A patio black spot remover and patio cleaner
Are you looking for a fast acting patio black spot remover? We can certainly help as our moss removers work on most patio surfaces. An effective patio cleaner should work as a patio black spot remover, moss killer and lichen remover as well.
Moss growth on a patio can be easy to remove by treating with Moss Clear or Moss Clear Pro. Moss will grow readily on porous concrete, sandstone or flagstones and a moss killer should get rid of the problem. Unless your patio is laid from block paving, moss growth on these surfaces should not be a problem.
More likely you are frustrated by your patio always ‘going green’ with algae growth or unsightly stubborn black lichen forming. These organisms only flourish where moisture is present and there are several factors as to how prevalent and intensely they form.
South facing sunny gardens are far less likely to be affected by moss growth than a North facing or shady garden patio. Certainly the type of material your patio is laid from is also a major factor. Concrete precast flagstones that were mainly laid up until around 2005 are relatively easy to maintain. Porous Natural Stone substrates such as sandstone, limestone and travertine can be challenging to keep free from lichen and algae growth. The porosity of most forms of natural stone, makes patio slabs vulnerable to the formation of algae, blackspot and lichen.
A very effect black Lichen remover
If your patio has just gone green and grubby, an easy application of Moss Clear or Moss Clear Pro will kill off any green algae. This can be done without the need for intense pressure washing.
Just dilute the biocide, then wet the patio area by watering can or sprayer and just forget. Over the next few days, you will see the algae and any moss start to go brown and disappear. Moss Clear and Moss Clear Pro will remove algae and moss without risk of harm to plants or pets.
For patios that have blackspot or black algae, a more aggressive patio cleaner may be required. A patio laid from Indian sandstone, limestone or another form of porous natural stone often attracts lichen growth. This lichen or patio black spot can be difficult to remove. If this is the case, a treatment with our Patio Clean Xtreme product will be required. Patio Clean Xtreme is probably the best lichen remover and patio black spot remover on the market today.
Keeping your patio clean
Patio Clean Xtreme will remove any blackspot and lichen and leave the patio easy to maintain in the future. The patio can be kept free from moss and algae using Moss Clear and Moss Clear Pro. Patio Clean Xtreme in comparison with Moss Clear and Moss Clear Pro, is potent, so read the application instructions before use. Once your patio is clean, if green algae or lichen start to form, just re-apply Moss Clear and Moss Clear Pro. These will act as moss inhibitors, so just leave on the surface and let the elements do the rest.
It is best to accept that to keep your patio in a condition you can be proud of, some regular maintenance is required. Now and again gently rinse or sweep off the dirt and muck that has accumulated over the previous months. Once dry, simply apply diluted Moss Clear or Moss Clear Pro as a moss preventative treatment.
