A clean roof is better because over time algae and moss will compromise the integrity of your shingles. For the proud homeowner ugly streaking on your roof will make your home appear dingy and unkempt. You mow your lawn and remove debris from your property to keep it looking clean and tidy, a roof is no different.

Also a periodic cleaning can double as a health check up for the current condition of your roof, your home, your most valued possession is protected by your roof.
