More Rain – More Moss

Chances are you don’t consider moss growing on your roof attractive. With the coming change in seasons from winter to spring--chances are you’ll be seeing more of it. For most of us, seasonal changes mean rain. Rain equals moisture, and moisture on your roof can result in moss.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   As harmless as it looks, moss can be very damaging not only to your roof, but also to the rest of your home. There is no doubt that extensive moss on a roof can damage the roof by growing under and loosening the shingles, trapping moisture against roofing materials and causing leaks. Moss doesn’t need much to grow; shade, moisture and a temperature between 32 and 70 degrees. By not having a root system, moss doesn’t need soil to grow—making your roof an ideal location.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              There are a few effective methods of killing moss on your roof. Powders or sprays can be found at your local hardware store. They are sprinkled or sprayed on your roof. Some of the dead moss will fall off the roof over time while the rest of it might need a little encouragement. Do not walk on a moss-covered roof-- it is likely very slippery, and do not use a pressure washer on your roof—it can cost you thousands.

Is it safe and effective on outdoor fabric ?

Good question, Bill. Our Outdoor Cleaner is safe to use on almost all colorfast outdoor surfaces including awnings, covers, and even outdoor pillows. However, you must always be cautious. Manufacturers pigment their fabric in so many different ways. Some are really good, like Sunbrella but others you won’t know about, until it’s too late and you have spotted material. To avoid this we always recommend to test a small, inconspicuous area first. You could also contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a bleach based cleaner is safe to use on their material to really cover your bases. As far as effective goes, yes! We have a collection of satisfied customers’ before and after pictures using 30 SECONDS Cleaners on awnings, barbecue covers, pool covers, and an outdoor pillow from a customer on Amazon that will blow your socks off. I’d love to see before and after pictures of the surface you’re working on, too!
