Powered moss removalRemoving moss from pavements, yards and walkways can be a troublesome task, but removing moss can be made simple with a Kersten powered sweeper or WeedBrush.
Chemical use is highly controversial and topical and any way of reducing it is welcome.
The hydraulic powered sweeper can be set to scrub the outdoor hard surface clean whilst maintaining a steady forward speed removing moss and the debris that the moss is growing in. Moss and debris is collected in the collector box on the sweeping machine ensuring the surface is left clean and free from moss.

Moss and debris can freezeWinter conditions can make the moss covered surface even more dangerous as the moisture contained in the moss and debris can freeze. Due to the shade these areas do not thaw easily. Continued frost in the pavement surface can cause the small stones in the tarmac to become pushed out due to the expansion of the moisture contained in the debris that has been left. Of course this damage is only realised when the debris is removed from the hard surface pavement. This type of damage to the pavement is very expensive to remedy. In the past pavements used to be swept regularly by council work men with brooms. Using brushes and brooms kept the surface free from debris and the moss did not grow. Today most pavements are not swept with a broom or sweeper. At best they may be cleared with a back pack or hand held powered blower. Most blowers are not powerful enough to move the debris that is stuck to the surface.

The only sure way of removing moss is by physically removing it and its growing medium or food sources.
