Roofs Moss are mere green plants that grows without disturbance in moist areas. Regardless of its nature or other surrounding factors. The moss plant comes in different species and are mainly flowerless and seedless. Research and findings also shows that all moss cannot survive under any type of environment, they must have adequate moisture to grow healthily, since they do not posses any root system to suck and store up water.
Roofs Moss can be very frustrating at times; and they’re easily recognized once at sight. The deep green colors and light leave characteristic of the moss makes it stand out from normal flowering plants.
Is it that your building apartment has not lasted up to six months old – yet you’re noticing the presence of Moss all over the roof. This maybe because of the climatic condition of the environment, or perhaps high moisture content of your roof at regular occasion. If you choose to eradicate and prevent further growth of this moss, and future occurrence. It is recommended that you stick to the moss curb practices.
Without moving ahead to invite your domestic consultants, roofing repairs company or environmental sanitizers, you can easily do the job yourself by sticking to one or two effective strategies. Below are some of them…
Offset the Shade that Promotes Growth
Like noted earlier, Moss only grows at areas of wet and cool conditions. The very first step is to observe your roofing style and the position of your building. Is it directly under the tree, or any form of shade? If so, consider cutting off the branches of the trees that spreads out to your building, or use other strategic means to enact your plans. Once this is done, there will be a bit exposure to the atmosphere, thus, the flow of sunlight over the roof to dry excess wetness or moist.
Upgrade the PH Level of the Environment
Upgrading the PH level of such an environment would mean turning the surrounding environment into being extremely acidic. This will lead to discomfort and loss of moisture and support to the extracting end of the moss. And it would start dying off gradually until finally withered.
Extract Off the Moisture or Water from the Moss
Extracting the moisture off the surrounding area or the moss itself is nonetheless, a bit difficult. But it is sure realizable. In some cases, gas chemicals are sprayed on the rooftop environment to cause a decline in the moisture composition and holding capacity. Some chemicals are also sprayed directly on the Moss to kill dry off the moisture, thence, killing it thoroughly.
