ENVIRO-WORKS PATH AND PATIO CLEANER – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How does Enviro-Works Path & Patio Cleaner work?

Enviro-Works Path & Patio Cleaner is a unique biological formulation using carefully selected micro-organisms derived from naturally sustainable sources. It uses these micro-organisms…or ‘friendly pro-biotic bacteria’ to clean rather than using hazardous chemicals like many competitor products to do the job. The ‘pro-biotic bacteria’ in Enviro-Works Path & Patio Cleaner also create a new bio mass on the clean surface to prevent algae and slime regeneration therefore not only keeping the surface looking clean but also reducing the risk of slipping.

How should I apply Enviro-Works Path & Patio Cleaner?

The label on the bottle gives clear instructions on how to use the product however it is essentially applied by diluting 25ml of product to every litre of water.

Repeat on particularly dirty or green surfaces.
