Roof cleaning and roof moss removal has become very popular over recent years, but what are the benefits of roof cleaning?
Mosses, lichens and algae growing on the roof of your home can be unsightly. One of the most obvious benefits of having your roof cleaned is to increase the ‘curb appeal’ of your property. This may be something that you consider having done in advance of putting your house on the market as part of sprucing up the exterior of your home.
In addition to a large build up of moss affecting the appearance of your roof, it can also become problematic when it continuously falls into your guttering, causing blockages or worse still when falls on the ground surrounding your home and can become slippery and unsafe. Ultimately removing moss from your roof tiles will save you the stress and cost of constantly having to clear and unblock your guttering.
The biggest benefit of having your roof cleaned and removing the moss from your roof tiles is that it will prevent long term damage to your roof. Over time the roots of the moss will take hold in the top layer of the your roof tiles which can cause decay to the tiles and ultimately compromise the integrity of your roof. The longer you leave it, the worse it will become and the harder it will be to remove, so acting in a timely manner when you notice a build up of moss on your roof can save you money.
