Algae Assassin: The key to removing algae without harmful chemicals

Are you combating algae or moss growth around your home but concerned about using products filled with toxic chemicals? We are too! Here at Green Water Labs, our mission is to eliminate the need for cleaning products that use toxic chemicals and replace them with effective, safe and earth friendly alternatives. Algae Assassin is one of our first products, made with the safety of our earth and community in mind. It is a safe and effective alternative to the toxic products commonly used to clear algae and moss growth from outside your home and we are so excited to share it with you!

The Problem with Toxic Products If you live in an environment with frequent rain, and moisture like we do in Seattle, we know you are familiar with the overgrowth of moss and algae on your home surfaces. Algae and moss on decks, patios, stairs, and walkways can be slippery. Moss overgrowth on our pots, garden beds and gutters can be troublesome to keep up with and power washing erodes surfaces. The problem is, the products often sold to remove algae and moss are often filled with toxins such as bleach, ammonia, and formaldehyde. These toxins can leach into the soil and eventually make their way into our water sources contaminating rivers, lakes, groundwater, wildlife and compromising our water quality. 

Exposure to toxic chemicals in cleaning products can also pose serious health risks to humans, including respiratory problems, reproductive complications, skin irritation, and allergic reactions. Children and pets in particular are vulnerable to the harmful effects of chemical exposure. A study in 2023 found that many everyday cleaning products also may release hundreds of hazardous, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Some products emit VOCs into the air that can last between a few days up to several months. Our communities and planet as a whole desperately need alternatives that we can use proudly, knowing that the ingredients are not only effective but will be contributing to a cleaner future.

The Natural and Safe Solution We are so proud to offer our newest product, Algae Assassin! Made from recycled plant waste, this revolutionary product is effective at controlling algae and moss growth and is safe for all surfaces including house siding, gutters, decks, fences, cars and more. 

Benefits of Algae Assassin for Homeowners Algae assassin is a non-toxic and biodegradable formula meant to not only get rid of algae, but also provides lasting results without need for frequent reapplication. Algae Assassin effectively eliminates algae without harming surrounding plants or surfaces, in turn, protecting our families, communities, waterways and wildlife. Unlike products containing the toxic ingredients mentioned above, using Algae Assassin around the house will not emit toxins into the air or onto your skin. You can feel comfortable and safe using other non-toxic products alongside Algae Assassin because non-toxic products will not mix together and produce dangerous fumes. Using non-toxic products may also reduce the incidence of asthma attacks caused by chemical allergens and improve the air quality inside of your home. 

Protecting the health of our community and customers is always on our minds. Additionally, our earth and the preservation of our earth is of paramount importance to us. One of the most exciting benefits of using Algae Assassin is that users of this product and other products like it are making a difference toward a cleaner earth and a brighter future for themselves and their families and the life around them. We cannot express enough gratitude for all who have decided to invest in themselves and our planet by switching to eco-friendly products.

Applications Around the Home Simply spray Algae Assassin onto the surface you wish to clean and wait for three to five days. Then, go ahead and rinse the area with water. Our proprietary blend binds with the surface and protects it from further algae and moss growth. Sometimes really thick algae or moss necessitates another treatment. But it’s really that easy.
