As the days draw shorter, and the fall and winter months approach, now is the best time for local residents take all preventative steps to prepare your business or residence for the upcoming fall and winter seasons. One of the more necessary services includes professional roof cleaning in Seattle, which is best completed prior to the cold rainy weather that the winter season typically brings.
Moss grows best on top of other moss and thrives in damp and humid conditions. Proper removal of any existing moss, debris, or algae is a necessity in order to prevent moisture getting in through cracks and causing extensive rotting over time. When left untreated, algae and moss can eat through the material on your roof and cause unsafe and unsightly damage.
Professional roof cleaning and regularly scheduled maintenance can prevent larger issues from occurring later down the line, increase the overall lifespan of the roof, and restore the overall beauty of your property.
Some of the most common issues seen when regular roof cleaning is not completed can include:
Ignoring debris or moss buildup on your roof can cause rotting of shingles, and in severe cases can lead to the need for a brand new roof.
Leaking Inside the Property
Growing in-between and under shingles, moss can cause structural damage and serious decay to the integrity of a roof. The accumulation of moss and debris can lead to costly repairs and decay which can cause leaks inside the home.
Unsightly black stains that appear on the north side of roof tops are most commonly dead algae. The north side of roofs receive the least amount of sun and remains damp for a longer period of time.
Moss significantly shortens the life span of a roof with shingles, and like a sponge can absorb around to 15-30 pounds of water per patch while saturating the materials below. It is essential for any property owner who is interested in a roof that lasts for years ahead that the roof is kept clear of moss and debris through all seasons and weather conditions.
The remaining days of summer is the best time to schedule professional roof cleaning and maintenance to determine if there are any issues or leaks that should be addressed before the rainy weather returns. Our roof care specialists use only the safest removal tools and techniques and never power wash.
