Moss Treatment

Roof spray treatment offers a gentle and effective solution for cleaning your roof without the need for waterblasting or pressure cleaning. This method involves applying a specialized roof biocide treatment that gradually eliminates moss, mold, and lichen. Over time, natural rainfall washes away the treated debris, leaving your roof clean within approximately 6 months.

In many cases, our technicians can administer this treatment from the side of the roof using ladders or from the ground, minimizing the need to walk on your roof. Our roof moss treatment is capable of targeting various types of moss, mold, lichen, and algae, boasting a proven track record with a 100% success rate.

Roof treatment cleaning involves spraying your roof to remove organic materials like algae, mold, mildew, lichen, and moss gradually. If neglected, these elements can damage roofing materials, resulting in leaks and expensive repairs. Regular cleaning not only prolongs the life of your roof but also preserves your home’s aesthetic appeal.

The frequency of roof cleaning depends on various environmental and structural factors. Here are some key considerations:

  1. Local Climate: Areas with high humidity, frequent rain, or proximity to the ocean may experience more algae, mold, and moss growth, requiring cleaning every 1 to 2 years.

  2. Vegetation: Roofs near trees that shed leaves or pine needles may need more frequent cleaning to prevent organic debris buildup and moisture retention.

  3. Existing Growth: If moss, lichen, or algae are present on your roof, regular cleaning is essential to prevent damage.

  4. Manufacturer’s Recommendations: Always follow the roofing material manufacturer’s maintenance guidelines to comply with warranty conditions.

As a general rule, cleaning every 2 to 3 years is recommended. However, at Tidy Roof, we assess your specific situation, considering these factors, to provide a tailored recommendation. This ensures your roof receives the appropriate cleaning frequency without over or under-servicing.

A correctly executed roof cleaning procedure will not void the manufacturer’s warranty. Our technicians undergo training to adhere to industry standards and the guidelines set by roofing material manufacturers, ensuring the preservation of your warranty.

Moss and lichen pose several risks to roofing materials and can cause long-term damage if not properly managed:

  1. Moisture Damage: Moss absorbs and retains moisture, leading to the degradation of roofing materials. In regions with freeze-thaw cycles, this moisture can freeze and expand, resulting in cracked or broken shingles or tiles.

  2. Root Systems: Both moss and lichen can develop root-like structures that firmly attach to shingles and other roofing materials. Over time, these structures can lift the edges of shingles, compromising the roof’s ability to shed water and causing potential leaks.

  3. Decay and Corrosion: The constant moisture from moss and lichen can accelerate wood rot on wooden roofing components and cause rust on metal fixtures such as nails and flashing.

  4. Blocked Gutters and Downpipes: Pieces of moss and lichen can break off and accumulate in gutters, leading to blockages and water overflow. This overflow can result in additional damage to the roof and the structure’s foundations.

  5. Aesthetic Damage: In addition to structural concerns, moss and lichen can create unsightly green, black, or white patches on the roof’s surface, diminishing its appearance and potentially impacting property value.
