While moss can take months or years to grow on your rooftop, removing it doesn’t have to take as long. Quickly clean moss of your roof shingles by hiring a professional, or do it yourself by stocking up on some heavy-duty tools and products.
Asphalt or fiberglass shingles are the most popular rooftop types on houses, and it’s possibly atop your home. These are some of the most durable shingle materials and can withstand water blasts from pressure and power washers. Achieving the cleanest exterior with the use of one of these machines is much more attainable than using only a hose or a scrub brush. However, selecting an industrial-grade solution will help speed up the process by lifting up the stubborn debris and stains, and will result in a sparkling clean rooftop.
Importance of Cleaning Your Roof
While moss may seem more of an eyesore than anything, it actually can do serious damage to your home. This organism requires moisture to live and traps water inside of its spores in order to do so. This extra water sitting atop your roof in the moss can cause water damage to your shingles. What’s more, the water can then seep into the interior of your home, ruining your ceiling and creating other structural damage.
How to Clean Moss Off Quick
In order to clean moss in the most efficient manner, you will need the following supplies:
- Power or pressure washer (turned to a low-pressure setting)
- TidalWashers’s TIDAL ROOF FOAM
- Ladder (for rooftop access)
- Spray bottle
- Water (to dilute the solution)
- Safety gear (i.e., gloves, goggles)
STEP 1: Safety & Prep – Ensure all safety gear is worn, and take any necessary precautions before handling the chemicals. After, follow TIDAL ROOF FOAM directions, diluting the mixture with 10 parts water and 1 part chemical. Place the diluted solution into the spray bottle.
STEP 2: Apply the Solution – Obtain rooftop access with the help of your ladder. Once atop, thoroughly administer the solution to the asphalt or fiberglass shingles.
STEP 3: Wash – Use a power washer set to warm or cold water and blast away the moss and any other stains. Practice care at all times, setting the pressure to 500-1000 PSI in order to protect the shingles. Once all of the grime has disappeared, wash away the rest of the solution from the roof.
That’s it! These three quick and easy steps should help your roof achieve a moss-free complexion and look cleaner than it has in years.
