How To Keep Your Laserlight / Polycarbonate Cleaner For Longer
Treating Laserlight Sheets
Laserlight sheets are excellent for pergolas, verandas and garden sheds to light natural let in, however overtime they tend to attract moss and lichen growth. This limits light getting in and looks very unsightly. Using conventional pressure cleaning, you run the risk of damaging the laserlight by putting holes in it, thus having to be replaced.
Most homeowners think the only way to maintain the sheets is to high pressure clean or even to replace, which can be costly. By moss treating instead of pressure cleaning, we are able to kill the lichen which will break down and wash away.
Moss & lichen growth can cause blockages on the overlap and prevent good water run off, which can lead to leaks. Moss Roof Treatment is a less expensive way to maintain the life of your sheets.
Soft Application & Prevents Regrowth
Moss Roof Treatment is perfect for laserlight roof surfaces due to its soft application that kills the moss and lichen, applied under medium pressure to fully treat the roof.
Moss Treatment Works Alongside Other Roof Works
Repairs to Laserlight / polycarbonate sheets is limited if it is cracked or has holes, replacement of the sheets is necessary, but if the roof is just mossy then treating is the softest option to prevent any damage.

Progressive Results After Moss Roof Treatment
What happens to moss after being moss treated:
Within the first 2-3 weeks the moss, mould & lichen changes to a yellow/brown colour signifying that it is dying/dead.
Slowly, more and more moss & lichen will begin to break down, wash away. From underneath looking up it may look the same, but in time you will notice it breaking down.
Having a flat pitch it may appear that nothing is happening quickly, but some good heavy downpours will help shift the dead moss and lichen.
Once the moss is dead and the sheets are free of lichen it will continue to break down any spores to keep the sheets clean
Dying moss & spores
Moss flaking & breaking down
Black stain will be disappearing
Moss crumbing away
