How Important is Roof Cleaning?

Although it is often overlooked, the roof of your home is one of the most important structures as is offers protection from the elements and provides insulation by retaining heat in winter and cool air in summer.

Since roof tiles are made of limestone and are porous they can soak up moisture like a sponge and quickly become breeding grounds for algae, moss, mildew, etc.

Layers of moss, mildew, and lichen cause heat to stay trapped in your attic and home. Your HVAC unit will work overtime trying to keep your home cool. In addition to heat retention, the growth will retain moisture. Heat and moisture are a perfect combination for more algae and fungus growth The grow can work its way between and below tiles causing leaks and will shorten your roof’s lifespan.

This is what we are looking to wash off your roof...

Algae
Black streaks and stains on your roof may be from a form of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. Dark green algae is commonly called black mold but Algae is not the same as mold. Algae is more common and not as dangerous to humans. We will typically, see algae first show up on the north side of a roof where there is limited sun exposure. The result is hot spots that fail to reflect the sun causing issues with temperatures and higher cooling costs. These hot spots can also damage the roof significantly over time. Once the roof algae Gloeocapsa Magma lands on the roof, it will have to be killed and removed or it will continue to spread. It feeds on the nutrients in the shingles and as it rains, the algae spreads down the roof causing black streaks. If not taken care of this algae will take over the entire roof in a few short years turning the whole roof black.

Mold
Mold on a roof looks like dark-colored blotches, that are often green, brown, or black. Mold grows when water is stagnant or absorbed, such as when your roof leaks or has a condensation area. Over time, this moisture can foster bacteria and mold, which may work its way to the underside of the roof and supporting structures. This has negative repercussions on the integrity of the home and your family’s health. Prolonged exposure to areas infested with mold can cause serious respiratory illness and distress.

Mildew
If you notice a powdery substance on your roof, this may be evidence of mildew. Mildew is bacteria, like mold, that ranges in color from black to pink. This is typically caused by a poor drainage system and can have detrimental effects on your roof and health. Mildew spreads fast, even more quickly than other harmful growths.

Lichens and Moss
When you see a moss-covered roof, know that there is a good chance that it also leaks. Lichens and moss will wreak havoc on your roofing and often appear in green fuzzy patches or round green circles on the surface. Over time, these growths will take over and cover your roof causing deterioration and problems that may lead to damage. They dig into your shingles finding weak spots and exacerbating any weak or worn areas. Eventually, a major roof repair or replacement will be required.
