Why should I have my roof cleaned?
There are many reasons why one should get there roof cleaned. Stop the damage that the moss , lichen, and algae are causing. These organisms, are feeding off the organic material in your shingles. This material is the food source for the organisms and creates a perfect breeding ground for them. The longer the organism is left untreated the more damage it will cause.
Roofs that are covered with moss, lichen and algae can no longer efficiently reflect sunlight. Algae covered shingles absorb heat, which creates a heat box in your attic. This will potentially increase your cooling costs.
Your insurance company can cancel your policy if your roof is left untreated and continues to eat away at your roof.

The Final Result
What Causes Roof Stains?
Moss has a shallow root system which keeps moisture trapped within your roof for extended periods of time. During this time the moisture begins to cause wood rot and your shingles begin to erode. Scheduling a roof cleaning will help you avoid permanent damage caused by roof moss.
Roof stains caused by algae are most common in heavily shaded areas. This is usually the northern and western surfaces on your roof. And just like moss, moisture accelerates itâ€™s growth. As the algae grows, it begins to spread throughout the roofs surface area feeding away at the organic material. Humid West Michigan summers have created a great environment for roof algae to spread quickly.
Lichens are a composite organism of fungi and algae growing together in symbiosis that will appear green, or gray like and sometimes even yellow that form on roofs from eating away at the organic matter the shingle is manufactured with. They work together to spread throughout the roofs surface. Shaded areas and dampness will speed up the growth process. These organism will form its root and embed itself within the shingle and causing roof stains.
