Have you ever wanted to softwash a driveway or patio or even a tarmac drive that has too much moss on the surface and just soft washing with chemicals alone would leave all the dead moss and weeds on the drive?.
Well don't worry anymore because the mossmatic has it covered.
Using the mossmatic you can remove the moss and weeds from the surface that you are trying to clean then softwash with your chemical of choice for a final completed job that looks amazing. Without the use of a pressure washer!.
Also the added benefits from using the Mossmatic are as follows.
- You don't have to re-sand or return on a separate day to finish the re sand.
- You use a lot less water as soft washing doesn't require the same amount of water as pressure washing.
This method of cleaning exterior flat surfaces is desired by many customers and stands out as an alternative to pressure washing alone.
To operate you would oscillate left and right with the Mossmatic as you push it forward. It is advisable to have a leaf blower to hand to clean up the loose moss once you have finished.
SoftWash UK would recommend applying a soft wash recipe made up of sodium hypochlorite and clever wash at around 4% to the block paving after the moss has been removed. Dwelltime of 15 to 20 minutes would be required and you may have to to apply a second coat of recipe with the same dwelltime.
On completion of the soft wash to improve the overall all finish it would be advisable to rinse off with a hosepipe or bulk rinse with a low pressure washer.
As an alternative you could use Soft Wash Pro 50 and spray it to the surface and leave to allow to self clean over a period of months.
The Mossmatic Brush is a compact walk behind, fully hydraulic, hard surface cleaner to save you time, energy and money.
Perfect for clearing moss, weeds & debris from any hard surface; block paving, concrete, tarmac, asphalt or bricks. Simply start the engine & direct where you want to clean. The rounded brush with angled bristles allows you to get up close to kerb edges, corners & hard to reach areas.
A dedicated machine for moss and weed removal. Ideal for block paving and path edges. The hydraulic drive attachment efficiently removes the weeds, moss and the dirt from the surface. It can be adjusted in any direction allowing easy cleaning of block paving and undulating surfaces. The head allows easy removal of weeds around buildings and along kerb edges.
- The above machine will remove moss and weeds?
Yes, it removes the moss, weeds and the growing medium from the hard surface; preventing regrowth until new detritus gives a growing platform again.
How successful this is will depend on how the brush is set up and whether the material is completely removed or simply unstuck and left there.
- Does the head pivot to left and right and also pitch in up and down?.
Yes, the head can be adjusted forwards, backwards, left and right, allowing the correct angle to be achieved no matter what the type or angle of the surface (within the limits of the machine)
- Can you also add a weight to the front?
No, unless you make one yourself – we have found that on this lighter machine a weight is not necessary.
- Replacement heads brushes how much are they and how long typically they last ?
Brushes last between 40-60 hours of use, they come in easy to change sections, each costing £9.50 + VAT each. We typically use the Weedo with 4 of these sections, but it is also possible to use 8. This brush life is fairly typical with this type of machine, but I have found our replacement brushes much cheaper than alternatives.
