Product Spotlight

So, we are going to focus on one particular product today - the Black Spot & Algae Remover. This product is perfect for this time of year when people start to think about tidying up their external areas, making them more appealing and getting them ‘Garden Ready’. The Black Spot & Algae Remover comes in a 5L bottle and is suitable for deep cleaning a wide range of outdoor surfaces including porcelain tiles and natural stones. Ideal for areas such as driveways, patios, terraces, pathways and yards. It is formulated to cling to surfaces and remove mould spores, black spot, lichen, fungus, algae and moss from other damp places. This product does contain a bleaching action so be careful of clothing and wear appropriate protection on your hands.

Dirt be gone!

We did a little demo test of this product and we were so impressed with the results. The area in question was a patio area of Indian stone that hadn’t been sealed before. The area hadn’t been power washed for a couple of years and there was build up of algae and dirt. We decided to apply the Black Spot & Algae Remover to just one tile to see how it worked as the customer is going to complete the full area themselves. We applied a small amount to the area, making sure we covered the tile entirely and left it to work. When we returned after a couple of hours, we could already see a colour difference under the product. We then used a watering can to wash off the tile and the result was amazing. We cannot wait to see the full garden cleaned and sealed, ready for summer!

Application is very easy and the process is simple to follow:

  • Make sure the area you wish to treat is free from any garden items
  • Ensure all loose dirt and other physical debris is removed first by brushing prior to application
  • Apply the product neat directly to the chosen surface – using a plastic watering can or light pressure garden sprayer can make it easier
  • Leave to absorb for 2-4 hours (the product will begin to fizz as it gets to work so don’t be alarmed)
  • Hose off thoroughly with clean water and allow to dry
  • Make sure you rinse all equipment that has been in contact with the product thoroughly with cold water

It is also worth noting the following:

  • Coverage from a 5L bottle is up to 25m2
  • The product can be applied to slightly damp or dry surfaces but cannot be applied to surfaces saturated from recent rainfall or if rain is due.
  • Keep pets & children away from area until it’s been washed down
