Green Mould, Moss and Algae, Removal and Control

The Green Team offer a Green Mould, Moss and Algae Control service. This service is predominately used to control Green Mould, Moss and Algae growth on stone, concrete, tarmac, asphalt and gravel surfaces, i.e. tennis courts, sports courts, school playgrounds, paths and pavements. We can also treat flat roofs, wooden fencing and decked areas.

Moss is a very difficult to eradicate plant, often unsightly and a potentially dangerous slippery nuisance. Moss is a Bryophyte (a non-vascular plant, which photosynthesises light and absorbs nutrients from the air, not from roots). They do not have proper roots, but have threadlike rhizoids that anchor them to their substrate. Moss propagates asexually by slowly propagating spores. Propagation rapidly increases when mosses cross-pollinate, culminating in the pods releasing potentially millions of spores enabling the moss to spread exponentionally if left unchecked.

The Green Team Green Mould, Moss and Algae Control service is used to clear moss on most hard standings and artificial sports surfaces. We can also provide a selective moss control service (ferrous sulphate or ferrous ammonium sulphate) on lawns, turfs and grass areas.

When treating moss, we recommend that the ambient air temperature is above 10 Celsius and that rain is not anticipated for several hours after application.

Utilising highly effective methods and proven technology, The Green Team will advise you on the most suitable moss and algae control program to meet your requirements.

All operatives are fully trained and NPTC certified in the safe use of pesticides (PA1, PA6 and PA06A), all staff are supplied with PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) as per current legislation. Risk and COSHH Assessments are always carried out and pesticide application records are completed for each application.

When possible, The Green Team use environmentally friendly products. Our moss control products are suitable for use on all external surfaces, require no rinsing and degrade rapidly, leaving no long-lasting environmental footprint. During any application process we adhere to very strict health and safety guidelines and environmental policy.
