Moss, algae and fungi normally begin their life cycle as airborne spores that settles on roofs, the spores on the northern exposure of the roof stand a better chance of survival because that portion of the roof is the last part to dry after rain or morning dew. This raises the humidity on the surface of the tile, thus creating a perfect feeding and breeding ground. While moss, mould (fungi) and algae generally only pose a minimal health danger, some are harmful, especially for older people, younger children and people who suffer from asthma and respiratory problems.
Pressure washing a roof seems like a pretty efficient way of getting rid of moss and vegetation from your roof, however it can cause serious problems. It can lift up the slates or tiles from their fixing or bedding and become loosened and mainly removes the tile layer speeding up the deterioration of the tile itself. The consequence of this is it makes it easier for rainwater to make its way in to your roof space. In addition, as it lifts the slates or tiles, you are also forcing water directly into your roof potentially flooding your attic. At A Bailey Roofing Limited we only use highly effective moss removal products to clear moss from your roof by hand, this way you can have the confidence the integrity of your roof space is protected and won’t be damaged.
