Roof Cleaning

Why is it So Important to Keep Your Roof Clean?

We all want to be good neighbors and we want the neighbors in our community to know that we appreciate how proper home maintenance can affect the overall value of not only our home – but also, of the home’s surrounding us. While that alone, may seem like reason enough to keep your roof clean, there are also significant ways that cleaning your roof can help to protect your investment and add more years onto the life expectancy of your roof.

Benefits of Cleaning Your Roof

  1. Get Rid of Black Streaks: Those ugly black streaks can begin affecting even a new roof fairly quickly. The cause of the streaks is generally algae (although it can be dirt and debris also). Aside from aesthetics, those black streaks can begin to erode your roof underneath and provide a great breeding ground for mold to cultivate.
    Did You Know That in the harsh South Florida sun, dark surfaces on your roof can actually begin to influence how efficiently your home cools? Therefore, cleaning your roof may actually help save you some money on your power bill!
  2. Remove Harmful Mold and Moss Growth: Even a clean looking roof can have mold problems. In our wet, humid climate, moss and mold often grow on our roofs and can sometimes remain undetected because you can’t actually see it from the ground. If mold intrudes into the home, it can cause health problems. At a minimum, the moss and mold can begin to erode and eat away at roofing materials if not removed regularly.
    Keep Your Gutters Clean and Clog Free: Cleaning your roof is not only about scrubbing the surface of the materials, but also allows you to remove debris, leaves and twigs which might otherwise end up in your gutters. Clogged gutters can sag and separate from the roof and if water cannot flow freely, you are likely to have leak issues in the near future.
  3. Extend Your Roof’s Life: A single tile or shingle may not be expensive, but continually replacing them due to damage and erosion can begin to add up. Not only that, but as your roofing materials erode, it is more likely that you will experience a roof leak – which can cause interior damage, warped framing and eaves, or worse. By cleaning your roof on a regular basis, you minimize the opportunity for your tiles and shingles to erode before their time – giving you a longer lasting roof and more peace of mind.

ROOF SOFT WASHING

If you are searching for the method of cleaning your roof that the majority of roofing manufacturers recommend, as well as the most effective method to eliminate what's cultivating on the surface of your roof or house, then the soft washing process, is the answer you have been looking for.

The soft wash solutions utilized in soft washing, aids in the break-down of contaminants and infestations, so they can be easily washed away. They do all the work without all the pressure that you have with pressure washing. Our solutions are water based and biodegradable, meaning they break down into carbon and water within twenty (20) days after their introduction into the environment; leaving no contaminants behind.

Roof Soft Washing – will eliminate unsightly and harmful discoloration and black streaks from your roof to boost curb appeal and extend the life cycle of the roof. Leaving mold, mildew, tree sap, and bird droppings, etc. to “fester” on your roof, will degrade the integrity of the tile or shingle and drastically decrease the “useful life” expectancy of the roof. In fact, many roofing manufacturers even stipulate in their warranty’s, that not maintaining the cleanliness of your roof, can negatively affect the warranty itself.

Finally, it is important to note….. that many roofing manufacturers may void your roofs warranty, if they can determine that the roof was not properly maintained and cared for.

The Most Prudent Way to Maintain Your Roof and guarantee it lives a long and healthy life, is
to hire a professional roof cleaner. Simply schedule an annual appointment as part of a regular
maintenance plan. This method of maintenance will ensure, that your roof takes care of you the
way it should, for decades to come.
