So, IF you had heavy infestation of lichen/moss, what can you expect once our process is complete?
For cedar, composite, and tile roofing, if the area treated suffered heavy lichen and moss infestation like you see to the left, its important to know that this growth has an established root system anchored in your shingle material. Imagine pulling a live weed from your flower bed. Plan on the roots tearing out part of the soil and causing damage to the surrounding "good" growth. The theory is much the same with lichens and moss on shingles. Although the entire growth is dead, the roots will require time to dehydrate and release naturally from the shingle material. To achieve the best possible outcome, rain, wind and sunshine safely and gently complete this process, preserving and restoring your roof to its intended health and beauty.
In very extreme circumstances, it may require we return to rinse away the remaining debris.
The Importance Of What's Next
Our solution process can be customized using it in combination with pressure-washing to achieve stunning results on hard surfaces like concrete, pavers and stone materials. When used appropriately, pressure washing is a highly effective means for aggressive cleaning. Being aware of the risks associated with this process will help to avoid damage to the target area due to operator error. At 3000 PSI+ (or more), pressure washing can easily and permanently destroy your property while voiding warranties, in addition to it being more time consuming and less effective! With algae and lichen infestation, pressure washing will actually spread the organism that you are attempting to eliminate without treating and killing it first. We limit the use of high-pressure cleaning to heavy-duty hard surfaces, or as a means for removing tough stains and stripping.
