I started my Spring cleaning and brought home a couple buckets of our Algae and Moss Cleaner. I had plans to clean the windowsills and back deck, but I realized I had never used it on my front steps and they had heavy green moss growth all over them. It wasn’t in a romantic English countryside way, but rather an overgrown swamp look. It was time to clean it.
I got excited as I know what this product can do. It’s an amazing, easy-to-use, safe cleaner for the outdoors.
Other cleaners that are peroxide based or like bleach, only change the color of the growth and do not remove it all the way to the root.
You could also pressure wash without a cleaner and see if the growth comes off, but that process only removes the exposed growth and does not remove the underlying roots so it will quickly grow back.
That’s where Romabio Algae and Moss Cleaner is perfect. It can be used on any outdoor surface that has algae and moss growth and naturally removes it at the roots.
It is the only cleaner that can be safely applied to a pre-painted surface with Romabio Classico Limewash and our other Mineral based paints. It does not cause discoloration.
The good news is applying Romabio Algae and Moss Cleaner is very easy. You can watch this video or see the steps below for how to apply.
Step 1: Use a pump sprayer or just a brush, and apply it generously to the surface. The key is the surface must be dry before you apply. It may foam but this is normal. Let the product soak into the surface and wait.
- Helpful Tip: If your surface is vertical and the cleaner could drip off, it is best to back brush after you apply it for maximum effect.
Step 2: Wait 2-3 days. You will see the algae or moss die and it may turn orange or brownish in color.
Step 3: Remove any remaining debris with a brush or power washer/garden hose depending on how much pressure you need.
And that’s it! Now my steps look amazing! Check out this impressive before and after!
To prevent further algae and moss growth, we will apply Romabio Mineral Shield as it is an invisible top coat solution for porous, exterior surfaces to repel water. We highly recommend it if you’ve painted with Classico Limewash as it’ll protect the finish.
