What’s different about cleaning roofs in the Northern Rivers, than in many other parts of Australia, is that high rainfall at times in conjunction with the semi-tropical temperatures and moisture levels can lead to several different types of mold growth. Roof mold removal is paramount from time to time, as it’s the number one suspect when it comes to premature aging. Roof mold spores when removed, allows the outer layer to stay intact and not break down. Whether it’s painted tin roofs or tiled roofs, this is specifically something worth keeping an eye on, as your home ages.
Another aspect to your roof that often is left unseen and undealt with in the Northern Rivers, is a home’s guttering systems. Roof mold removal can sometimes be as a result of gutters being left to fill with leafy matter that eventually breaks down into soil. As the gutters become clogged, the bacteria in the soil and foliage spreads and creates a habitat for grass and fast growing plants to flower. Home owners often joke about the fact their gutters have been neglected for so long that they have plants growing from them, but in real terms the cleaning or even repair costs of having let your gutters fill like this is often no laughing matter.
Obviously without the proper training and safety equipment, we don’t recommend home owners to conduct any unsafe work on their home’s roof. But, we do recommend people to observe their roof from a safe view point and act upon their observations in due course when they may be seeing a build-up of roof mold, dirty gutters or their roof has been covered in dust for long periods of time. The prevention of removal of roof mold by hiring a good roof cleaner in the Northern Rivers is of importance to your home’s maintenance schedule and we welcome all queries and questions at Full Circle as they may come about.
