Moss and Algae can add a certain charm to pavers,  but don’t be fooled by the English cottage inspiring look-it can turn pavers slippery and be down-right dangerous. Tune in for the best ways to get rid of this hazard.

  • Moss and Algae love dark, damp spaces, so these should be the first places on your check-list.
  • You can get rid of it with a high pressure hose, but there are also cheaper, and sometimes easier ways to do it right now.
  • Some bleach and a stiff bristled broom can also do a great job-mix up one part bleach to ten parts water in a watering can. Water the pavers with the solution, and then leave for ten minutes. Upon returning, scrub down the area with the broom, and once the algae and moss has been swept up, rinse down the area with water.
  • An even easier way to rid pavers of moss and algae is to simply boil the kettle, and pour the boiling water on to the pavers. Follow up with a brush with a stiff broom.
