Living in West Palm Beach, one of the most humid places in the USA, there is a chance your roof or another roof you've passed by is showing signs of mold. A humidity level of 60% or higher can put your roof at risk of mold growth. (The average relative humidity in June for WPB ranges from 69%-84%.) Have you seen black streaks, brown and green mold growth, or discoloration in these roofs? If yes, then it's a good idea to get the roof checked for mold before it becomes costly if it isn't already. Check out some tips we've gathered below to see how you can stop mold from being your worst nightmare.

GET FAMILIAR WITH MOLD

It's true that mold spores are airborne and thrive in a humid and hot environment. This means a roof that's not in direct sunlight, is collecting debris, and has drained water seeping into the foundation is a perfect roof for mold. 

CHECK YOUR ROOF

By regularly having inspections done, you'll be able to tell right away if mold is present in your roof. If your roof is in shade and not in direct sunlight, inspections are especially important to get to make sure there is no mold. Experts suggest getting your roof checked annually. 

CLEAN YOUR ROOF

Properly maintaining your roof by getting it annually inspected, regularly removing any debris, and cleaning your roof can prevent costly damages to your roof in the long run.
