The natural beauty of wood makes it a popular material for exterior constructions such as decking and stairs, fences and gates, cladding, and outdoor furniture. But wood needs careful treatment and maintenance to keep it looking its brilliant best.
Like any other external surface, wood can become discoloured by organic pollutants such as algae and moss. When this happens on decking or stairways it is not only unsightly but also extremely dangerous as the surface becomes very slippery.
Spores from algae and moss are carried by air and can land on any surface. If there is moisture or humidity these will start to grow. Although it is hard to prevent this from happening, thorough cleaning will remove the biofilm and help prevent new spores from growing back.
We can achieve a transformation clean on many wooden surfaces making them look as good as new. It really is the fastest and most effective way of cleaning mould and algae from wood and the pressure can be reduced to prevent damage to the surface. We can also apply a fungicidal wash to helps inhibit future growth before applying varnish to protect the surface.
