Roof Cleaning / Moss Removal
Moss can grow almost anywhere – the ground, trees, sidewalks, driveways and roof tops. With a rainy season that can last six months, and large trees that can keep it shaded, moss can grow unimpeded and wreak havoc on your home.
Acting like a sponge on your roof, holding water in place where it can then seep under the shingles, through the underlayment, and into your home. More moss on your roof means more water in your home. This can affect the insulation, joists, and other structural materials in your home.
This moisture, couple with the heat of the home and darkness of the attic, creates an ideal situation for mold or mildew to grow. Mold allowed to grow in the attic – or any part of your home – can cause a health hazard.
In addition to the structural issues with letting moss get out of hand, it can also affect the curb appeal of the home. If you are trying to sell your home, potential buyers will be turned off immediately if your roof is covered in bright green moss.
In addition to moss removal, Quam’s can clean other debris off your roof as well. While not as dangerous as moss, lichen and algae can also mike your roof look run down. Small branches and twigs left on the roof can scrape along the shingles when it’s windy, removing shingle granules, and affecting the usefulness of your roofing.
If you roof has collected moss, lichen, algae, branches, twigs, or anything else that could cause problems, call Quam’s today.
