Roof Cleaning Company Richmond
Regular cleaning and maintenance are critical when addressing the moss and algae on your roof in Richmond. Without regular care and treatment, your roof could lose as much as 40% of its life. Our cleaning solution at West Coast Moss Removal keeps your roof cleaner longer and is also completely safe for your family, your pets, and your plants.
Richmond is no stranger to weather conditions that can have a negative effect on your asphalt roof. Because of its closeness to the coast and low elevation, it sees a lot of algae and moss growth. Asphalt roofs are common, and these roofs are under constant assault from the elements. The conditions are ideal for the rapid growth of moss and algae, so it is essential to deal with it quickly.
There are some industry organizations that provide the foundation for the process we use. We follow the guidance of the ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association), the NRCA (National Roof Contractors Association), the RCIA (Roof Cleaning Institute of America), and the PRCA (Professional Roof Cleaning Association), making our methods manufacturer approved.
Organic buildup can form and take hold quickly on your asphalt roof in Richmond. Once it takes hold, it is tough to get rid of. The trouble for many that are not familiar with how to address it, is just how delicate the process is. They end up doing more damage to the roof than does the algae and moss buildup.
Once the damage is done by too much and incorrect cleaning, your asphalt shingles are less able to protect your roof and home. The lifespan of your roof is significantly shortened, and you face a pricy replacement.
But the job still needs to be done. Ultimately moss grows underneath your shingles, lifting them out of place and preventing them from drying. Moss also consumes the tar that holds asphalt shingles in place.
Our experience has taught us that blasting off roof moss with high pressure shortens the life of the roof. These surfaces require a gentle sterilization treatment that kills the moss and its spores.
We start with the manual removal of moss, blowing away loose moss and other debris on the roof and in the gutters. We then clear excess debris from around your house and soak your surrounding beds with clean water. We finish your roof with a sterilization treatment that kills any remaining moss, roots, or spores.
This is better for maintaining the life of your roof because the sterilization treatment keeps growth from returning as often. The secret to a roof lasting longer is to clean it less.
Your garden and the entire area will be protected from harm. Our solution is formulated to break down safely in the ecosystem, whether into the air or into the ground. There are no hazardous materials, just effective moss and algae removal. Getting your roof coated with our sterilization solution will retard this growth and keep your roof cleaner for longer.
