Why You Should Have Your Roof Cleaned

Moss and algae tend to grow and multiply in Texas with more than average rainfall and humidity. For example, it only needs a light breeze to spread the spores from lichens. Soon these will grow and multiply into moss or algae and cluster into clumps.

Nature has certain rules. In the northern hemisphere moss tends to grow profusely on the north side of the roof or in those parts of the roof covered by overhanging branches. Shade blocking out the sun makes it ideal for moss to multiply. The dew falling in the morning or occasional showers anchor on to the moss and this leads to less of evaporation. This in turn triggers of the game of multiplication until the entire roof is slowly taken over and conquered. It is a slow but sure deadly process.

How can this problem be tackled?

Moss can be eradicated provided the house owner has not allowed it get out of hand. It however requires professional help. This is the first important step. There are special roof cleaning tools that tackles the problem at its very base and gently clears the lumpy and heavy moss formations without damaging the roof. It is a very tedious painstaking job and each shingle needs individual attention. In this way about 80% to 90% of the moss is cleared. If the remaining percentage proves to be too tough then it has to be subjected to a cleaning from a professional roof cleaning company. The whole operation will give a new look and extra life to the old roof – the most vital part of the house.
