The Many Benefits a Clean Roof Can Have For Your Home

17th March 2020

Every home needs regular, professional roof cleaning by a power washing specialist. At Just Clean, we provide consistent roof washing services that improve the overall kerb appeal of your house. As a homeowner, no doubt you want to do everything possible to keep your home in good condition and avoid otherwise unnecessary repairs.

Benefits of regular residential roof cleaning include:

  • Removing algae and moss that eat away at roofing tiles.
  • Exposing areas of damage in need of immediate repair.
  • Removing corrosive residues from shingles.
  • Reducing silt and mud that winds up in a home’s gutters.
  • Restoring the colour of a roof.

Just Clean will work tirelessly to remove all the offending articles from your roof, cleaning and scrubbing by hand to ensure it is entirely spotless. We have a variety of roof cleaning services and packages available with something to suit everyone’s needs and budget.

Never assume that you can ignore moss, algae, and other such growth on your roof, as it can lead to a damaged roof and dangerous interior water leaks, such as:

  • Moisture damage. Lichens and moss attract moisture to the surface of your roof and they can eventually cause moisture damage if left for too long.
  • Separation of shingles: When lichen penetrates your roof exterior, it can start to grow between your shingles, causing them to separate. This can lead to roof leaks, ceiling damage and other structural complications.
  • Shingle damage: Besides causing shingles to separate, moss on lichen growths will lead shingles to bend and they could look misshapen.

Effects of moss and algae on your roof

Roof moss and algae are especially damaging to a home’s roof, as these contaminants hold extra moisture which causes roofing to tear or become damaged, leading to water leaks.

Over time mosses and algae growths will damage roof tiles. At Just Clean, we remove mosses, and lichens because an untreated roof can also lead to a range of problems including:

  • Erosion of Mortar Joints
  • Capillary attraction of rainwater resulting in roof leak
  • Blocked and damaged guttering and downpipes
  • Drains blocked by roof moss washed from the roof in heavy rain

With our cleaning services, you can add convenience and reduce the time spent on roof maintenance. Just Clean has many homeowners who request roof cleaning services consistently because they value the added convenience that professional assistance brings, hiring professionals ensures that the job is done correctly.
