How To Remove Mold From Roof


What You’ll Need ? ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

Hose Plastic sheeting or tarps (optional) Rubber gloves Breathing mask Bucket Bleach Water TSP Handheld pump sprayer


Step 1 - Protect Your Plants and Lawn Splash the plants and parts of your lawn that are close to the sides of your house with water to protect them from the bleach solution. You can also cover them with tarps or plastic sheeting, which will protect the soil around your plants as well. Make sure that you create a wide radius around your home to be safe.


Step 2 - Make and Apply the Bleach Solution Put on rubber gloves and a breathing mask before proceeding you so you can protect your skin and your lungs from the fumes produced by both bleach and trisodium phosphate. In a two-gallon bucket, create a cleanser composed of 1/4 chlorine bleach and 3/4 water. Then, add one tablespoon of trisodium phosphate (TSP) and mix well. Fill a handheld pump sprayer with the solution, and apply it to the moldy shingles only.


Step 3 - Check for Cleanliness and Rinse Allow the solution to soak into the shingles for at least 15 minutes. If they are severely molded, you may want to give it a little longer. Next, rinse the shingles thoroughly with a garden hose at low pressure. Start from the top shingle and rinse downward to prevent water seepage.


Step 4 - Take Precautions Never use a pressure washer to wash or rinse shingles. The concentrated jet will scrape off the small pebbles on top of the shingles and reduce their water repellency, which will only make your mold situation worse.If you have a consistent problem with mold growth on your roof, consult a roofing professional. Your shingles may be old and in need of replacement, or just in need of waterproof coating to help prevent them from getting too wet.
