How Algae Affects your Aluminum Pool Cage

Algae prospers in humid and warm climates, when algae are found on your aluminum framework, it is important to get the algae removed as soon as possible as it is working to compromise the aluminum as well as break down the crucial protective barriers of the metal and its coating. If the fungus is left on cage framework too long, it will deteriorate the paint or coatings on the metal.

How Algae Affects your Lanai Screens

For screens, it will speed up deterioration causing them to become brittle, reduce the life expectancy and make the enclosure very unattractive. The charcoal screen can become colored with fungus or show algae attached to it. The outside barrier or the screen will be weakened and “eaten” away. As this happens you will find the fiberglass yarn turning white or silver and it is coming off the metal that makes the screen.

Not only does this make the screen unsightly, but also mold will reduce the strength of the screen and eventually you will notice the discoloration. Various panels may even need to be replaced due to rips and tear- outs at the spine.

Therefore, proper pressure cleaning on a regular basis is imperative to extending the life of your screen enclosures and making them look beautiful and back to new!

What Fungus does to your Pool Cage

Fungus is serious and many people think it is a visual issue only. But fungus breaks down ALL protective surfaces and should be cleaned on a regular basis to prevent corrosion. Since algae spread very easily, you will notice it will be more prominently in areas where the humidity is increased, usually where there is prominent shade and where water collects. Algae will spread rapidly and since it is transmitted by wind and wildlife, you will find it will cover a wide range of buildings in the same area or neighborhood.
