Whether you have brick pavers leading up to your doorstep or concrete pavers on your patio, moss may begin to grow on the surface, forming in spots that don’t get a lot of sunlight. Although some homeowners try to grow moss on their pavers because they like the way it looks, others would prefer the pavers to be moss-free. Remove moss from your brick or concrete pavers quickly, using the right products and methods.
Things You'll Need
- Wire brush
- Empty garden sprayer
- Chlorine bleach
Sweep the pavers with the broom to remove loose debris. Scrub as much moss off the pavers as possible, using the wire brush. Sweep away the loosened moss with the broom.
Fill an empty garden sprayer with equal parts of white vinegar and warm water. Soak the moss spots with the vinegar mixture.
Let the vinegar soak onto the moss spots for 30 minutes. Scrub again with the wire brush until the moss is gone.
Rinse the pavers thoroughly with water from the garden hose.
Mix 1 part chlorine bleach and 10 parts water into a clean garden sprayer, if any moss remains. Spray the bleach mixture onto the moss, then scrub briskly with the wire brush to remove it. Rinse the pavers well with the garden hose.
