Why you should clean your roof and why they get dirty!
The why part of the above question is pretty simple. Most people hire roof cleaning services in the woodlands for a straightforward reason. Beauty Everyone wants a beautiful property. A property that will impress family and friends when they arrive at your hard-earned dwelling. But there are more reasons than beautifying your property and cleaning your roof.
Having a clean roof also increases the efficiency of your property. Lowering your air conditioning bill is always a high priority in the Woodlands area. Having your roof shingles full of mold, mildew, and algae will absorb heat during sunny days. Shingles are designed to reflect heat from the sun, not absorb it.
Why do roofs get so dirty? Let’s face it; the southern states are a hot nasty cesspool of fungus-growing cities. The heat, humidity, and wet condition of The Woodlands and other southern cities allow for the perfect conditions for mold, mildew, lichen, algae, and other fungi to grow on roofs and concrete. While just about everything outdoors is not protected and treated. Most residential roofs are shingle roofs. Shingles these days contain limestone fillers to help add weight.
These limestone fillers are food for algae, mold, and moss. When the algae, mold, and moss feed on these limestone fillers, it decreases the lifespan of your shingles. With this information, you can see how keeping your clean roof increases the life of your roof.
And, of course, you wouldn’t want this mold, mildew, and moss growing inside your house, so why let it build up and grow on the outside?
