ROOF CLEANING OPTIONS
Our staple method of roof cleaning in Bellingham, WA for moss and algae removal is referred to as "soft washing". This is the industry standard roof cleaning method which is recommended by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA). This is a no-pressure process in which we lightly broom off large clumps of moss before spraying a biodegradable solution onto the roof that instantly kills all organic growth. Remaining moss turns whitish-yellow and will disintegrate off of the roof within 2-5 months or sooner, leaving the roof looking like-new. Results are completely guaranteed.
Another option for roof cleaning in Bellingham, WA is a less costly roof blow-off. This is a good option if you are not in need of moss, algae, lichen, or slime removal. This method will remove 95% or more of loose debris from this roof, but will not remove moss. Please specify this method in your inquiry.
We offer moss preventative treatments as an inexpensive way to prevent moss from growing on your roof in the first place. This will not kill or remove existing moss and algae (a soft wash roof cleaning is necessary for that). Moss prevention typically cost $60-$140 to have this powder applied to the ridges of the roof. It will wash down the roof during the following rains and can be applied rain or shine. We recommend applying this once per year to kill micro-organisms before you start noticing any moss. This can help prevent you from needing roof cleaning in Bellingham, WA altogether, if applied annually. It is not really necessary to apply this after a soft wash roof cleaning, but we recommend to start applying it annually 1-2 years after the initial cleaning.
