Don’t Let Your Roof Become a Lush Garden: Why Regular Roof Cleaning is Essential


Imagine looking up at your roof and seeing a verdant, green landscape stretching across your rooftop. Sounds peaceful, right? Not quite. While moss might seem like a harmless addition to your rooftop scenery, it can actually wreak havoc on the integrity and longevity of your home.

Here’s why regular roof cleaning is essential, and why that patch of green might spell trouble:

Reduced Lifespan:

Moss acts like a sponge, trapping moisture between the shingles. This constant dampness weakens the asphalt, making it more susceptible to cracking and breaking. Over time, this moisture can also lead to the growth of mildew and rot, further accelerating the deterioration of your roof.

Increased Risk of Leaks:

As moss grows thicker, it can lift the edges of your shingles, creating gaps for water to rush in, which can cause serious damage to your ceilings, walls, and the structural integrity of your home.

Damage to Gutters and Fascia Boards:

Moss doesn’t confine itself to your roof. It can also spread to your gutters and fascia boards (the board that runs along the edge of your roof). The trapped moisture can cause these components to rot and decay, leading to costly repairs if neglected.

Mold Growth Potential:

The damp environment created by moss is a breeding ground for mold. Mold spores can travel into your home through ventilation systems and open windows, posing health risks through the air.

Moss Inhibitor for Long-Term Protection:

Moss inhibitor is a product applied after the initial cleaning that helps prevent moss from returning. Our moss inhibitor application is applied directly to the roof and helps prevent further moss growth.
