How to clean your decking in 5 easy steps.
Before we begin, you will need the following:
Watering can or bucket and soft brush
Firstly, you’ll need to work out your best way of applying the product to the decking. You can either apply it using a watering can or a bucket and soft brush.
Now you’ll need to create the formula. Fill your watering can or bucket with hot water. The amount of water you use will depend on the size of your decking. Take your Decking Cleaner and scoop 12-15g (roughly 1 heaped tablespoon) into the hot water and mix.
Tip: Don’t worry, once you dilute the decking cleaner it won’t harm your plants.
Your formula is good to go, you can start cleaning your decking. Apply the formula to the whole decking area using your spray or soft brush.
Grab your hard brush and scrub the formula into the decking. Once you have worked your way through the whole area, wait for a few minutes to allow our product to really get to work.
Finally, rinse off with any appliance, such as; a power hose or a basin filled with water to make your decking look as good as new.
5 Easy Steps to Remove Moss
Unsure how to treat an area of your house which is affected by the growth of moss? Check out our easy 5 step guide to kill moss and get your home looking great again.
Our Moss & Algae Inhibitor and Remover products are proven to be one of the best moss killers to treat growth on your roof, driveway, path, patio and any other hard surface areas of your home that is affected.
Tip: Before you consider removing the moss from the affected area, check the weather forecast and ensure there is no rain expected in the next 5-6 hours. Dry spell ahead? Then great, let’s go!
You will need the following:
- Garden brush
- Moss & Algae Remover or Inhibitor
- Low pressure garden sprayer or watering can
- Stiff bristle brush or a high pressure sprayer
If your moss growth is heavy, brush off any excess moss to ensure the moss stem is exposed. This will ensure the moss removal is more effective.
You will need to prepare your Moss & Algae Inhibitor or Remover to get as much use as possible by diluting it. Dilute the product into one of the following:
- Low Pressure Garden Sprayer (available here: https://buymossterminator.co.uk/sprayers/)
- Watering Can
If you are using our product to treat an area of ground with a standard amount of moss growth, then dilute your Moss & Algae Remover with a ratio of 1:4 (Moss & Algae Remover:Water).
If you are treating an area of ground with a light amount of moss growth, you will be able to dilute the Moss & Algae Remover with a ratio of up to 1:9 (Moss & Algae Remover:Water).
You’re ready to start. Each litre of the diluted solution you have made up will cover an area approximately 3 – 3.5m2. Begin spraying or sprinkling (depending on what appliance you are using) the formula over the affected area to start getting rid of moss.
Once you’ve finished applying the product to the affected area, leave it to dry for 48-72 hours and let our product get to work. Restrict child and pet access to the area whilst the area is wet!
The moss will begin to turn brown and dry out. Once it has become dry and brittle, grab a stiff bristle brush or a pressure sprayer and start removing the moss. Sweep up the moss, toss it in the gardening recycling bin and you are done! Leaving your house looking as good as new.
