(Black Spot Lichen & Algae Remover For Patios)
Black spots caused by black lichen and algae on patios is a major problem which until now has been an extremely difficult problem to solve. The black spots are unsightly and can appear on new or old patios, pavers, block paving or brickwork regardless of their age. These black spots are caused by a variety of lichen which penetrate deep into the surface of the patio and are notoriously difficult to remove by most conventional cleaning methods. In fact it is so difficult to remove that a horticulturist commented that "after a nuclear explosion the only living things remaining would be cockroaches and black spot lichen". He may have been joking but it only emphasises the practical difficulties in destroying this particularly virulent strain of lichen.
Pressure washing alone is not the answer as this method of cleaning is rarely effective in removing black spots in fact depending on the type of patio stone, heavy duty pressure washing can actually damage the surface.
Fortunately our chemists have come up with the perfect solution by formulating the product Blaspore (Black Spot Remover). Now we can safely kill and remove the black spot lichens without the need for the endless back breaking scrubbing with wire brushes and scrapers. Blaspore is very easily applied to the patio by brushing or spraying and then simply left to work for an hour or so before being washed or hosed away with clean water.
Blaspore (Black Spot Remover) can be used safely on most types of patio surface including natural stone, sandstone, indian sandstone and concrete paving.

How much Blaspore Do I Need To Treat My Patio
This is an important question but the answer depends very much on the type of surface, the level of porosity and the degree of lichen contamination. As a rough guide we normally suggest that 5 litres will treat up to 20 sq.mtrs. approximately. We also find that although by far the easiest method of application is by sprayer, some customers find that brushing onto the surface with a large paint brush gives the most economical method of application.
