The moss on the roof is gone, but not by spraying a 10% bleach/water solution on it. Sweetheart and I got on the roof, and used a flat balded shovel to scrape off the moss. I then sprayed it with water, and scrubbed it with a brush, then repeat rinsed. The following morning, I got over there early and raked and bagged 99% of the moss. The roof looks much better...

You can kind of see the process, even though they are different parts of the roof. The final step was applying a heavy coat of the bleach water solution. The solution upsets the pH  balance of the moss and kills it...supposedly.

The weekend came and went without a single buyer looking at the house, which has me a bit concerned. I'd rather be done with the house, and square away some debts, replenish the saving, and pay for a new vehicle. Anyway, the list.... 

  The List:

  • Spray 10% bleach solution on roof moss to kill it. (2nd of 3 applications) or brush and hose off
  • 1 new small curtain in master bathroom
  • Paint outside trim around doors that were installed a year ago.
  • Restore hardwoods. Under contract!!!
  • Make the under the sink in the main bathroom more attractive (hide water damage).
  • Clean under carport
  • Cut two small trees down in backyard.
  • Repaint quarter round in boys old bedrooms. 
  • Clean along back fence line.

  1. Keep up the battle, and don't give up. Here in Mn homes are selling. One was for sale and sold in about a week or two. Some have been for sale since last fall are now sold. Only one home near us was taken off the market, but I think the real estate agent didn't do their best to show the property.

    1. Thanks for the encouraging words. Sweetheart says that I'd fret if the house was up for rental, which is very true. In God's own time....
