Why hasn't the product removed all of the BLACK SPOTS?
There is only two reasons why the product hasn't been 100% successful, either not enough product has been applied to the contaminated area or is has been rinsed off too soon. NEVER rinse the cleaner off until all the Black Spots have turned completely WHITE. If most of the Black Spots have started to turn white but a few are still Black, apply a little more product. Always Do a Test Area before proceeding with the rest of the patio. Any problems please call our technical helpline where we will be happy to help and advise. 01300-345898
What is the Coverage of this product?
To work correctly we recommend not exceeding a coverage of 5m2 per litre of cleaner, this means a 5L container will cover approximately 25m2
How long do I need to leave the product down before rinsing?
Always do a test patch first, this will show you how long it is taking to kill the Black Spots and turn them white. It normally take 2-3 hours but in stubborn areas can be much longer. Any problems please call our technical team for support and advise 01300-345898

The ideal time to apply the product is on a day when the temperature is not too hot so that the chemical doesn't dry out. Earlier in the morning or later in the day will help achieve best results.
I have rinsed off and I still have some black spots showing, WHY?
There are a number of reasons why some of the black spot have not been killed and turned white. It is mostly due to not enough chemical has been applied to these more stubborn areas, or simply because it hasn't been left long enough on the surface. We recommend leaving a minimum of 2-3 hours before rinsing off, but that is only if all the black spots have turned white. NEVER rinse the chemical off before 100% of the black spots have turned white otherwise you will need to start again and apply more product to these isolated areas. If necessary apply more chemical to the stubborn areas and leave 4 or 5 hours, whatever is necessary to achieve the perfect results. ALWAYS DO A TEST PATCH FIRST, before applying all the product to your patio or paving areas. Any problems or questions please contact our technical helpline for further advice 01300-345898
Is this product safe to use around bedding plants and grass lawns?
Yes it definitely is, although this chemical is capable of damaging sensitive bedding plants and lawns, if you apply plenty of clean water to these areas just before and during the rinsing off process then the chemical will not have zero adverse effects to these sensitive areas.
What is the best way to rinse the chemical off?
Once all the Black Spots have turned White you are then ready to rinse the chemical off. It is very important that you do this carefully and safely, we DO NOT advise rinsing straight off with a pressure washer! This will produce airborne spray of neat chemical which if comes in contact with sensitive areas could cause damage. We STRONGLY recommend rinsing thoroughly with a hose first, this can be done safely. There after once all of the cleaner has been rinsed away you can then use your pressure washer to removed all the White Spots and thoroughly clean the patio.
Do I need to use personal protection whilst using this cleaner?
Yes, like most other patio cleaners it is always advised to work safely whilst using this product. We advise taking great care and to use personal protection, i.e eye protection, gloves and a mask where possible. Please don't be concerned, this product is safe if used in a safe careful manner, we always advise best safe working practice.
Do we need to treat the patio or just the contaminated patches?
You definitely need to treat the whole patio area, the reason being is even though Black Spots are only showing in isolate areas. The patio will have areas that are not showing but germinating lichen and these will show Black Spots in the future. If you only treat the areas which are showing Black Spots then within a few months the untreated areas will also start to show new Black Spot growth. Always treat the whole area, this will guarantee total removal of existing Black Spot and will neutralise any germinating lichen.
Does this product really work?
We get daily phone calls from customers asking us if this product really does work and will definitely remove the Black Spot on their patio? The simple answer is YES! this product will remove 100% of the Black Spot if enough chemical is applied to the surface and left to dwell long enough to turn the spots WHITE before rinsing off. Always do a test patch, if you are not achieving these perfect results then please call us 01300-345898 for further advise before proceeding and using all of your chemical.
