Foamstream effectively controls unwanted vegetation by using the heat in hot water, insulated by a biodegradable foam blanket. The foam stops the heat escaping to the atmosphere, keeping the heat on the plant for longer, ensuring a more effective kill. Sterilisation of surrounding seeds and spores also helps to reduce regrowth. Read more about this here.

We’re excited about Foamstream’s possibilities as a public engagement tool, as well as the positive feedback from potential clients and increased chances of getting onto new approved supplier lists.

NYC & NYS are extremely environmentally conscious and take great precautions towards protecting the parks, private & public schools, municipal areas and universities. Since representing Weedingtech here in NY, the reception has been enormous, and the potential endless. Foamstream is rapidly gaining popularity because of its herbicide-free approach to eliminating weeds, along with its additional functionality for sanitisation tasks such as street cleaning and gum removal. Being people and pet friendly as well as reducing costs, it’s a true win-win year-round solution.
