If you’re like us, you’ve been feeling the effects of the approaching fall season for the last few weeks. Right now is the peak time for ragweed pollen, which causes many to experience fall allergy symptoms. Not only does pollen affect your sinuses, but it can also damage your home’s exterior. But have you ever wondered how pollen affects your home?

As you’re probably aware, pollen will cling to just about anything, from your car to your shoes to your home’s exterior. During pollen season in the spring and fall, pollen can coat your vinyl siding, windows, roof, deck, and gutters, just to name a few areas.

Most areas of your home, like your siding, windows, and deck, can be cleaned of pollen with a garden hose. Do this periodically throughout pollen season and especially towards the end when pollen is beginning to disappear. Have your home power washed for a deeper clean at the end of the season.

Pollen and mold from falling leaves can stain your roof. However, you probably don’t want to power wash these areas. Instead, call Housetop Roofing to come out and clean your roof and your gutters. While there, we can also perform routine maintenance to ensure nothing else is going on with your roof and gutters.

If you’re tired of yard debris and pollen getting stuck all over your roof, it may be time to update your asphalt shingle roof to a metal roof, making cleaning easier. We can talk to you about your options for roof replacement.

Stop worrying about how pollen affects your home. For all your roofing needs this fall season, call us at Housetop Roofing in Raleigh, NC.
