Roof Cleaning and Moss Removal - How Important Is It Really?
Moss has a way at times of rapidly taking over a surface and if left untreated it can lead to some unwanted complications and consequences. When it comes to roof cleaning, moss is often the number on culprit we encounter. Here on this page, we will cover a bit about moss and the damage it can do and a few solutions for you as a homeowner.
At Issaquah Window and Gutter Cleaning Service you will find that our roof cleaning approach works. Our number one goal is to help remove moss and slow down future growth as best possible.
Often the environment for mold and moss to grow is something you can prevent with a little bit of maintenance and awareness. If you are not used to doing this sort of intensive work it can quickly feel like a big project. We are more than happy to lend some expertise on the matter and assist you with some regular roof cleaning maintenance. Having a proper maintenance schedule set up for your roof and your unique home and environment is important.
We want to help you protect such a large investment. And we are not just referring to the roof itself, but the entire home! Roof damage from mold, moss, and bacteria can often be a gateway to additional problems that effect more than just the lid of the home.
Often when it comes to mold and mildew growth and preventing it from happening the solution is as straightforward as putting a maintenance plan in place. As we all know, having a plan is one thing but making it happen is another story entirely.
Moss is very resilient and it will continue to come back time and time again. We typically see patches of green on some of the roofs we service in Bothell. Mold and moss thrive in darker and wetter environments and they have an abundance of that here. We often see a tree covering a portion of a roof or perhaps a house tucked up against a hill even. And more often than not the area that receives the least amount of sun is the one with the majority of the moss growth. Additionally on top of that we often find that the condition of the roof is the worst in these areas as well.
Moss is often seen on the roof and usually located, with all other factors being the same, somewhere on the north side. The north side of the roof typically gets the least amount of sun due to our geographic location and the suns position in the sky.
Moss has been shown to drastically cut the life of a shingle roof if let untreated. Spores can wedge themselves between the shingles and can lead to some serious unwanted growth and bacterial issues. We would love the opportunity to provide you with a free consultation and we are happy to get up on your roof to see what work needs to be done.
Our staff will remove the moss that has accumulated but doing so is a bit of a particular art at times. The trick is that you want to remove the mold and moss without damaging the roof tiles. In certain situations we might recommend pressure washing the surface to remove the build up but that is not always the case. We have seen too many instances where a company has taken a layer of the roof off along with the moss from carelessly spraying away and having the nozzle angle or pressure dialed incorrectly.
When you speak with us we will want to know about the surface of your roof and when the last time you had it cleaned. Knowing the details upfront can often help us understand how aggressive the growth is and if perhaps there might be additional factors playing into why the growth was so rapid if the roof was recently cleaned.
Our estimates are always free and low-hassle. We ultimately just want you to feel good about the way your roof looks throughout the year and we understand how challenging that can be living up here in the Northwest. We have no science or facts to back this theory up but over the years it really seems as though Bothell is always out in front leading the way when it comes to tree coverage over roofs and aggressive moss growth.
We look forward to working with you and hope you have time to check out our other services that might come in handy for your home.
