The 17 islands at the mouth of the Fraser River have gone from being inhabited by the Coast Salish native people, to an agricultural hub, to the home of a major boat-building industry, to the multicultural city of Richmond we know today. Home to an Asian population of 60%, Richmond offers more than 400 restaurants and an overabundance of Asian themed shopping malls. If you are in search of some history, look no further than the International Buddhist Temple or the Richmond Culture Centre. Then there’s the beautiful waterfront village of Steveston. Here you can learn about British Columbia’s fishing industry. Although Richmond sees 30% less annual rainfall than the metro Vancouver area, due to being further from the mountains, the colder months bring fog and lots of it. Fog creates moisture which, along with shade, allows for the growth of moss, algae and lichen on the roof of your Richmond property. Whether you own a business or a home, moss growth is unsightly and, left untreated, can lead to permanent damage. Using our Richmond Roof Cleaning Service is a must if you want your roof to last and continue looking its best.
Many property owners attempt to tackle moss removal personally. This can be a bad idea if you are unsure of the proper practices. Scraping and the use of corrosive cleaners can accelerate the degradation of your roof, stripping the protective layer. Pressure washing in the wrong direction allows water to access the wood decking causing rot and leaks. Gorilla Property Services’ Richmond Roof Cleaning Service guarantees the best possible outcome for your property. If your roof is new, regular moss removal and roof cleaning maximises its lifespan and aesthetic appeal. Try our Richmond Roof Cleaning Service on an older roof and the results produced by a little TLC and elbow grease will surprise you.
