The technician will arrive and sweep any large vegetation off the roof with a soft bristle brush. After all the large vegetation is removed, the roof will then be sprayed with a chemical solution using the soft washing technique. The tech will apply a water barrier down on all areas of house prior to spraying each side of home. Depending on the pitch of the roof, this will either be done with a ladder or the technician walking on the roof. This application will kill the majority of the organisms living on the roof within ten minutes. The customer will be able to note a marked difference in the moss on the roof as it will start to wither and change color. However, it will not look immediately clean and will take 4-6 weeks for the growth to completely die & be washed away by rain water.
