Home vinyl siding often accumulates dust, dirt, and bits of debris from the natural environment. These organic substances stick to your vinyl siding, which leaves algae an opportunity to take hold and grow.

Green algae cling to outdoor surfaces by secreting a sticky substance. This algae ‘glue’ grabs on and holds tight

Wet & Forget Xtreme Reach Hose End makes getting rid of ugly algae growth on your vinyl siding easy.

On the driveway and sidewalks greenish-black growths and stains could be lichen or moss. Lichen often appears as flat, bluish-green crusty splotches. Whereas moss usually looks green and fuzzy.

Lichen is a combination of two or more organisms – usually algae and fungus. Algae and fungus team up to form a multi-layered growth that grabs outdoor surfaces and holds tight.

Moss is a green, fuzzy growth that often grows in the seams and cracks of shady sidewalks.

Moss sends out tiny roots. These roots can burrow down into your sidewalk seams and cracks, making them larger. This can damage your sidewalk.

Wet & Forget Concentrate is the perfect solution for eliminating lichen, moss, and green growth from sidewalks, patio pavers, wood decks – most any outdoor surface.
