Professional Moss Removal Service Providers
Organic growths like moss, algae and mould are more than just unappealing for anyone having to see it. They also pose a risk to the structural integrity of a property. They will spread and weaken the surface they are growing on. This may not be an issue immediately but in time this can cause major -and expensive- issues. The Ideal Response moss removal service we provide will ensure that all of the organic growth is removed and the surfaces are left clean and appealing.
Common Places That Require Professional Moss Removal:
Similarly to our algae removal service our expert technicians will complete the moss removal service using industry leading technology and carefully executed techniques. They will arrive on site and assess the situation. Once the initial assessment is complete they will begin the moss remediation process.

While it may seem harmless on the surface, if left, it can actually go on to cause a lot of damage, especially to natural stone. The density of moss can drastically increase with changes to the levels of sunlight or mineral availability. What may be considered a minor problem throughout a large portion of the year can quickly become a potentially very serious issue depending on the season. For this reason we recommend that you hire an expert moss removal service as soon as you notice moss growth.

Large patches of algae on pavements not only act as a slip hazard, but also decreases the traction of the material it’s growing on, further increasing the risks of slips. This is particularly risky in high footfall areas, especially on public footpaths.
The Long-Term Risks of Moss Growth
Aside from the obvious fact that moss growth is very unsightly, there are more damaging effects related to it. Over time these effects can potentially cause expensive and in some cases catastrophic damage to your property.
Moss will retain a great deal of water, which if left for extended periods of time will begin to saturate the substrate it’s growing on. When a delicate surface is left saturated for long periods of time it can become brittle and crumbly. Over time, if the surfaces are left to further deteriorate, this could potentially lead to catastrophic damage. This will either be extremely costly to repair or in some circumstances unrepairable. Hiring an expert Moss Removal service provider early on will protect your property from this moss related issue.
Cracks & Structural Damage
Moss naturally likes to grow in dark, damp and warm conditions. Small cracks on the surfaces of your property provide the perfect environment for moss growth. Over time the moss growing in the cracks will expand and begin to cause the cracks to worsen and spread. Naturally, when the cracks begin to spread the moss will also spread, beginning the process again. If this issue is left untreated and you decide not to hire a professional moss removal provider the substrate will continue to crack and weaken. Just like with the water retention issue previously mentioned, the cracks will cause expensive structural damage with extremely dangerous consequences.
Fungus & Mould Growth
Moss also creates an environment that promotes the growth of fungus and moss. The damp dark conditions that moss creates will allow fungi and mould spores to take root and quickly grow and spread. Moss alone can cause issues to the surfaces of your property but fungi and mould are far more dangerous and will quickly deteriorate your property. It is essential that you look to hire a moss removal expert as soon as moss is seen on the surface of your property. Doing so will protect your property from the far reaching consequences of moss and inevitably fungus and mould.
