How long will Wet & Forget Outdoor take to work?
It depends on the type of growth and the intensity of the contamination. If it's a new growth or a small amount of staining you can see results within days. Otherwise, it may take 2-3 months to see improvement. In the very worst case scenario, where contamination is extreme, it may take 6-12 months to work.
