Why Does Mold Even Grow There?
Mold usually forms on areas of your patio where there is little to no direct sunlight. You’ll usually see it from under the trees or places where rainwater tends to accumulate, thus creating the perfect environment for mold to thrive.
These areas also become very slippery if they get wet, increasing the risk of a slip and fall and minor injuries. If you leave the mold to dry, it can turn dark and make the patio look strange, almost dirty.
How Can You Remove Mold
Some popular methods for mold removal include power washing or even spraying a mold remover or inhibitor. Power washing can help remove the mold, but it doesn’t really prevent it from growing back later. Additionally, if you use this method, you need to be careful. If you use too much force, you can actually end up damaging the patio surface.
Professional mold removal solutions may be a better option since they can help prevent mold from growing back. However, be careful regarding which products you choose. Cheaper ones that rely on bleach may remove the color of the mold, giving you the illusion that it’s gone when in reality, it’s just hidden.
How Can You Prevent Mold from Growing?
Mold removers that don’t affect the patio are generally good solutions to this problem, as you can routinely spray the places where mold generally forms to reduce the odds of it growing back.
Additionally, you can also keep a close eye on your patio and keep it dry, to ensure mold doesn’t grow. For instance, if you have certain areas where water tends to accumulate, consider draining it right after a rain or storm, to ensure you don’t end up with a mold problem.
If it’s a shade issue, you may be able to trim some tree branches to allow extra sunlight to cover the patio. This can help reduce the likelihood of mold forming since it doesn’t like the sun.
