Algae RemovalWe use the environmentally friendly DOFF and TORC systems

Algae is unsightly and dangerous, professional removal is a fast and effective solution

Algae removal improves both the hygiene and health safety of your environment, while also improving its aesthetic appeal. Algae looks unsightly and if allowed to build up, it can damage the underlying surfaces and present a dangerous slip hazard. Commercially available products can be ineffective, harmful to the environment and costly in terms of time, effort, and expense. Ideal Cleaning’s professional algae removal service restores any surface, providing ‘like new’ results. Our TORC Vortex and DOFF cleaning systems rapidly and completely removes algae, leaving your environment clean and safe.

Algae is a plant-like, photosynthetic organism that flourishes in any environment with moisture, carbon dioxide, minerals and sunlight. The density of algae can suddenly increase with changes to the levels of sunlight or mineral availability. If algae occurs in areas with footfall, this damp, slimy surface can present a dangerous slip hazard. When algae is left untreated, it damages the underlying surface; incomplete treatment leaves residual algae which will quickly flourish.
