Moss and Algae problems
Biofilm is a collective term for a group of microorganisms that grow on different surfaces. Moss, algae and lichens are examples of these microorganisms. Moss, algae and lichen pose numerous problems for homeowners as they grow rapidly on damp surfaces such as patios, driveways and wooden decking and are not only unsightly
These organisms produce mucilage which is a thick, gluey substance which adds to the slippery effect these growths have on driveways, patios, paths and decking, for example.
How do I remove Biofilm from my surfaces?

Moss, algae and lichen can be treated with these fast acting biocides to quickly kill off the live spores that are the cause of the problem. These effective moss removal products are used to initially kill moss and algae growth then again periodically for ongoing maintenance to keep your driveway or patio looking like new.
Patio Black Spot and White Lichen
Patio Clean Xtreme is the best product we can recommend and and which we know will remove ‘patio black spot’ which is a type of lichen that gets into and attaches itself to the surface of the stone. Even pressure washing very strongly, with a professional-grade petrol-engined machine will not remove these, because they are just under the surface. This effective patio cleaner is a very effective patio black spot remover and can be used on sandstone, limestone, concrete, granite and other forms of natural stone where you are likely to find patio black spot.
