In addition to our other services we are now proud to offer low pressure roof cleaning. Those ugly stains and black streaks on your roof are caused by mold and algae growth. Besides the unsightly appearence, this growth can and will damage your roof leading to leaks, foundation problems, and pre-mature roof failure. Using our low pressure roof cleaning method we can safely and effectively remove this growth and restore your roof to it’s “like-new” condition.
Why low- pressure?
Many pressure washing and roof cleaning companies are still using high-powered pressure washers to blast away the mold, grime, and growth on your roof. Your roof tiles or asphalt shingles are NOT designed to withstand this kind of high pressure. Look at it like this. Mold and algae grow roots that attach to and penetrate the surface of your roof. This leads to cracked and eroded tiles/ shingles. The possible faults of blasting an eroding surface with high-pressure are apparant even to an untranined layman. Besides the possibility of further erroding the roofs surface, high pressure is known to force water between and below your tiles/ shingles, effectively wearing your roof down much more quickly nature would and causing problems that either didn’t exist before or are now much worse than before the cleaning. The last, but not at all the least, important reason to not use high pressure is because it doesn’t really work. As stated before, the whole reason to clean your roof in the first place is to remove the mold and algae that’s growing up there. While high pressure does “appear” to remove the stains, it fails to actually treat the problem, and instead only deals with the symptoms. High pressure doesn’t work because it only removes the stain and does not effectively “kill” the growth that caused the problem in the first place. Home owners who have thier roofs cleaned in this manor can expect the growth to reappear much sooner (sometimes within 6 months) than those who hire a copany using the proper roof cleaning procedures.
Our roof cleaning solution can usually be applied from the ground or roof line. This way we can avoid unnecessarily walking on and potentially damaging your roof. To clean your roof we utilize a low pressure “roof cleaning” method. We apply our specialized roof cleaning solution with low pressure pumps (under 100 psi). The solution starts to work on your roof immediately, effectively killing the growth not just on the surface, but all the way down to the roots. After the solution has done it’s job, we rinse it off and your roofs as good as new. You can expect this cleaning to last at between 5-10 years, and you can rest assured knowing that you will get the most out of your current roof before needing a replacement. All roof cleanings include a free gutter inspection/ cleaning.
