Process Similar To Removing Old Shingles
We always like to help however we can, so we’ll give you a basic idea of how to remove moss from your rood. That way, even when you hire a professional, you’ll understand the process and feel more at home. The same goes for when you might have to remove old shingles from your roof.
The first and easiest way to get to the moss is to have access to a heavy-duty sprayer that will reach the top of your home. This is important since we never recommend that you actually go on top or walk on your roof.
Next, you’ll need a cleaning solution. The easiest way to do this is to carefully mix chlorine bleach and water, paying attention to all the safety precautions of the chlorine bleach solution. Make sure to mix the ratio according to your bleach’s safety recommendations and that of your government safety agency’s recommendation.
You’ll want to spray your cleaning solution onto the moss. Let it sit for 20 minutes. After that, spray it off with water. Once again, make sure to wear protective eyewear and to keep the bleach cleaning solution and the water from getting on people, animals, plants, and other surfaces that could possibly be harmed. Using tarp and plastic to protect these areas and structures is highly recommended.
