New Jersey is the ideal location for your home if you want to experience all four seasons. But the recent damp summer could be causing problems to your roof and siding. Wetness combined with umbrellas of shade creates the perfect environment for the three M’s – mildew, mold, and moss, as well as more airborne spores including algae, fungus, and lichen.
An Unclean and Unsightly Roof
The black streaks and green spots you see not only looks bad, but it will damage your roof over time. The shingles can become brittle and deteriorate leading to cracks and eventually overall rot. Then add on a winter snowstorm plus more rain in the spring and uh oh! Moisture may begin seeping in through the roof and into your home causing a whole new set of problems that also damage your wallet.
How to Eliminate the Green?
The best way to remove mold from a roof so it is clean and bright is with a mixture of liquid chlorine bleach and water. Utilizing a sprayer saturate the areas and allow the solution to rest on the roof surface for at least 15 minutes. Have a ladder handy. Be sure to wear old clothes, slip resistant shoes, safety glasses and rubber gloves. Rinse thoroughly with a pressure washer set to low so not to damage any further.
