Why is MossOff safer to use than other chemical moss control products?
Other moss/algae products on the market work by chemically attacking the cell structure in order to kill the moss/algae. These products can be used on hard surfaces but must be away from plants and grass as they can cause scorching. They also pose a safety risk to people and animals and are very toxic to aquatic life. They require the use of protective clothing during application and it is necessary to keep people and pets away from the treated area for a while.
