This St. Paddy’s Day Keep the Green on the Shamrocks, not your Deck!

St. Paddy’s Day is the time to celebrate the Emerald Isle by enjoying everything green. Everything, that is, except for the slimy green algae or destructive moss that have invaded your deck.

Wipeout moss and algae with Wet & Forget Outdoor, and keep the green where it belongs: on the shamrocks, and off your deck! Read on to see how.

Green Menace #1: Algae

green algae
Green algae is a slippery, simple plant that can grow anywhere outdoors where there is sufficient moisture and partial shade, including the shady portions of your deck.

Not only is green algae an eyesore—if it grows on your deck’s flooring you can track it into your home and stain the carpet, and algae can also make your deck so slippery that it becomes a fall hazard for you and your family.

Green Menace #2: Moss

Moss is a fuzzy, carpet-like simple plant that can also grow on many types of decking. Moss thrives in humid, partially-shaded areas.

If left unchecked, moss can take over large areas of your deck and, worst of all, moss’s root-like structures can lead to warping and cracking in some types of decking.

Wipe out the Mess with Wet & Forget Outdoor!

You may see your neighbors grabbing a bottle of bleach or a pressure washer and heading out to their decks for spring cleaning, but neither one eliminates ugly moss and algae like Wet & Forget Outdoor.

Cleaning your deck with bleach requires scrubbing, and the runoff can kill your grass. Plus, corrosive bleach can slowly erode the surface of some types of decking. A pressure washer makes a muddy mess. Plus, the force of the water can knock pieces of decking or add to the wear and tear on your deck’s finish.

Worst of all, neither of these methods does anything to prevent moss or algae from growing back right away.

Wet & Forget Outdoor wipes out moss and algae with no scrubbing needed. Just spray and leave!

Wet & Forget Outdoor works with the wind and rain over time to wipe out ugly growths, so now is the perfect time to apply Wet & Forget Outdoor and take advantage of spring showers. Wet & Forget’s gentle, the non-caustic formula is safe to use on any type of deck, including composite decking.

Best of all, Wet & Forget Outdoor keeps ugly outdoor growths from coming back for a year or longer in most cases. Now you’re free to enjoy your deck, instead of cleaning it!
