Some problem that are caused by lichen and moss growths include:
– Moss absorbs and holds water forcing water under the shingles, causing water damage.
– Granule damage on the shingles, which cause a pre-mature, costly roof replacement.
– Bad curb appeal of the house and roof.
– Green and black mold gets into the ceiling, causing health problems.
– As moss absorbs water and gets heavy, the roof can cave in.
– We use a system called SoftWash, which is a liquid solution-treatment that kills all growth on the roof and gives it 2-3 years of moss protection.
– All the growth dies within 30 minutes. We then use low pressure water to remove the moss shingle by shingle.
– No coarse brushes or high pressure that damage shingles will be used. We also don’t use moss out powder treatment, which only gives the roof 6-8 months of moss protection.
– Its one of the most safe, effective, and most beneficial ways to clean your roof.
