Fall has unofficially begun, and along with the hot cider and football games come chillier temperatures and extra rainfall. But did you know that you can put fall’s wind and rain to work cleaning ugly moss, algae, lichen, mold and mildew off or your deck, roof, and other outdoor surfaces?
Let the rain and Wet & Forget Outdoor do all the work while you catch your favorite team on TV! Read on to find out how.
Put Autumn’s Rain to Work Cleaning your Deck
Whether your deck’s made of wood, vinyl, metal, composite decking or another material, it can fall victim to ugly moss, lichen, algae, mold and mildew growth.
And some of these growths are more than mere eyesores for your deck: moss and lichen can damage some types of decking, and algae, mold and mildew can make your deck dangerously slippery.

Keep your Roof Moss-Free and Looking Great
Your roof isn’t just a key facet of your home’s appearance; it’s also all that stands between your home and the elements, protecting your biggest investment from expensive water damage.
When invasive moss moves in on your roof, your home’s risk of water leaks goes up. That’s because moss likes to grow in the spaces between and underneath shingles, pushing them out of place as it grows and separating the shingles from the roof’s membrane, which allows water to reach where it doesn’t belong.
Lichen is also a risk to some types of shingles; click here to learn more about protecting your roof from potentially harmful growths.
Wet & Forget Outdoor’s gentle formula works with autumn’s wind and rain to eliminate moss, lichen, black algae, green algae, mold and mildew on your roof with no scrubbing needed.
Wet & Forget Outdoor won’t corrode your downspouts like bleach can, and it won’t damage your shingles or rain gutters like pressure washing can.

Let those Showers “Scour” your Concrete!
Concrete surfaces such as your porch, sidewalk or driveway can also fall prey to algae, moss, lichen, or mold and mildew growth. Black algae is especially notorious for ruining concrete’s appearance, because black algae has a protective coating that allows it to grow even in the sunniest areas such as on sidewalks and rooftops.
It has a black or charcoal-gray color and can be solid-patterned, or have a streaked or blotchy appearance that makes your concrete look like someone has rubbed soot on it. Black or green algae, as well as mold and mildew, can also become dangerously slippery, and moss or lichen can damage concrete.

Beautify your Patio or Pavers
Patios and pavers can also be prime real estate for moss, green algae, and mold and mildew where there’s partial shade, black algae in sunny spots, and lichen all over.
Cleaning with bleach requires scrubbing, can kill your grass, and allows growths to stick around in nooks and crannies where your scrub brush can’t reach. Pressure washing is a messy hassle, and neither bleach nore pressure washing does anything to keep growth from coming right back.
