Stonecare4u Essential Algae Remover is the safe and easy way to remove algae from any ‘hard’ external surface. Highly adaptable, its biodegradable formula can be used on a multitude of outdoor surfaces including wooden fence panels, walls, paving and roof tiles. Simply dilute, apply by a sprayer and quickly watch the algae melt away.
If you have problems with algae around the home we have the solution. Stonecare4u supply a highly effective algae remover that will work on an array of external hard surfaces.
Wherever you find a porous surface that retains moisture for any appreciable amount of time you will invariably find algae. For instance, any form of paving and natural stone, wood, concrete, or tarmac can suffer from algae. In short, this not only spoils the look of the surface but can cause accidents due to its slippery characteristics. As porous sandstone has increased in popularity in recent years, these issues have become magnified.
Types of Algae Remover & Lichen Remover
Most forms of algae will readily flourish and adhere to substrates that retain any degree of moisture. The plant itself manifests itself in a variety of forms and is usually green or red in appearance. Its spores literally float around in the air, looking to identify permeable and ideally permanently damp surfaces to colonise. As a very simple plant, it ‘feeds’ on various minerals that rainwater can dissolve from the substrate. Consequently, this is then absorbed by the plant. As a result, rapid colonisation and spread of the live growth can begin.
Algae can be easily removed by using our highly effective products. In addition, it can protect against future infestation. An occasional routine maintenance programme is the key to keeping any external area looking its best. For instance, once initially cleaned and free of spores, if our algae cleaner product is applied in a diluted form maybe twice a year, any future problems can be avoided. You would usually apply Algae Remover at the beginning of Spring and in the late Autumn.
In addition, to simplify your future maintenance regime, you will find applying a sealer to the surface will slow down the process of it getting dirty. Also importantly, it will make it much easier to clean when it does get dirty.
Stonecare4u’s unique formulations of algae cleaner are simple to apply by watering can or sprayer. Certainly, results can generally be seen within a short period. With dense substrates such as limestone, clay and granite the effects might take just a few hours. On the other hand, it might take a bit longer on more porous surfaces like tarmac, wooden fencing, decking or old concrete roof tiles. Importantly, the ‘active’ elements within our products also act as an effective inhibitor. This can protect the surface for between several months to one or two years.
Acid-free Algae Remover
Our algae remover is acid-free, bio-degradable and will not harm any other vegetation or growth. Simply apply, leave and let nature do the rest. To clarify, there is no need to remove the product at any time, just leave it on the material and watch it gradually fade away.
For most applications, a ratio of 5 parts water to 1 part algae remover will be sufficient. If applied by sprayer, 5 litres of algae remover if applied by sprayer should be enough to treat around 100m². For best results apply when the affected surface is as dry as possible. That is to say, if the algae remover is applied when the surface is retaining too much moisture, it will be unable to penetrate into the substrate correctly. Consequently, this could adversely affect its performance.
