Algae is a tiny plant form. It has no roots nor leaves. As a result, it can grow on almost any surface. Algae thrives in places that are damp and have strong sunlight. Therefore, the external facade of buildings, roads, and walls are perfect habitats for algae to spread in ideal conditions.

In sunny and damp Singapore, algae is common problem in most homes. Algae are usually characterised as green to blackish marks on walls, roofs, and external facade of buildings, and external pipes.

Mold generally occurs in damp areas. It is, at best, an unsightly nuisance and, at worst, a health hazard. If you have mold growing on concrete driveways, brick walkways or paving stone patios around your home, the first thing to do is to make sure your children and pets do not have access to the area until you can remove the mold.

Why Remove Mold?

Mold spores can cause a variety of physical symptoms, including shortness of breath, aggravated asthma, sinus congestion, coughing, itchy eyes and much more.

Of course, there is a difference between common molds (like we see on food and sometimes on structures) and the toxic black mold that we hear about on the news. If you think you have toxic black mold growing on your paving stones, concrete or bricks, it is best to bring in mold remediation experts who can safely remove this potential health hazard.

If you have a bit of mold or algae on your exterior surfaces and would like to take care of it yourself, here are some basic algae and mold removal tips to help you get the job done.

How to get rid of Algae: 

We recommend the use of Algae and Moss Remover. This product allows self-active removal of algae, green patina and green deposits and protects against recurrence.

1. Ensure that the surface to be treated must be dry – algae grows very quickly when expose to water.

2. Use Algae and Moss Remover diluted with water up to 1:20 according to the amount of green patina.

3. Wet the surface well and evenly with the diluted solution.

4. Do not rinse and allow to work-in for a minimum 24 hours.

5. Residues should disappear without further treatment of the surface.

6. In case of stubborn staining, use a stiff brush or scrubbing tool, or allow to work-in for longer.

7. If necessary, repeat the application.

8. Clean working tools with water after use.

Mould has been identified as the cause of a wide range of health problems, including  watery, itchy eyes, a chronic cough, headaches or migraines, difficulty breathing, rashes, tiredness, sinus problems, nasal blockage and frequent sneezing. In rare cases, it has been known to cause death.

Mould grows extremely fast, and depends on water to reproduce and grow.

Effect of Granite and Marble Impregnation:

Granite and Marble Impregnation is a ready-to-use special impregnation that protects against oil, grease and water marks. Granite and Marble Impregnation helps to block dirt, moisture, paint, oil and grease, and makes cleaning easier. Staining liquids can be wiped off before they penetrate the surface. Granite and Marble Impregnation also protects grout against water and oil-based marks.

Application of use for Granite and Marble Impregnation:

Granite and Marble Impregnation may be used for all absorbent natural and artificial stones, such as polished, smoothed or sandblasted marble, limestone, travertine, Solnhofen slabs, sandstone, quartzite, concrete building blocks, terrazzo or slate; polished, smoothed, flamed or sandblasted granite, clinker bricks and ceramics or cotto. Granite and Marble Impregnation are especially suited for floors, walls, tables, work surfaces, windowsills, bathrooms – especially paneled showers – and kitchen counters

Direction of use for Granite and Marble Impregnation:

The base needs to be clean, dry and absorbent before the treatment. The more Granite and Marble Impregnation the stone can absorb, the better the effect. Apply the undiluted Granite and Marble Impregnation liberally, in an even layer – according to how absorbent the base is – using a soft brush or plastic roller. A second application  of Granite and Marble Impregnation will make it more effective, but only apply as much as the base can absorb. Let it sit for about 1 hour, then use a dry, absorbent cloth to wipe away any impregnation that did not soak in. Do not leave any streaks. The drying time is 3 to 4 hours; do not step on the treated surface during this time. The impregnation will take full effect after 24 hours.

Consumption for Granite and Marble Impregnation:

1 liter is enough for about 10-25 m², depending on the absorbency and texture of the surface.
