The major risk associated with moss is its ability to make surfaces very slippery. Paths, car parks, decking, patios, walkways, pavements and outdoor communal areas can become hazardous when infected by moss. When left unchecked, moss growth is capable of negatively affecting a business’s operations. The presence of moss in dynamic areas can cause difficulties with manoeuvring across premises, and increases the likelihood of slips and trips, putting the well-being of personnel at risk.
In addition to causing a slip hazard, moss can hamper water flow and prevent water from draining away quickly, especially during flooding. This is due to its ability to absorb liquid. Although flooding does happen in urban areas, moss that is located in wooded areas, fields and bogs is often a cause of preventing flood water from receding. This in turn can impact upon developed areas such as roads, pathways and other structures.
Moss growth on signage can also prove a significant risk. If motorists are unable to clearly read signage, vehicles can create avoidable hazards when entering or exiting your property. These are just some of the reasons why the owners of commercial premises should consider moss removal.
