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.
