The last few days I have been inundated with phone calls from people dealing with mold and mildew on their concrete walkways, patios and driveways and wondering how to get rid of it. The grass and flowers love all this moisture. Everything is green and blooming INCLUDING mold and mildew. Not only is the mold and mildew unsightly but it is dangerous to leave on your concrete. Mold and mildew are actually living, growing plants that break apart your concrete as they multiply. Ever so slightly but over time a little drip of water can wear away a mountain just like the mold and mildew plants can tear apart your concrete patio, concrete walkway or concrete driveway. A little known fact is that concrete sealers used after the concrete is clean will help prevent the regrowth of the mold and mildew.
We don’t own our possessions – they own us. We have to insure them, clean them, protect them (or replace them). Concrete cleaned and sealed just makes one possession (your concrete) easier to take care of.
