Moss, Algae and Lichen are the most common forms of unwanted growth found on our homes due to the region we live in. Unfortunately, moss and lichen can permanently damage the surfaces to which they grow and algae makes any surface unsafe.
Moss and lichen require certain elements and conditions to grow, so before taking any action, homeowners need to know why these growths are occurring in order to fully resolve the situation. Damp, dark areas have a tendency to be the perfect breeding ground for moss, lichen and algae. Often, we have no control over this because of the positioning of the house and the brush surrounding it.
So what’s the solution?
Have us treat and remove the moss and get your home on a yearly maintenance plan. Often, we can continue to treat your home and other surfaces to keep the growths from reappearing after removal.
