Signs It’s Time for Roof Cleaning

HomeBlogSigns It’s Time for Roof Cleaning

Depending on the type of roof you have, where it is located, and other factors, you should schedule roof cleaning every 2 to 5 years. Since there are so many factors involved, it is not necessarily a good thing to go by just time passed, but instead about what you are noticing on your roof. Here are some things you could see that indicate roof cleaning should be done soon.

  • Algae
  • Stains
  • Grime
  • Moss
  • Soot
  • Debris

Most of these substances can do damage to your home’s roof if not removed, not to mention that they detract from its appearance, which can hurt the curb appeal of your home and thus its value. Some, such as moss, hold moisture against the roofing material. Others can “feed” on the material, lowering its effectiveness over time. In addition, the presence of some of these can keep water from draining off the roof while adding weight to it. This in turn can act as an invitation to pests and wildlife.
