Algae are simple plants that can range from the microscopic (microalgae), to large seaweeds (macroalgae), such as giant kelp more than one hundred feet in length. Microalgae include both cyanobacteria, (similar to bacteria, and formerly called “blue-green algae”) as well as green, brown and red algae. (There are more varieties of microalgae, but these are the main ones.)
Most microalgae grow through photosynthesis – by converting sunlight, CO2 and a few nutrients, including nitrogen and phosphorous, into material known as biomass This is called “autotrophic” growth. Other algae can grow in the dark using sugar or starch (called “heterotrophic” growth), or even combine both growth modes (called “mixotrophic” growth).
Algae are very diverse and found almost everywhere on the planet.
No, not at all! The Algae Removal Treatment only targets very small living organisms. This means that it will not discolour or erode any stone work, or cause harm to you, your family, pets and plants. Our treatment targets small organisms like bacteria and algae. Plant life are multicellular organisms, therefore too big to be harmed by our treatment.
We would expect the Algae Removal Treatment to last for one year. However, some areas are so badly affected by algae that a further treatment might be needed.
