Green might be your favorite color but not on your patio, walkways, steps, or driveways! Moss, along with mildew and mold, can cause several potential problems and deteriorate your property investment. Some may think the moss is homey and charming but think again. Slick and hazardous surfaces won’t be attractive when you hit the floor! If you observe closely, moss holds moisture, which leads to deterioration and a shorter lifespan of the area. Plus, the moss collects debris on the surface, furthering the hazardous potential for travelers. The soil around the moss patch begins to get slimy when water hits it and settles. In cold temperatures, water sitting in these areas can freeze and thaw and penetrate through the surface causing long term damage.
The accumulation of debris and moss is unattractive to your hard surfaces’ overall appearance on the exterior. Add an easy curb appeal fix by preventing slippage. Seek out a professional to use the correct moss and mold-killing detergents. Application and agitation of these products are also important in being effective while not damaging surfaces. Prolong your patios, walkways, and driveway and keep your home and family safe by removing mold, mildew, and moss around your home’s exterior surfaces.
DIY vs. a Professional Moss, Mold and Mildew Remover
You may want to tackle small areas where you can use a scrub brush or hose, but larger surfaces may be a task that requires a professional. We have the right tools and know what detergents are necessary for the issue at hand.
ProClean Roof Cleaning can evaluate the surface and substance to be removed and give you a free estimate of what it will take to remove. Our detergents will soak into the nooks, crevices, and small pinholes of the surface to remove debris and specks of mold that can multiply. Our method of low-pressure washing will preserve the integrity of the surface. Be cautious with high-pressure washing. Too much pressure can ground off the facade’s granular layers and expose it to more of the same mold and growth. We protect the hard exterior from further damage from too much pressure while at the same time cleaning it.
We also will give you prevention advice and evaluate the cause of the mold, mildew, and moss growth. Add us to your house-cleaning list of professionals to call and get us on the schedule. Keep your home in tip-top shape and avoid any hazards! Call today for a free estimate
