Protect Your Home: Say Goodbye to Unsightly Lichen with Red Gable Cleaning

Why Lichen Removal is Crucial for Your Home's Longevity

Moss 1

Lichens are a unique combination of a fungus and an algae living in a mutually beneficial relationship. They typically appear as yellow or white growths and can be found on any surface, including roofs, walls, and trees. Although they may look harmless, lichens can cause damage to the surface they are growing on by producing an acid that dissolves it and helps them attach firmly. Some lichens can even survive for decades or even hundreds of years, braving the extreme weather conditions of Ireland.

The team at Red Gable Cleaning understands the potential harm that lichens can cause to your property. When lichens are treated by our expert technicians, the algae component of the lichen is killed, and the lichen dies. Although lichens are well-attached to the surface and may take a few weather cycles to dry up and flake off. They have taken years to grow and it will take several seasons before they fully disappear.

Not only can lichens be harmful to your property, but they can also be unsightly and impact your property’s overall appearance.
