Moss Prevention

Moss is a common issue that can plague nearly any type of surface that is exposed to damp, shady and humid environments in which it grows and thrives. Although it may appear to cause no more harm than just being rather unsightly, moss can actually cause severe damage to many types of surfaces if it isn't dealt with in a fast and efficient manner. Moss attaches to surfaces using root-like structures known as rhizoids and it is these that penetrate into the surface – causing physical damage and degradation. In addition to the damage caused by the roots, the moss will also allow water to stay on the surface, which is another source of potential surface damage. These facts, coupled with the fast growing and rapid spread of the moss, will cause hard work for those in charge of outside maintenance. In order to remove moss quickly and to ensure moss prevention, you should make sure to buy the correct cleaning chemicals for the job.
