5 Reasons Roof Cleaning Matters

5 Reasons Roof Cleaning MattersYour roof needs to be cleaned to keep it in good condition. This is your home’s first line of protection against the elements. A good pressure wash roof cleaning will protect your roof from leaks and other problems.


Roof cleaning preserves the tiles or shingles on your roof and saves money. You do not need to replace your roof if it is free of debris, mold, moss, lichens and algae. Even tile, a porous material, can collect mold and moss in the humid Florida climate.

You many not notice that your roof needs cleaning until you see ugly green algae or moss clinging to the shingles or tiles. Algae and moss need sunlight but mold and fungus can grow along the roofline and under the roof where the walls meet the roofing material. This is a darker, damp area where mold and wood fungus can find a home.

Prevent Infestations

Mold and algae can spread into the attic area and cause problems with your air conditioning system. They can also lead to wood rot of the roof’s support system.

You can attract unwanted insects and even small rodents that come in through holes in the roof from deteriorating shingles. Fallen leaves, twigs, dust, and dirt can pile up the on the roof and attract flying and crawling insects.

Sun Reflection

A roof covered with algae and rotten shingles won’t reflect the sun. Florida roofing needs to reflect the sun to keep the attic and the home cooler.

Flat roof buildings generally reflect sunlight. Standing water on flat roofs can lead to the buildup of algae and other unwanted substances.

Curb Appeal

A nice house can look shabby with a dirty, mossy roof. A clean, inspected roof is necessary for good curb appeal if you are selling your home. It tells potential buyers that you have maintained the roof.

Homeowners Insurance

Your insurance company wants to know that your roof is in good, clean condition. A clean roof in good repair will hold up better against high winds and rain.
