Moss Damage to Central Florida Roofs

Moss Damage to Central Florida Roofs

If your roof sits in the shade, then Central Florida weather can cause moss to grow on it. The moss spores get down between the shingles or other roofing materials. They can harm the structural integrity of your roof long before you notice the moss growing if you are just casually observing from the ground. Therefore, you should have your roof pressure washed regularly to prevent moss from getting started.

Treat Moss Roof Problems

It is crucial that you hire a professional, like those at Simple Solutions Exterior Cleaning, to do this job because done incorrectly it can remove additives placed on the roof to protect it from the sun’s harmful rays and other problems. Be very cautious about using a moss powder on your roof because it can damage wildlife. Furthermore, using bleach on your roof because it does not stop moss spores, and it can discolor your roof.

Preventing Moss on Your Roof

After you have had your roof pressure washed, then you should take steps to stop it from returning. While the professional is on the roof, they should clean it so that no debris is present.  If any tree limbs are growing over your roof, then trim them back so that your roof is in the sun. You should also have your gutters and downspouts professionally pressure washed as it is vital that water be able to come off the roof quickly. You may also want to think about having zinc strips installed on your roof. When the rain rolls over the strips, then the zinc stops moss from forming. You will need to have the zinc strips replaced annually.
