How Moss Develops
If your roof is situated in a shaded area and the weather in your area is cool and damp, then moss might start to grow. Moss grows in shaded areas and grows well where it is damp. Water sometimes sits on roofs if it is frequent enough, causing moss to grow in this area. This is why it is important to clean your roof before moss can grow there. If you have a roof that has moss growing on it then you will need to treat it for your gutters to work efficiently. Also, moss does not look good on your roof.
If you know that your house is in a shaded and frequently damp area and you are wanting to prevent the growth of moss, then we can help you. Our moss treatment service is there for people that have moss already growing on their roof, but we like to educate our clients on ways to prevent moss growth. If your house is situated near a lot of trees that prevent the sunlight from hitting your roof, then we suggest you trim the trees. By trimming the trees, you will allow the sunlight to hit your roof and dry up any moisture that is on it
When trying to clean moss off your roof, you can't just go straight in with the moss treatment product. We need to first scrub the roof to some of the moss off. After that, then we can go ahead with the moss treatment. There's a special technique when applying moss treatment which is why we always suggest that you let a professional do it. Our roof cleaning specialists have several years of experience treating moss and have always come out successful. We know that treating moss is not an easy task and that is why we want to help you.
The structure of moss is relatively simple, it is dependent on water being available. This is the reason why you will see moss growing in and on damp ground, or in this case on a damp roof. The roots of the moss are able to absorb water easily while the leaves and the stems of the moss lose water quite easily due to transpiration. Without moisture, moss cannot grow which is why you will find moss on a damp roof. Moss can be helpful as it can show you that you have damp spots on your roof that you did not know were there.
