Roof Cleaning Services

Most homeowners understand the investment that they are making when having a new roof put on their home. It is expected that barring a major catastrophe, or extreme environmental occurrence that the roof will last between 20 and 30 years. Unfortunately, in a lot of cases, this life expectancy falls much shorter than estimated.

This is due to microorganisms that develop on your roof gradually eating away at the delicate roofing materials leaving behind holes, cracked seals, and organism growth issues. Some of the microorganisms that form on your roof, around vent pipes and other rooftop equipment as well as along the trim lines are:

  • Mold
  • Mildew
  • Algae
  • Moss
  • Lichen (Small individually unique living microorganisms that spawn from algae and live among fungus)

Our Working Procedure

 

  • These invasive organisms that begin to grow and build their own colonies on your roof eventually affect the structural soundness of your roof’s shingles, tiles and possibly even the framework depending on the type of roofing materials used, as well as the extent of the contamination. All of these things shorten the lifespan of your roof.​
  • The best way to extend your roof’s life and minimize the development of these invasive microorganisms is by having your roof professionally cleaned annually. This is especially important if your roof has a lot of shaded areas or your home faces either north or west as these situations provide the ideal conditions for this type of growth to begin forming.
  • It is important to remember when cleaning or having your roof cleaned that the materials used to build your roof are delicate, some more than others depending on the kind of roof that you have, and they need to be treated accordingly.
  • In addition to dealing with fragile roofing materials, there are also environmental and health concerns that need to be considered when using harsh chemicals that many roof cleaning companies use, such as:
    – Bleach
    – Sodium Hypochlorite
    – Trisodium Phosphate
  • Although these chemicals will remove stains and kill organisms that have begun to develop on your rooftop, they are not considered to be “eco-friendly.” Our methods of cleaning your roof use gentle “eco-friendly” cleaners combined with what is known as a “softwash” using a low powered pressure washer.
  • This process removes all of the contaminants that negatively affect your roof in a safe and non-damaging manner.
  • Using the softwash method of cleaning your roof not only protects your roof’s delicate materials, but it also protects the areas around your home. Sloping roofs allow those same harsh chemicals that other companies use, to run off into your gutters and downspouts leaving puddling and water drainage that contains these chemicals to sink into your yard.
  • Using the softwash method of cleaning your roof not only protects your roof’s delicate materials, but it also protects the areas around your home. Sloping roofs allow those same harsh chemicals that other companies use, to run off into your gutters and downspouts leaving puddling and water drainage that contains these chemicals to sink into your yard.
  • This type of run-off creates hazardous situations for pets, children, and wildlife who may play in or even drink this chemically ladened wastewater. Additionally, the plants and lawn area that border your home could also be affected by these chemicals as they absorb the water that contains these chemical substances.
