The Importance of Removing Moss from Your Roof

Roof Cleaning | ADB Exterior Cleaning | Radnage, Buckinghamshire

As a homeowner, one of the common problems you may face is the growth of moss on your roof. Moss usually appears on roofing shingles because of moisture accumulation, such as rain and dew, especially in shaded areas. Apart from being unsightly, moss can also cause damage to your roof over time. ADB Exterior Cleaning offers an extensive, transformative roof cleaning service to ensure an optimal clean, removing any moss, algae, and debris from your roof, returning it to its original glory.

Preservation of Your Roof’s Integrity

Moss has a tendency to retain moisture, which can infiltrate the small gaps and crevices between roof shingles. As this moisture seeps into your roof, it can lead to the deterioration of roofing materials, including the underlayment and even the roof deck. Over time, this can result in leaks, water damage, and the need for expensive repairs.

Prevention of Structural Damage

At ADB Exterior Cleaning, we not only care about the aesthetics of your property, but we also care about its structural integrity. Moss can cause damage to your roof materials while also causing further damage to your underlying materials, causing wood rot, and weakening the structural components of your roof. If left unaddressed for a long period of time, a weakening structure can cause sagging leading to expensive repairs.

Improve Property Appearance

While the structural damage caused by moss is a significant concern, there is also the matter of aesthetics. A roof covered in moss can significantly detract from the curb appeal of your home. The green, fuzzy appearance of moss can make your roof look aged and uncared for, potentially lowering the value of your property. Maintaining a clean roof throughout the seasons improves the overall appearance of your property, increasing appeal for potential buyers. ADB Exterior Cleaning also offers free drone footage of before and after your roof clean to highlight our transformative service. This drone footage is also ideal for those that may consider selling in the future.

Prevention of Health Hazards

Moss on your roof can create a favourable environment for other organisms, such as algae and fungi, to thrive. These can lead to the growth of mildew and mould, posing a risk to your health and your family’s. Mould spores can become airborne and be inhaled, causing respiratory issues, allergies, and skin reactions for those residing in the home. It’s important to avoid these unnecessary issues with a simple roof clean from ADB Exterior Cleaning. We’ll remove all moss and debris to ensure a clean, safe environment for you and your family.
