Using the right chemicals to treat moss and algae
Using the right chemicals to remove the algae, moss and build up is of vital importance. The wrong product can attack key compenents in a surface structure and which can be dangerous or cause long-term damage, especially in colder weathers if it has not been cleaned off properly.
At APT-ICCWe always use specialised environmentally friendly chemicals developed by our Cleaning Chemicals Division, including our specially developed algae free product (link). This product is not only effective in the treatment of moss and algae, but it also biodegradble and free of harsh acids and other chemicals such as phosphates, so is not detrimental to the environment.
After cleaning down and carrying out any repairs that might be necessary, we will apply a full moss and algae treatment product to the surface as this helps to prevent winter damage. We advise that this process is carried out on an annual basis to avoid excessive build up which can result in long term structural damage.
