Common Signs That You Need Roof Cleaning

There are several signs that it could be time to clean your roof. Ignoring these signs may damage the structural integrity of your roof and your home’s overall value.


If you notice black, brown, or dark green blotches on your roof, you’re dealing with mold. Moisture deposits are the primary cause of mold growth on roofs. Besides ruining your home’s curb appeal, mold can compromise your roof’s structural integrity over time.


Algae, known as Gloeocapsa magma, most prevalent on the north side of the roof due to sun exposure, causes unsightly black stains and streaks on your roof. If you don’t invest in professional cleaning, algae can create “hot spots,” which absorb rather than reflect the sun’s heat. This added heat absorption can undermine your home’s energy efficiency and even damage the roof over time.


The appearance of moss and lichens is another sign that it’s time for roof cleaning. Moss and lichens are both green, but moss has a fuzzy texture while lichens appear as circles. After digging into roof shingles, these growths anchor in, which accelerates roof deterioration.


A poor drainage system can lead to the development of mildew on your roof. The black, light grey, or pink powdery substance can have a detrimental impact on your roof’s structural integrity and your health. Mildew spreads faster than other harmful growths, so it’s essential to remove it right away.
