Mostly common on the north side of your roof in kelowna; due to lack of sun exposure, Moss is a plant that grows naturally in humid environments on just about any surface but most noticeably on roofs and concrete. When it comes to your roof, its is important to address any noticeable moss growth in between the shingles. The green surface acts like a sponge collecting moisture and seeping it underneath the shingles which results in the saturation of your roof sheathing over time and eventually causing the wood to rot and resulting in leaks in your home! Not only that, moss fibers can easily spread from one section of the roof to another as it feeds off lime stone which is a primary composite of asphalt shingles. Take a walk around your property and inspect the north side of your roofs, if you notice any green pillow formation on the north side of your roof simply contact us and we would be more then happy to answer any questions you may have regarding proper treatment methods!


As with any service that requires roof access, our first priority when providing our roof cleaning service is safety. Depending on the roof pitch, we would determine if the pitch is safe and compliant with WorksafeBC regulations to allow us to walk on the roof. If not, we use specialized equipment such as carbon fibre poles to reach and spray the upper sections from a ladder. All of our workers are equipped with the safety gear required by law to ensure we service your home without taking any risks with our crew members and avoiding any incidents that might occur. We use 5 point harnesses, life line assembly, lanyard, fall arrest extension, and heavy duty rated reusable anchors to ensure you tie off and walk safely on any pitched roof.

Additionally, our team is highly experienced in roof cleaning and services over 500 roofs every spring/summer season. Their experience and awareness on roofs will give you the peace of mind to rest assured that the service will be efficient, effective, and risk free.


DO NOT PRESSURE WASH YOUR ROOF. Pressuring washing your roof will wash away the surface of the shingles which acts as a protective layer shielding the shingle composite from sun exposure. Additionally, all that excess moisture being forced in between the shingles will fuel moss growth specially if the moss was not previously treated.

DO NOT WIRE BRUSH YOUR ROOF. Many less experienced contractors would use a wire brush to remove the moss off your roof which leaves your shingles in much worse condition removing the surface grains and reducing the lifespan of your shingles. Additionally, some contractors will jump straight into brushing which only removes the surface area leaving the roots of the moss to grow again from underneath the shingles which is the origin of the moss growth as that is were moisture is trapped.

DO NOT CHEMICAL TREAT YOUR ROOF WITH THE WRONG PRODUCTS. There are many products to treat moss in and around your lawn however when it comes to your roof, it is important to use the proper measurements for your solution depending on the type of roof to make sure your shingles don’t dry out and your cedar shakes dont get discolored and chipped. The main purpose for using chemical compounds is to change the pH levels of the roof environment to either basic or acidic. While both kill moss, an acidic solution for example would dry out the shingles and cause them to wrinkle as opposed to a base solution.
