Removal of Moss, Mould, Algae and Lichen

Sorted Moss and Mould penetrates the surface killing the damaging organisms and they will them weather off over time. Be aware Sorted Moss and Mould may harm plants. Avoid applying where plants or soil around plants would be contacted by spray. If water is collected from your terracotta roof for domestic use, disconnect from collection prior to application and do not reconnect until significant rain (20 mm) has rinsed roof.
Sorted Moss and Mould kills and prevents moss, mould, liverwort, lichen and algae.
Terracotta is prone to the growth of algae, mould, moss etc. because its porous surface retains moisture. Terracotta can be further damaged by frost when the water in the clay freezes and cracks the terracotta. It is possible to treat terracotta with Kiwicare NO Leaks Red Brick and Terracotta aerosol (discontinued) to make it water repellent. This product still allows the terracotta to 'breathe'.
