Roof Leaks can be Hazardous to your Health

Rotting wood fungus, stinky mildew troubles and deadly black mold can all form inside of attic spaces, on drywall ceilings and behind walls. Within just 36 hours after water has infiltrated the structure, your indoor air quality can be ruined forever—or at least until the affected materials are removed and replaced with new ones. White wood fungus can destroy your structural components in just months. Mildew stains can bring smelly and musty odors into the home for good. If black mold is allowed to form, spores that are released into the air can cause serious respiratory problems and is a health hazard to those living or working within the structure. Black mold can grow on all wet surfaces, and can only be removed by replacing the affected materials.

Even if minor damages are present and a roof leak hasn’t happened as of yet, it’s a good idea to tackle the problem long before rain or snow have a chance to enter the structure. While these minor repairs might not seem like a big deal and you feel you can wait for repairs, you couldn’t be more wrong. Once a penetration has been made through the roofing membrane, moisture can enter the structure easily as warm air seeps out of the leak and mixes with cooler outside air. Condensation can occur and create a roof leak, even if it’s not raining.

Preventative Maintenance

Keeping roof leaks and other roofing nightmares at bay starts with preventative maintenance. There are a number of minor roofing dilemmas that can occur simply because basic roof maintenance hasn’t been done properly or in a timely fashion. Preventative care and maintenance ensures that your roofing system stays intact during the day to day rigors it experiences. If you keep the following areas of your roof free and clear debris, you can extend the lifespan of your roofing system and make sure that roof leaks never have a chance to happen.

Monthly Maintenance Checklist

  • Remove leaf debris from roof valleys, against skylights and behind chimneys
  • Clean gutters and downspouts from all debris
  • Sweep soffits and fascia clean and clear of all spider webs, dirt and grime
  • Cut all tree branches at least six feet back from the entire structure
  • Keep vines and other landscaping trimmed away from windows, doors, soffit and fascia
  • Ensure proper drainage is in working order around the drip line of your roofs overhang
  • Perform a visual inspection of all roofing materials
