Why should you clean your roof?
- To prolong the life span
Cleaning helps minimize and eliminate damages and also prevents it from leaking. This, in turn, prolongs the life span.
- To avoid frequent repairs
Leaving fungus and moss to grow on rooftops can shorten the roof’s life, causing damages that need repairs that can be avoided by cleaning.
- To keep pest and insect away
Keeping a dirty roof can attract the attention of pests and insects. This can be avoided by getting a professional cleaner to ease up the stress.
- Saves you money on utility bills
Having your roof clean saves you more money spent on energy bills because too much dirt and moss on the roof makes the home absorb more heat, costing you more on getting the temperature cool.
- Improves your home look
Either you are planning to sell your house, or not a clean roof is always an addition to the way your home looks. However, having a properly maintained roof is a plus to the beauty of the home.
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 will happen naturally, and with the Biocide solution that we use, no rinsing is necessary as per manufacturer instructions.
