Mold spores are everywhere, particularly outdoors. In humid climates, those spores find purchase on brick, concrete, cement, slate and even on composite decking materials. They feed on dust and organic particles hidden in the crevices of the stone. Then they begin to break down the stone itself —a process that can eventually require extensive repairs if the mold isn’t taken care of.
Ironically, mold grows best in damp shady spots. Since our patios and decks tend to be placed to capture shade, mold can go wild, especially since moisture doesn’t evaporate in these shady spots.
Many people try to tackle the problem of mold and mildew with bleach, however, bleach only kills surface mold. It doesn’t get down to the roots, nor does it prevent the mold from returning. In addition, bleach is a harsh chemical that is hard on the environment and not safe for use around pets or children. That’s why it is important to use a mold removal product that is environmentally friendly and highly effective and removing mold.
