Tips For Removing Mold From Your Roof
One of the things that can severely compromise the structural integrity of a roof is mold. While most roofs are designed to last for several decades, allowing mold to grow on your roof can considerably reduce its longevity. That’s why it’s advisable to take quick action when you notice signs that mold is making its way onto your roof. Ignoring roof mold comes with many consequences. Apart from compromising the entire structure of your home, roof mold can lead to poor air quality and reduce the value of your property. If left unaddressed, roof mold can lead to costly roof replacement and repairs down the road.
There are many things that can cause roof mold, including poor roof ventilation, leaking gutters, condensation on the roof, and wet ceiling insulation.
If you notice mold is beginning to grow on your roof, you should contact experienced roofing contractors to inspect your roof and take the appropriate measures to alleviate the problem. At Beall Contracting, we offer roof mold removal and roof replacement to homeowners and businesses.
Clean Your Roof to Remove Mold
You can spray wash your roof with water and bleach to clean off the mold. Alternatively, you can use trisodium phosphate or other commercially available solutions in the market. Hose off the roof and use a soft-bristle scrub brush to remove the mold.
NOTE: You should not pressure wash your roof as it can cause damage to the shingles.
You should only consider cleaning your roof if you know what you’re doing. This is not the kind of job that you can tackle with trial and error.
Call Roofing Contractors To Help You
Roof mold removal requires experience and the right tools. Besides, it can be dangerous considering that it involves climbing on the roof. If you’re not a knowledgeable and experienced roofing contractor, it’s a good idea to hire roofing contractors to help you. A reliable roofing contractor will come in with the necessary tools to do the job safely and in a timely manner. At Beall Contracting, we are equipped with everything we need to remove roof mold and put in place measures that will prevent roof mold down the road.
You can prevent roof mold by applying a treatment product on the roof that will prevent mold from coming back. Another effective way to prevent roof mold is to install zinc or copper strips on the top ridge.
