Want Roof Cleaning in Vancouver WA?
When you notice moss or dirt buildup on your roof, you might feel like it would be a good idea to clean it off. But getting on your roof can be dangerous. This danger is compounded when moss or other slippery obstacles are standing in your way. Don’t take that risk. Instead, call the professionals at St Mary’s Window Cleaning Services for roof cleaning in Vancouver WA.
What treatments do your roof cleaning contractors do?
We offer two distinct treatments. The spray treatment is an effective way to maintain an already clean roof or a roof with a mild and thin spread of moss. An extensive roof cleaning treatment is used for tougher jobs. This all-encompassing roof cleaning service includes cleaning roof shingles, gutter cleaning, moss removal from roof, and much more. We stand behind our work, and though we can’t guarantee you’ll never get moss again our work does come with a 90-day guarantee.
When should you get your roof washed?
A spray-based cleaning is most important when moss hasn’t yet begun to clump on your shingles. It’s at this point when you can avoid the potential damage that comes with larger moss clumping. Moss may be growing even if you cannot see it. Once it begins to clump, it clogs gutters and downspouts which can lead to additional damage.

We do detailed roof moss removal
Some types of moss are very difficult to remove. Killing these types before removing them helps reduce the amount of brushing, which reduces the wear and tear on shingles. Our comprehensive roof washing is what is needed once clumping has occurred and spray cleaning is no longer an option. Moss can cause extensive damage to a roof, such as:
- Roof Leaks – Moss can block water from running vertically off the roof, causing it to pool beneath the shingles. This causes water damage to the tar paper and roof sheathing, leaving the roof under-protected from the elements. This is the beginning stage of a costly roof repair.
- Prying – Moss rhizomes are capable of reaching around the granules on your roof shingles. As these rhizomes soak up moisture and dry out again, their expansion and contraction cause granules to get pried away from the shingles. The result is shingles that are damaged and less effective.
- Surface Tension Loss – Moss holds in moisture which disrupts the surface tension of the tar in your shingles, causing the loss of granules much like prying. Loss of these is critical, as granules help protect your roof from UV radiation and absorb and dissipate day/night cycle heat.
- Freeze/Thaw – When moss freezes and thaws it loosens up the granules on your shingles. When these granules are stripped the shingles actually lose their water repellent properties causing tar shingles to dry out.
