Why Roof Moss Removal Is So Important to the Integrity of a Home
Moss can naturally accumulate on damp or shaded areas of the roof. While many believe that roof moss is relatively harmless, leaving it unattended can cause lasting damage to the structural integrity.
Roof moss can reduce your home's interior to a flooded mess. If you are concerned, following this guide to learn what roof moss is, why it’s dangerous, and how to remove it.
What is Roof Moss?
Roof moss is formed from a living organism that is not a fungus but acts like one that grows on the damp surface of the roof. Moss can be brown, green, and even yellow. Roof moss can be flat or fluffy and usually collects in shaded or damp areas.
Why is it Dangerous?
Moss growths are not porous. When rain falls, the water collects inside the moss instead of draining through it. If left alone, the roof moss can easily spread and seep deep into the roof. This deep-lying moss causes mold, leaks and will erode the structural foundation. The roof moss can also cause moisture problems in the attic and damage the roof's insulation layer.
How to Best Remove Roof Moss?
There are many methods for removing roof moss. In most cases, professional roof moss removal is required. However, if the amount of roof moss is small, household cleaning tools can effectively clean small mossy areas on the roof.
