How to Clean Moss Off Stone - Stone Cleaning

Why does moss form?

Knowing the conditions and exactly why moss starts to form is the first step in being able to protect your property from the matter.

Moss is created in damp and dark areas where it can grow on stone surfaces even where there’s no soil. 

Moisture is a key ingredient when it comes to the growth of this substance. Moss can grow on most surfaces as long as there’s enough moisture. So, if your stone surface is frequently being rained on or perhaps a water sprinkler is routinely sprayed onto it, making the surface damp, and leading to the growth of moss.

How do we clean moss off stone?

Our team utilises the DOFF steam cleaning tool to extract and remove unwanted matter, such as algae and moss.

So, what exactly is the DOFF cleaning machine?

This machine works by heating steam at a very high pressure but exerting it at a low pressure. The combination allows your stone surfaced to be cleaned without the need for chemicals, ensuring that your facade is not damaged during the process.

Therefore, the DOFF machine is the perfect solution to effectively and efficiently remove moss from the stone surface.
