Vancouver Island has many diverse environments, not only in its residents but in the make-up of its homes and businesses as well. These differences are visible from the ground-level but that doesn’t mean that roofing is all the same. Your roof is designed to protect your property and everyone in it but only a proper maintenance program can protect it. Instead of trying one particular type of shingle, roof care means treating all different types of materials. For instance, asphalt shingles are commonly used and do have their advantages but are also opened to moss, rot and water damage. This sounds scary, but never fear, our Gorillas are near! Professional Nanaimo roof cleaning and moss removal can help care for your higher surfaces, while you rest easy on the ground.

Managing Moss

An average roof cleaning service doesn’t do more than push debris off of rooftops and onto lawns. Organic cast-off from surrounding plant life, like leaves, are designed to hold onto moisture. This means that as items layer over themselves, dampness is trapped, resting against vulnerable surfaces. If this is the case, moss growth isn’t far behind. As invasive growth latches onto roofing material, it softens, weakens and wears away sensitive areas. This means that your structure is no longer sound and can emit rainfall, snow melt, debris and even pests. Instead of letting the outside in, have a Gorilla care for your roof moss removal.

Once moss has taken hold, it can feel impossible to get rid of. Basic chores, like getting gutters cleaned are a completely different ballpark than managing a roof, de-mossing surfaces and keeping your balance at those heights. Every year, property owners try to tackle their properties with an amateur cleaning method. Wire bristle brushes and a chlorine bleach solution might work in certain areas but when combined with softened decking, these can mean big trouble. Instead of opting for harsh treatments like power washing, our Gorillas know how to create a cleaning solution customized to your unique space.

Trusting a Gorilla With Your Moss Removal Services

Many property owners jump to window cleaning, gutter cleaning or pressure washing to improve curb appeal but so does moss and algae removal. The right exterior cleaning method extends the life of your roofing, all while leaving your property looking its best.

In the same way that pointing a pressure washer at roofing isn’t a good idea, so is applying the wrong type of moss killer. Not many people will voluntarily introduce harsh chemicals into their living space. By switching over to an eco-friendly approach, our specialists keep the bad stuff out, without sacrificing results.

After years in the industry, our team of experts have come up with a system to clean homes, commercial buildings and strata properties safely. Instead of pushing mess from one area to another, a Gorilla makes sure that everything that falls from your rooftop is bagged up and responsibly removed. Instead of letting clients assume that the job is done, before and after pictures help to keep property owners in the loop, all from the safety of the ground.
