Your Roof, Moss Free!
Everyone has heard the age old adage that moss grows on the northern side of trees. In an ideal world, that’s where the moss should stay. The proverb that doesn’t get passed around is that moss can take roots on your roof. The wetter climate of Washington gives moss the perfect breeding ground to sprout up. Though it may seem like a small issue, moss on roofs can cause large problems. On shingle roofs, moss can actually cause the shingles to rise up from each other. With these new gaps made, water is able to seep into the decking of the roof and cause leaks, which could potentially ruin your home. Furthermore, with moss raising the shingles, this can lead them to taking a sail like effect under heavy winds, ripping the shingles straight off.
Avoid this entire headache by hiring the services of a moss removal company and getting all the moss removed from your roof with our team of professionals. Also, if you bring us in, we won’t make rookie cleaning mistakes while we take up the task of moss removal. Many cleaning companies will remove moss by simply blasting it with a power washer. This is actually a huge detriment to your roof. By removing moss with a power washer, the lifespan of your roof is taking a beating. Power washing may seem to remove moss from your roof, but it will actually remove the asphalt granules from your shingles, which protect your shingles and give a longer lifespan. We’ll make sure to remove your moss the right way. When we take up algae removal, we start by cleaning and agitating the moss on your roof with a brush, and use backpack blowers to push away and clean the debris. After this, we make sure to clean out your gutters and downspouts, ensuring that the moss doesn’t re-grow in those wet spots or create clogs, which is the correct way to control it’s growth. As a final step of our moss control regime, we use a Zinc treatment on your roof to kill any remaining moss. Best of all, other that the fact that it would prevent moss from growing, zinc treatments are very safe, and would not cause you, your plants, or pets any harm.
