I promised I would talk about my Saskatoon trip, but I won’t be doing that today. I have something more important to talk about than a pleasure cruise across Canada with horses. In the past week, I’ve had to deal with a pesky pest that’s been damaging my roof shingles for years: moss growth!
Indeed, moss is a wonderful part of nature and looks splendid in its environment, but I was starting to get roof leaks and now I know why. I never thought the beautiful moss on my roof could be so harmful to my home until I did my research. I’ve since learned the best way to treat a roof moss problem and want to share it with you all for anyone else who might have the same problem.
I found that the best way to clean your roof of moss is actually with a wire brush. We don’t have many roof cleaning companies out here in my way so I had to call some experts in Vancouver for tips. Wire brushes seem to be the best method because you can do it yourself, it’s affordable and it’s also a good work out. It took me four hours to scour my roof of all moss clumps with a wire brush and now my roof shingles look brand new again. The roof cleaning Vancouver expert over the phone told me I’m also supposed to spray a special solution onto the roof to prevent the moss from growing back but I’m fine with just being all-natural and cleaning it myself next time it grows too much.
That’s another Spring house chore solved for the spring. I feel good about it because I’m sure the work also raised the value of my home by a substantial amount. Next thing I got to do is clean the gutters and windows, but fortunately we do have companies in my area that can do that for a low cost so I won’t need to get my hands dirty with that. Nonetheless, my hands are still dirty tending to the beeves and horses.
Such is life!
