HOW TO CLEAN A ROOF OF MOSS
The issue of moss growing on the roof has become more of a concern because of the green color and disfiguring it gives the home. Many homeowners have tried to do it themselves but many do not know how to clean the moss without ruining their paint. Cleaning a roof of moss requires professional expertise which truthfully most owners cannot afford. Over the years, we have done a great job in keeping the roof clean of moss without being too expensive. Nevertheless, let’s discuss how to clean moss off your roof.
WHAT IS A MOSS?
Moss is a flowerless spore-producing plant from the spores that grow in small capsules. After it germinates, it develops into protonema, looking like an algal colony due to its filamentous and sheet-like growth.
WHY DOES MOSS GROW ON ROOF?
Many homeowners have asked why moss grows on their beautiful and expensive roof despite plants not being anywhere close to it. However, moss is a plant that thrives in cool and damp habitats. So, if there is an in-flow of moss on your roof, it is likely that the roof is in the shade of trees or other things that allow moisture.
DAMAGE CAUSED BY MOSS ON A ROOF
- When it is little on the roof, it does not cause any danger. However, if it is not treated for a long time, it will cause significant harm and degrade the structural quality of the roof. It will begin to lose credibility.
- Their ability to grow in between every shingle cracks also destroys the shingle’s durability. As soon as they become thicker, the shingles become weakened and begin to allow leakages of water.
- Moss can absorb lots of rain and keep hold of it for a longer period. In due time, it becomes mold, transform into bacteria, and your roof frame begins to decay drastically.
HOW TO REMOVE MOSS
Step 1: Get rid of all big pieces of moss
The first thing to do is to get rid of all big pieces of moss, this can be done using various tools and equipment depending on the access to the property and type of roof. If you do not do this and try to apply a chemical solution this will not have the desired effect if the moss is too big.
Step 2: Clean all the gutters and make sure downpipes are clear
In the process of clearing the roof of any big pieces of moss, some of them will definitely end up in the guttering and even find their way in the downpipes if you are not careful, eventually blocking the downpipes before. And the main reason that this step is necessary is because if the gutters are blocked and you start the application of a anti-moss solution the excess instead of finding its way to the drain it will overflow being dangerous to the surroundings.
Step 3: Apply an anti-moss solution
Removing the big pieces of moss will not solve the problem completely as the roots of the moss will still be left especially between the tiles. That is why you should spray the roof with a anti-moss solution to kill all those small pieces left over. Choosing the wright anti-moss solution for your roof can be challenging and they don’t come cheap. If you choose the wrong one you will lose time and money.
Step 4: Let the Solution settle
Allow the solution to settle in. This can take between 2-24 hours, again depending on the roof and the environment around the house as well as the amount and type of moss you had on the roof.
Step 5: Wash of the Chemical
After the settling time is over some of the anti-moss solutions need to be rinsed down, but some of them don’t, this has to do with the mix of chemicals that the solution is made of. Make sure to read the manufacturers advice carefully, as it can be harmful to surrounding if not handled properly.
