It seems as if everyone these days wants to clean their roof and give it a gleaming new appearance. The trend had never been popular until a few years ago. Thought the job is not that difficult but it is best left to professional hands due to the dangers involved in it. Unless you have a shallow roof or enough experience just shrug the thought of getting on top of your roof to get the job done.
There are several roof cleaning options at your disposal to choose from such as:
- First is to use a scraper to gently remove the moss from the roof surface and then apply the cleaning chemical using a sprayer with the help of professional pressure washer. This will help the chemical to work better and faster.
- Second option is to use a pressure washer to blast away any dirt or moss residing on the surface of the roof. However, this method is not recommended as it can damage the shingles or tiles and wash away the protective granules covering the surface.
- The third option is to manually remove the excess moss with a scraper and then apply a copper roof strip along the ridge line and another about half way down the roof. When it rains the water comes in contact with the metal and a residue is released that prevents new growth. The method is not suitable for areas that already are infested with mold. However, it is good for the surfaces that have already been cleaned.
