We've been in the business of delivering award-winning roof moss removal & treatment service for several years now and I'm always surprised at how many different answers customers get from different companies. So is there a best time of year? When is the best time to clean your roof? Let's answer these questions and try to clear up some myths and misconceptions about roof moss removal.
Spring typically signals the start of the roof moss removal season. Warmer weather and fewer rainy days means that this is the perfect time to get your service done. However, the official start isn't a fixed date. Each year, rain and weather plays a role in finding ideal scheduling for your service.
Summer is the best time of year to get roof moss removal and treatment service done on your home or business. Hot, dry weather makes the moss crumble away easily which translates to better roof preservation overall. Summer is also the busiest season, so be sure to book early if at all possible.
Fall on Vancouver Island is typically still quite hot and dry, so roof moss removal and treatment is still ideal during most of the fall season. However, like spring, we can sometimes see unpredictable wet weather towards the last few weeks. If fall is approaching, get on top of booking your service ASAP. If you've identified a moss problem on your roof you can guarantee it will get worse over the wet winter months.
Winter is a very difficult season to book service. Typically during early winter we focus on getting customers gutters ready for the rain and wet. We wouldn't recommend booking a roof moss removal mid-winter, as the growth tends to be quite vigorous during this time. Removal during winter adds undue stress and wear to your roof and becomes quite difficult to reliably schedule. MossAway has an official off-season each year, where we rest up and ready ourselves for another busy spring, but you can always find someone out there, happy to make a buck, who might do work during the off season.
In the end, it's all about finding a business you can trust. MossAway takes great care to abide by WorkSafeBC regulations and our service has earned us quite the positive reputation throughout Greater Victoria. If you're looking to get rid of some roof moss this year, ask us for a free quote. No hassle, no pressure.
As the days get longer here in Victoria, roof moss removal season is fast approaching. With over 315mm of rain in November alone, it's safe to say we've had a pretty wet winter. With heavy rainfall comes heavy moss growth and we're expecting a busy spring 2022 season.

When is the best time to do roof moss removal?
Roof moss removal here on the west coast is typically best done during dry weather. The hotter and dryer it is, the easier it is to remove moss safely from your shingle. It also gives the treatment more time to do its work and sterilize the surface to prevent grow-back.
Shy should I choose MossAway?
We feel there are a number of great reasons to choose MossAway for your roof moss removal project including safety, reputation, quality, speed, friendliness, and reliability - just to name a few. Perhaps one of the best reasons to choose us in 2021 is our new Moss Free Membership, which we'll talk about next...
How do I keep moss off my roof for good?
Here on the west coast, keeping moss off your roof is like trying to keep rain off your roof. It's just another force of nature we have to deal with as west coasters. The best you can do is find the most affordable way of keeping moss off your roof - and here is where MossAway really has you covered.
MossAway goes above and beyond the competition by offering a free membership to each of our moss removal customers called the Moss Free Membership™. Every year MossAway will send out one of our specialists to inspect your roof and evaluate the situation. If we see an area where a spot treatment is needed, we make the recommendation. In tackling the problem this way, our customers pay around $100 - 200 to treat the problem proactively, rather than $1100+ to treat the problem reactively. If our projects are correct, MossAway will save customers close to $240/year over a 14 year period, or a grand total of over $3,100! Over the complete life o a 25 year roof, MossAway customers will save a grand total of over $6,600 or $265/year in roof maintenance.
