Are there any specific areas I should check for moss, mold, mildew, and algae?

Roof and siding-

These are the two areas of your home in which moss, mold, mildew, and algae are notorious for inhabiting. Whether it’s tree shade or overhangs, moist, shady areas are the perfect areas for these icky stains to form. Are you seeing mold and mildew on your siding?

Outdoor furniture-

Outdoor furniture has endured a lot over the past three months. From summer storms to hot, sunny days, make sure they haven’t taken on moss, mold, and algae too! Clean up any green or black stains with Wet & Forget Outdoor Concentrate. Give your outdoor furniture a spray of Wet & Forget, and then give them a quick rinse with water the next day before use. Once they appear to be clear of any green or black blotches, give them some indoor space to hide from the cold. If moving them is not an option, invest in some waterproof covers to protect them from the harsh, winter elements.

Decorative yard pieces-

Keep your garden gnomes or gazebos looking brand new by taking the proper steps to care for them. Throughout their time outside, do seasonal inspections on them to ensure they are not damaged. If green or black stains are noticeable, use Wet & Forget Ready to Use to eliminate the stains. Make sure to rid any moss, mold, and algae off that surface before stashing them away. If stashing the decorative yard pieces away is not an option, also consider purchasing waterproof covers to protect them from the snow. 

Outdoor fabrics-

Whether your outdoor fabrics were being sat on or were used to shield the sun from your eyes, keep outdoor fabrics looking bright by keeping them clean. Spray Wet & Forget Ready to Use on smaller fabric surfaces and rinse it the next day or before use.

For larger areas like awnings or patio umbrellas, use the Wet & Forget Outdoor Concentrate to cover more ground. Since our product is bleach-free, you don’t have to worry about discoloring your colored awnings and seat cushions.

Which product should I use for each surface?

Decks, patios, roof, and siding can be easily cleaned with the Wet & Forget Hose End. For pool surroundings or outdoor furniture, use the Wet & Forget Outdoor Concentrate. When it comes to outdoor fabrics, decorative yard pieces and those other small outdoor surfaces, use the Wet & Forget Ready to Use.
