Moss Removal From Roof Seattle

Let's Refresh Seattle

Seattle’s metropolitan area is dynamic and diverse, providing many housing and business options. 

With its rainy climate and lush greenery, however, it also presents unique challenges for property maintenance, particularly when it comes to roof moss. 

Moss can quickly grow on roofs in the area, lifting shingles and tiles and allowing water to penetrate the roof’s structure, causing damage and decay over time.

Regular roof moss removal is crucial for ensuring the longevity, safety, and aesthetic appeal of properties in Seattle. Neglecting this maintenance task can result in costly repairs and decreased property value. 

Regularly removing moss and other debris from your roofs protects the structural integrity of your homes and buildings, maintaining their appearance and value over time.

How We Help

Homeowners often seek effective, safe, and natural methods for treating moss from exterior surfaces.

While removing moss with baking soda is commonly used for controlling growth, it is only a short-term solution and may not address other factors.

Alternatively, bleach for removing moss is a method many use as it is a disinfectant that kills many organisms. But, unfortunately, it is also damaging to surfaces and plants.

Lime is another substance that alters the soil’s pH level, making it difficult for moss to grow.

However, using lime to kill moss is challenging as it requires repeated applications and can harm the plants if applied excessively. 

Although rumored to be effective, roundup for moss removal is another method that is not as good as others say. 

According to research, the active ingredient found in the herbicide only targets weeds but is damaging to the surrounding plants.

Finally, it is no secret why everyone asks if you can kill moss with vinegar. After all, it is a versatile kitchen and cleaning product that you can use on almost anything. 

Mixing equal parts of white vinegar and water or pouring it directly if the moss is heavy can often do the trick.

DIY Resources

Rainy and moist climates create favorable conditions that lead to moss growth on roofs and impact gutters.

Accumulated moss and debris cause blockages that prevent water from flowing freely, which is why it’s important also to get services for regular gutter cleaning, aside from roof moss removal.

If you want to do it yourself, we have informative articles on general and outside gutter cleaning that you can read.

Leaf-guard gutters are another popular gutter system that prevents leaves, sticks, and other debris from accumulating. 

While they already provide effective protection, you will still need to clean out leaf guard gutters occasionally so they can serve your gutters for a long time.

In addition to leaves and sticks, mildew can also form on the exterior and interior of the gutters, leading to an unsightly appearance and potential hazards.

Therefore, cleaning mildew off gutters is crucial to maintain your gutter’s functionality and longevity.
