The treatment products are designed to destroy micro-organisms, parasites embedded in the bases.
They are recommended for all types of paving such as self-locking slabs, natural or reconstituted stone, unrefined concreate….

Algimouss advice for the treatment of your paving / terrace :
The application of treatment products is recommended on the bases that have been cleaned beforehand that mainly contain micro-organisms, green deposits and lichens.
Our treatment products have a base of biocide that completes cleaning and allows a preventative effect to be had over time. They are intended to thoroughly eliminate all parasitic organisms or substances.

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

In order to thoroughly eliminate the micro-organisms from your paving / terrace, Algimouss advise that you apply the Algidal product, exterior paving treatment.

Protect your terrace from atmospheric attacks

The Algimouss range of waterproofing prevents water, oil and greasy substance penetration into absorbent materials.

Algimouss’s recommendations for the protection of your paving / terrace :
The application of a waterproofing product on your paving / terrace allows protection against ice, bad weather and limits the encrustation of stains. The long-term protection products increase U.V. resistance whilst letting the materials breathe because they do not form a film.

Algifob+ water and grease proof paving and terracotta floors,
Algifob+ wet effect waterproof pacing and terracotta floors.

Protect your terrace from atmospheric attacks in 4 stages:
