Roof Cleaning: Two Best Methods for Homeowners

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we’ve got moss up here in the PNW. Try one of these two methods out next time you need to stop it from growing on your roof.

Method #1: Zinc Sulfate Monohydrate (Powder Method)

While Zinc sulfate monohydrate lacks the stopping power of our preferred method, it is a cost effective alternative to professional cleaning which is why most homeowners opt for it when it comes time to treat the moss on their roof.

Method #2: Sodium Hypochlorite (Softwash Method)

Our preferred method of roof cleaning, sodium hypochlorite (bleach) is what roof manufactures reccommend for treating organic growth on your roof.
