Removing roots from the wall
I have a problem - years ago I was stupid enough to plant nephthytis and other climber (don't know the name - very common) near the house wall and let them climb up. They grew to become a monsters and I thought it looks cool. Ha! Now I am trying to remove this jungle to paint the house. I thought it wouldnÃ¯Â¿Â½t be a problem. The green stuff I removed easily but the roots... They are not green , they are kind of wooden and grew into the stucco, they donÃ¯Â¿Â½t rotÃ¯Â¿Â½ Well, maybe they will in a few years. I scrubbed with knife, metal brush , I scrubbed the paint off the wall Ã¯Â¿Â½ the roots are still there in crevices. Is there some chemical I can use to dissolve organic matter without damaging stucco? Please help me if you have any ideas. And donÃ¯Â¿Â½t make this mistake!
