Cleaning, Treatment and Protection for roofs
Eliminate stains and blackening from pollution from your roof

Algimouss’s recommendations for cleaning your roof:
If you would like to perform quick and effective cleaning of black pollution marks, atmospheric stains or in case of heavy soiling, Algimouss recommends that you use the Alginet roofs product, that degreases all types of basses, (roofs, slates, fibre-cement…).”

The cleaning products have an immediate effect, but of a limited duration. It is why this stage is essential to ease the elimination of the stains and micro-organisms that can be found on the base before the application of the treatment product

Be aware: The mechanical action by brush or rinsing at medium pressure allows the activation of the product. The stage is important in order to obtain an optimal result.

Green deposits, lichens and algae are eliminated in the base but the roots remain present in the materials.
To prevent and thoroughly destroy the micro-organisms, we recommend to you the application of a treatment product: Algimouss or a 2 in 1 treatment and protection : Algi202

Eliminate stains and pollution black marks on your roof in 5 stages:

  1. Dampen the base,
  2. Apply the Alginet toitures product neat,
  3. Leave to act for 60 minutes to 2 hours,

Eliminate green deposits, algae and micro-organisms from your roof

Algimouss recommends for the treatment of your roof:
The treatment products are recommended for roofs presenting moss, lichens and micro-organisms. They act from within material of the types: terracotta tiles, fibre-cement, slate or all other roof materials to thoroughly destroy all of embedded micro-organisms to their roots.

These products are applied on a clean and dry base and do not require rinsing. The treatment products have a base of biocide allowing the total elimination of micro-organisms. The treatment stops their propagation and permanently eliminates them.

Process of action:
Vegetal parasites are destroyed in a few days. First and foremost, you will observe a yellowing, then you will see their decomposition. The action of rain water allows the gradual loosening of the green deposits and lichens on your roofs, in a few weeks, or perhaps months, depending on the nature of the micro-organisms.

To thoroughly eliminate micro-organisms from your roof Algimouss recommends two products to you:
Algimouss, roofs, walls and facades curative treatment.
Algimix, roofs, walls and facades curative treatment, concentrated to be diluted.

Thoroughly eliminate the  micro-organisms on your roof in 3 stages:

  1. Apply the Algimouss product or dilute the Algimix product from the top to the bottom of a dry base,
  2. Never rinse after application, delay time: at least 24 hours without rainfall.
  3. Application temperature: between 5 and 25°C,

The treatment products can be applied to slightly dirty bases which mainly contain micro-organisms.
