Is there anything I can use (spray etc) to remove green moss from our sloping tiled roofs?
I probably wouldn't get a ladder and remove it by hand, I would get someone in to do it, but if there was an easy way of removing it by spraying it with some kind of weed killer so it dies and drops off then I would give that a go ? Any ideas?
Location: oop north in a spec-c.Now sold and starting on a classic ra track/sprint/road car
forget using pressure washers they damage the tiles and push the moss/spores even further under the tiles best thing to use is a mixture of copper sulphate/water sprayed over the moss or if you can stretch a length of copper wire along your ridge tiles that will have the same affect over a perod of time.
A long shot but I have been using a product called VIRESCO to kill off Nitrates in my pond. If you kill the Nitrate you starve and kill off algae. I had a chat with the guy that sells it and he has been using the product to kill moss on his patio slabs. He's on the net.
But what's wrong with a bit of moss on the tiles? dl
We have used Jeyes fluid which worked well.......but any fungicidal wash will have desired effect.The best way is to run 50mm copper strip on either side of ridgeline...not cheap but solves problem for good.
Some tile designs have an interlocking channel which is blocked by growths such as moss etc...but as long as theres not too much growth it rarely becomes a problem.
