Does Algae and Moss Damage my property?

The short answer is yes. The recipe for algae and Moss is when you combine areas with high amounts of moisture in the air mixed with shady areas that don’t get hit with sunlight.



Algae: Algae itself doesn’t damage your roof or your siding but it sure damages the curb appeal.



Moss: Moss over time can lead to damaging the roof by getting into and underneath your shingles over time. It is imperative to neutralize the moss before it spreads and causes costly repairs.

A lot of people believe you can go rent/purchase a pressure washer and spray away. This old high-pressure method will push water into unwanted places which can possibly lead to water damage and/or peel the paint off of your home. The proper method to protect your property by washing your house is by using a new softwash system. The new soft wash system effectively kills the algae and moss, leaving your home looking brand new again.

  1. You’re right about moss damaging roof shingles. Letting moss go is the fastest way to destroy an entire roof. Soft wash it every few years and it’ll last for ages.
