Typically, driveways or outdoor paths and entertaining areas make up the bulk of our call-outs. Often we will provide an economical solution as simple as high pressure removal of the lichen and moss contamination. Some of our more technical treatments involve the use of eco-friendly, biodegradeable chemicals that sanitize the surface inhibiting regrowth.
Lichens and mosses grow on essentially bare surfaces and create a more humid chemical micro environment. The attachment of these organisms to the surface enhances a chemical breakdown of the micro layers of the rock and will nearly always create an unsafe and unstable surface.
These molds and mosses also produce spores that can seriously effect the respiration of asthmatics or the elderly.
Friction Systems has a range of pressure washers, from serious truck mounted high pressure machines to smaller portable units for restricted access, or internal surfaces.
All of our equipment will blast away the problem and rejuvenate the surface. We use 20″ surface cleaner to get the job done fast, this solution may be all that’s needed to reduce the risk of slips and falls, remove the health risk and get the surface looking like new
