Get Rid of Mold on a Screen Pool Enclosure
LESLIE: Barbara in Florida is on the line and has a pool-cleaning question. Well, really, the screen. How can we help you, Barbara?
BARBARA: Yeah. I’m here in Northwest Florida and I have a very large screen enclosure that’s just covered with green mold on it. So I’m looking for something. I’ve tried just a pressure washer and it’s not taking it off, so I need something – some ideas of cleaning it that’s also environment-friendly, because I do have plants around the screen enclosure.
LESLIE: Mm-hmm. And probably because of the height, you want to do it once and not have to do it again for a long time, right?
LESLIE: You know, Barbara, Tom and I have worked with a product called Wet & Forget. It’s actually perfect for your type of environment, because you have high mold growth because of the humidity in Florida.
And what it is, it’s a product that you put on and I bet in your application – Tom, it’d probably – best for her to roll it on or can she spray it on?
TOM: Well, she’d probably spray it on with a garden sprayer.
But you apply it and basically, that’s it. Mother Nature, wind and rain do the rest.
LESLIE: And it’s not going to make it go away that moment you put it on but give it a week’s time and that mold and mildew is gone.
BARBARA: OK. And you think with spraying it on the screen it would still – the screen would catch some of the product?
TOM: Yes, absolutely. It’s designed for any exterior surface so, certainly, screening is fine.
LESLIE: And it won’t damage the pool or any surrounding plants.
TOM: Or the plants.
BARBARA: OK. Well, that sounds like a perfect solution then.
TOM: Take a look at their website. It’s WetAndForget.com.
LESLIE: And the results will last for a long time.
BARBARA: Well, that’s great to know. Yeah, it’s something I don’t want to have to do. Well, I don’t mind doing it once a year but that would be the max on it.
TOM: Right. Alright. Good luck with that project. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
