Mobile Roofing Tip of the Month: The Benefits of Removing Moss on Your Roof

The moss will be growing in areas that are consistently damp. If your roof remains wet for a longer period, it will not take too long before the moss will cover your roof. This can degrade the quality of your roof. The plants can easily penetrate your roof surface that can contract during the cold season. This can dislodge the shingles and tiles and speed up the destruction of your roof.

Why You Should Remove the Moss on Roof

Most of our roof will have lichens or moss growth. These patches will eventually cause problem to our roofing structure. In case you ignore this problem, the moss will further grow that will lead to a more serious and expensive issue.

- Think of moss like a sponge. It has the capacity to absorb a considerable amount of moisture. This means that the surface of your roof will remain wet and heavy. Once the moisture penetrated the tiles, it can lead to the rotting of the roof. This can greatly threaten the roof's integrity that will cause expensive repairs.

- To those who have a pitched roof, they can expect that they will have an easy drainage system due to the angle of the roof. However, if they have moss, it can obstruct the flow of the water and absorb the moisture. This will prevent the water from being drained.

- Additionally, the moss will break off and disintegrate into the downspout and gutter. This will then block your drainage system. In case you fail to address the problem, this can lead to the complete replacement of your drainage system.

- The roof moss will attract wildlife creatures and insects. This will not only affect the aesthetic appeal of your house. It can also be unsanitary due to the defecation of the nuisance animals.

Treating Your Moss Problem

You can start by hand scraping the moss that will make it easier for you to remove them. Some people use a pressure washer to dislodge the moss; however, if you do not know how to use it properly, you can end up damaging your roof. Using bleach may be a more desirable solution for those who lack the experience. Bleach has a corrosive property that can kill the moss. However, this may cause discoloration to your roof. You should be wearing protective gears before you implement this solution.

There are moss-control solutions sold in the market. This is the most appropriate solution to remove the moss on the roof. This is made from the zinc sulfate that will not cause damage to your property. However, it may also damage the vegetation and may have detrimental effect to the wildlife animals.

After clearing the moss, you will need a preventative measures in place to prevent the growth of the moss. You should also regularly clean your roof and make sure that it is free from debris. Adding zinc strips can also keep the moss off your roof. This material will be able to protect your roof for a year or more.
