Brick is a gorgeous, long-lasting material that adds value to your home.

For all bricks:
Wet & Forget works on any color of brick, including red bricks. Check out the photo above to see the awesome results one homeowner got using Wet & Forget Outdoor to remove algae from his red brick patio. Thanks for the photo! Wet & Forget Outdoor is ideal for painted bricks, too.
For algae, mold or mildew:
In a pump-up garden sprayer, mix 1 part Wet & Forget with 5 parts water. Thoroughly saturate the affected area at a time when the bricks will have 4 to 5 hours to dry before the chance of rain. Then relax, and let Wet & Forget do the work for you.

For moss:
Mix 1 part Wet & Forget with 5 parts water in a pump-up garden sprayer. Spray the moss with Wet & Forget, allowing 4 to 5 hours to dry before the chance of rain. Be sure to soak the moss thoroughly, so the solution penetrates all the way through the moss.
For lichen:
Mix a solution of 1 part Wet & Forget and 5 parts water in a pump-up garden sprayer. Saturate the lichen with the solution, allowing 4 to 5 hours to dry before the chance of rain. Wait 15 minutes, and then saturate the lichen a second time. This second application allows Wet & Forget to penetrate the lichen’s multiple layers. It is best to treat lichen on a day that is not too hot and sunny, to avoid rapid evaporation and allow Wet & Forget the maximum time to penetrate the lichen.
