People also ask, how do you use baking soda on roof moss?
This can be done by having it swept and blown once or twice a year (when dry) to remove leaves, twigs and any dirt particles. After blowing, apply baking soda at the ridgeline in late summer. Baking soda will raise the pH, which moss doesn't like.

Also know, what is the best way to remove moss from a roof?
The most effective method of cleaning algae and moss from a roof is with a 50:50 mix of laundry strength liquid chlorine bleach and water. Apply with a sprayer and allow the solution to dwell on the roof surface for 15 to 20 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly with low pressure water.
Does vinegar kill moss on roofs?
A: The insurer should have told you that moss on the roof can cause the shingles to decay, but that will take a long, long time. Yes, vinegar will kill the plants, because vinegar is like acid rain, which can damage any green living thing. Bleach will also kill it. The dead moss will be easier to scrape off.
