Does Wet & Forget work?

10.06.14
I recently used Wet & Forget on some wood siding and haven't seen results, yet. I sprayed it on the house about a month ago and wanted to see if I should give it more time or do a second spraying. Thanks for your help. BTW, based on everyone's response I wanted to post before & after pics either here or on my sight (www.homerepairtutor.com).

      Mary Absolutely, here's a video on how to remove lichen with Wet & Forget. It requires a second application 15 minutes afterward as the lichen has then opened up and exposed it roots.

    I use it and it does work on any mold (green or black). We live the Seattle area, very wet with lots of green stuff growing. You spray it on when its going to be dry for a few hours, then the rain washes it away. I saw results within a week on my painted

    My asphalt roof is too steep to walk with a tank sprayer. Does W&F work with hose-end sprayers?

    I wonder if anyone other than then vendor could testify to whether it actually removes lichen - moss, mold, algae are somewhat easier to deal with.

    I just spent a day re-sanding my patio and a couple days later followed up with a treatment of Wet & Forget. Now a few spots on my patio are very white, looking almost bleached. Not too happy about it and wondering what I did wrong . . .

      Moeller Wet & Forget works with the wind and the rain to gently clean the surface over time, please give Wet & Forget a call at 888-727-8524 so we can see what's going on with your deck and why it hasn't come clean yet.

    I live in Louisiana and my white roof is turning red from mold. Will this take it off? And can this be used on asbestos siding?
