; lichen can damage the surface of some driveways; and moss, algae and mold and mildew can all make your driveway dangerously slippery.

Pressure washing your driveway can worsen crumbling and wear away at the seal coat, and it makes a muddy mess. Caustic chemicals such as bleach can eat away at some seal coats and kill your lawn with toxic runoff, and bleach also requires scrubbing.

Wet & Forget Outdoor eliminates moss, lichen, algae, and mold and mildew with no scrubbing, bleach, or pressure washing needed. Just spray and leave!

Wet & Forget Outdoor’s gentle, non-caustic formula works with the wind and rain to wipe out these disgusting growths over time, and to keep them away for a year or more in most cases. Let Wet & Forget do the work for you!
