Finding mold on your roof or under the shingles can be quite alarming. The best way to respond to this is to get a thorough mold inspection in the attic to determine fully the condition of your roof.
Molds are not harmful to the roof but they will definitely make the roof look bad. Typically, a moldy roof consists of algae, moss and mold.
Algae may look slimy green, black or in blue-green streaks. Mosses are tiny plants that grow in dense vibrant green mats that can cover your roof. Roof molds are typically from inside the attic.
Mold growth is often due to the presence of roof leaks.
There are several ways to clean your roof from moss, algae and mold. Use these tips as your guide when cleaning your roof.
Some homeowners are considering roof waterproofing in order to prevent moisture and mold growth. While it’s good to initiate for your roof’s maintenance, getting help from an exceptional roofing company is still your best option.
