It is this act of full sterilization on the roof that it will be allowed to stay clean for an extended period of time.

Moss can develop a root system just like a plant. The same goes for lichens. None of these should be abruptly removed from the roofing shingle. Doing so can result in granule loss and scars can develop on the roof. We treat roof moss the same by applying a detergent that contains some bleach. This will kill the moss at the root system. The most will die, dry out, and start to decompose. It will wash off little by little with the rain.
