Dirty Roofs Cause Moss

Aerial View

All of us eat a little bit of it, some play in it and most of us breathe it. Some of our sports are named after it. We have filters, vacuums, dustpans, and Swiffers to take care of it. Yes, I’m talking about dirt, and dirt can be a big player on your roof. In fact, it’s one of the biggest causes of moss on a roof.


Our atmosphere is filled with dirt. It gets into everything – all the nooks and crannies. When dirt rests on your roof, just add water and watch the magic happen. Moss.

Even after you remove moss and add a treatment, somehow, someway, it comes back. We had to ask ourselves, “Why does the moss keep coming back?”

Well, we got with the chemical company that manufactures our treatment and we learned that if we rinse off the dirt, the moss doesn’t reappear. It’s as simple as that! That’s why we warranty our services and will call you to schedule a check-up when the time comes. We want to make sure that the moss we worked so hard to remove, doesn’t come creeping back. It’s not really ever just about the one step of removing moss from the roof. Regular well-care check-ups are how we keep your roof clean and healthy.

Roof Life of Oregon services over 11,000 roofs in Portland. In doing that, we’ve learned what it takes to remove the moss and keep it off. Schedule a free roof inspection and let us get to work removing the dirt.
