Wet & Forget® Moss, Mould, Lichen, Black Fungi & Algae Remover has a unique combination of biodegradable selective surfactants for moss, mould and lichen removal on absolutely ANY exterior surface. Wet & Forget® Moss, Mould, Lichen, Black Fungi & Algae Remover is the safest, most effective way of removing these growths.
When diluted with water and applied, it immediately attacks those unsightly growths such as moss and mould. Each time it rains, this safe, cleansing combination reactivates to help flush away the moss and mould without scouring the surface it has infested.
Wet & Forget® Moss, Mould, Lichen, Black Fungi & Algae Remover isnon caustic and non acidic and contains NO bleach. 5L concentrate make up 30L product
IMPORTANT: You cannot use regular Wet & Forget 5L (blue) with the new Rapid Application hose fitting. It will NOT work as the dilution rates are very different!!
Visually, section your area off into manageable parts.
Spot spray the lichen within each section.
Leave for 15-20 mins (while it is still damp) and then respray the lichen and the entire area of that particular section to ensure the plant absorbs the Wet & Forget/Rapid Application thoroughly.
The first application is to dissolve the waxy surface. The 2nd spray will then penetrate into the roots.
This will ensure much better results for you. Remember that it will still take time to decompose and break away.
Will Rapid Application affect my pets?
Not under normal circumstances but normal safety precautions prevail. If they accidentally walk or sit in the product - wash their feet and bottoms with fresh water as a precaution.
If I am on tank water, can I use Wet and Forget on my roof?
Sure can. But you must disconnect the water supply to your tank for 3-4 weeks or have at least 36ml of rain to remove the concentrate. Wet and Forget has been used for over 35 years to treat biological growth on roofs.
Can I change the specified ratios given in the instructions for Wet & Forget?
Yes. If the contamination is extreme, increase the strength for a quicker reaction. However, if you have cleaned the surface previously with Wet & Forget and you want to give it just a maintenance spray, you can decrease the strength if the contamination is light. The cleaning process will still be just as effective.
Do I have to use Wet & Forget all at once?
No, but good planning is essential. Work to a pattern so you know where you have started and stopped. The product is fine if left in the spray container as it does not deteriorate when it has been diluted. Plus it will not damage your garden sprayer as the product is not corrosive.
How long will Wet & Forget last in the container?
Wet & Forget has unlimited shelf life. Always keep the cap done up tightly and the container out of reach of children.
How long does it take Wet & Forget to work?
It is totally dependent on the intensity of the contamination. If it is really light you will see results within days. Otherwise it may take approximately 2-3 months to see improvements. Your concrete may turn an orangy brown when the Wet & Forget is applied. This is normal and shows you have had a good reaction. The discoloration will dissipate over a short period of time and is not permanent. The good news is that when you use it again the following season, the clean up will occur within weeks. In the very worst case scenario where contamination is extreme, it may take 6-12months.
What is the dilution rate and coverage area of Wet & Forget?
Dilute Wet & Forget 1 part to 5 parts water. Every 5L pack yields 30L of product to spray. With this, you will get coverage of between 100-150 sq m depending on the porosity of the surface. ie painted surfaces will use lessproduct but porous surfaces readily absorb the product and therefore coverage could be in the range of 80-100sq m.
When is the best time to apply Wet & Forget?
On a cool, dry windless day and when no rain is expected for 4-6 hours. Often the evening is best when evaporation of the product is minimal. This will ensure that the surface to be treated stays wet with Wet & Forget for an extended period.
Will Wet & Forget damage my plants?
Not unless you are directly spraying it onto the plants. If you accidentally do this, then rinse the plants down with water from the hose. Or better still, protect them with paper or plastic to avoid overspray.
Will Wet & Forget remove the mould off my timber decks?
Most definitely! But if your deck is older and has never been cleaned, it may be noticeably blackened with the contamination. In this case, it would be advantageous to wait a month after the application of Wet and Forget and give the area a light brush with a broom or scrubbing brush with warm water to remove it. The good news is that you should only have to do this once and then the maintenance becomes so easy. Also check out our other product, Hit The Deck, for a more instant result (although it does involve more elbow grease!)
Will Wet & Forget get moss out of lawns?
Sure will! Firstly lightly water the lawn but not enough to saturate the moss. Do this late in the day when the sun is low so that evaporation is kept to a minimum. Dilute the 5L Wet & Forget 7 parts water to 1 part Wet & Forget and spot spray the moss. You may have to give it a couple of goes until you have it under control. At worst you may get slight burning on the grass but it will recover very quickly. Rake the dead moss out. then sprinke lime over the area as this is usually a sign that your pH of the soil is not quite right.
How much Wet & Forget will I need to clean my roof?
The average 3 bedroom tile roof is approx 150sq metres but because of the undulations of the tile profile the actual area is a lot bigger. Therefore an average tile/concrete roof would require 2 x 5 litre packs, depending on how porous the surface is and how much biological growth is present. For an average 3 bedroom tile roof with lichen you would require 3 x 5 litre packs depending on the total area covered with lichen. For best results mix the Wet & Forget and spot spray the lichen, leave for 10-15 minutes and then respray the lichen and the entire roof to ensure the plant absorbs the Wet & Forget thoroughly. the first application is to dissolve the waxy surface. The 2nd spray will then penetrate the lichen. For green moss and black mould one application is normally sufficient. Your roof will normally take between 6 & 12 months to come clean.
