Roofing Maintenance Checklist
- Remove all leaf debris
- Cut branches back from the roof and walls six feet
- Clean gutters and downspouts

Roof Leaks can Be Deadly
Once these toxic byproducts of a roof leak are allowed to continue unabated, the entire roofing structure, attic insulation, air conditioning/heating ducts and ceiling/wall/floor materials may need to be replaced to prevent serious health problems that can occur when the toxic fungi and mold spores are released into the indoor air system of your New Brighton home or business. Black mold has been well documented to cause many serious respiratory problems in both asthmatic and healthy people’s lungs. If you notice black mold in your attic, ceiling or walls after a roof leak, vacate the structure and have repairs made right away.
