Moss and Algae Removal
MOSS AND ALGAE REMOVAL SERVICES TO BEAUTIFY AND PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY
With the high levels of precipitation annually here in beautiful Vancouver, moss and algae thrive and grow – in places we don’t want them to! In most cases, stains and streaks are caused by a form of algae commonly known as Gloeocapsa Magma. This type of algae thrives in our Pacific Northwest climate.
Buildup of moss on roofs erodes the surface, lifts shingles, and absorbs moisture that promotes decay and leakage. Although the moss and algae organisms do not themselves cause damage they often create the conditions to accelerate the degradation of tiles and reducing the overall life span of roofs and other surfaces. It is most prolific in areas of shade and damp and are typically more common on roof surfaces that are north facing or where trees provide shading.
Moss often grows in the form of moss balls across the roof surface, feeding off the algae beneath. With time, some of the moss balls fall into gutters, resulting in clogging and eventual overspill of rainwater onto the building elevations creating further maintenance problems.
