Why is Roof Cleaning Important?
Your roof is one of the biggest investments you can make on your home so you’ll want to see to it that you are taking great care of it to avoid having to replace it sooner than necessary. General cleaning of your roof can help ensure your warranty on the roof is valid and keep your home looking beautiful.
Removing Debris From Your Roof
Removing debris from your roof is a very important step to keep moss, algae, or lichen from forming on your roof and possibly staining it. Debris can hold in moisture which creates a breeding ground for these organisms to grow and thrive. Moisture on the roof can also soften shingles and lead to a roof leak, or cause them to become brittle and break off over time.
Cleaning Moss From Your Roof
In addition to debris removal, it is of the utmost importance to remove and treat moss on your roof regularly. Being in the Pacific Northwest we live in an environment that moss thrives in. Not only can moss be unsightly, but if enough accumulates, it can actually redirect water flow from its intended target into the gutters and cause water damage to decks or landscaping.
How Often Should You Clean Your Roof?
Depending on the environment around your home we’d expect most homeowners to have the roof cleared of debris at a minimum of once, if not twice a year. Common times for roof cleaning are early in the Spring before the rainy season hits and late Fall once the debris has mostly fallen for the season.
Ladder Heroes recommends having your roof inspected and treated for moss once a year. The moss treatment we apply will kill moss but it also has a residual effect that will change the pH level on the roof which helps prevent moss for months following the application. This can be done any time of the year as the treatment we use can be used in wet or dry conditions.
What Does Roof Cleaning & Moss Treatment Involve?
Our complete roof cleaning process begins by having a technician use a stiff brush to gently remove any larger clumps of moss from the roof. Next, the technician will use an industrial grade backpack blower to clear the roof of the moss and any tree debris sitting on the roof. Lastly, we apply a moss treatment to the roof. If any moss remains on the roof we’d expect that moss to change color from green to yellow, brown, or black in the following month. Over time, the moss with wither away and slough off of the roof in the elements. We clean up your property at the end and your home should look better than before we arrived!
