Something about the humidity of spring brings with it the threat of moss planting itself on your beautiful bricks. Moisture brings moss, so if your bricks are in a place where there is a lot of shade and moisture, then you should check on them. Moss likes to grow in a variety of places as long as they are stationary, but don’t worry. You can get rid of this nuisance of moss so that your bricks can go back to looking clean and fresh. Let’s check it out.
You’re going to need some bleach.
Bleach is a great way to get rid of troublesome moss. Grab a spray bottle and fill it with some bleach. You don’t need to dilute it with water for the purpose of getting rid of moss. Now, spray the moss with your bleach and wait until it turns white. Then, go ahead and rinse with a hose of some kind. Make sure to get out of the splash zone, because bleach will stain your clothes and irritate your skin. This usually does the job as long as the moss is fresh or still in the process of growing.
For the heavy duty moss removal, you need more than bleach.
Getting rid of moss that has been sitting on your bricks for a long time can pose a bigger problem. You might need to invest in power washing technology to properly rid your bricks of their moss. You can also purchase moss-killer. These products are specifically designed to kill the moss, but feel free to consult an expert just to make sure you’re getting the right thing. Make sure to scrape the moss off of your bricks and place more treatment where you scraped to help keep the moss from coming back.
