Scroll using material.mainTextureOffset makes the texture very distorted

Hey, Everyone, I am using a simple line of code to scroll the texture in material to get a moving background feel.

    public float scrollSpeed;
    private MeshRenderer backgroundImage_Menu;
    private float offset;
    private void Start()
        backgroundImage_Menu = GetComponent<MeshRenderer>();

    private void Update()
        offset += (Time.deltaTime * scrollSpeed) / 10f;
    //    backgroundImage_Menu.material.SetTextureOffset("_MainTex", new Vector2(offset, 0));
        backgroundImage_Menu.material.mainTextureOffset = new Vector2(offset, 0);

Here is the pretty basic code to scroll the texture. But using it makes the texture scroll but distorts it from the side it started moving(It’s hard to understand what I said, so Attaching an Image)

This is what the texture looks like

And, this is what happens after scrolling for a while

Do you see what’s happening here? I have no idea why it’s happening. This used to work before. I have used it before and it worked last time. But, I am not really sure why it’s happening this time. I also checked with the official unity document here and they did pretty much the same thing. Can this be a bug? Please any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you :),

stay safe during this pandemic,

In the import settings of your background texture, change the Wrap Mode to “Repeat”
