western washington , whatcom county moss problems

  I just wanted to say how many houses I see daily in whatcom county and sudden valley area that have moss growing on the roof and siding ! Moss does thousands of dollars in damage to homes and is quite easy for the average joe to maintain. Just on my block  90 % need treatment before major damage will occur.  Dont let this eat away and rot your or your friends home. thanks.

Shawn, What is the best solution for moss on concrete. I know you can't use  because of staining so what do you recommend?

 Hi Jo,   moss generally on concrete can be pressure washed to remove,  Check with your local hardware store if you are wanting to chemically clean as most walkways and driveways that need cleaning  go to storm drains that leed  to streams  and can cause eviromental damage.  Thanks, Shawn

Thanks Shawn, I am just so tired of power washing/ scrubbing. I had it all clean and now with all the rain it is back for the fall. I just don't want this to be a project every spring. I will check with the hardware store. Thanks for the thoughts :)
