Roof cleaning – High pressure washing systems can damage asphalt roofing…
A decade or two ago, the standard practice for cleaning mold, algae and stains off the roofs of homes and business was to blast it of with a high-pressure power washer. However, this was often too much pressure and caused damage to the roofs, such as shingle removal and the like. In addition to that, many companies thought the use of harsh chemicals like bleach were the right answer. Today, the process is much safer for the environment and for the roof itself. According to the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association, high pressure washing systems can damage asphalt roofing and should not be used on asphalt roofing for the purpose of removing algae and other built-up grime. That’s where soft wash roof cleaning comes in.
Roof cleaning with environmentally friendly cleaners…
Your trusted exterior washing company should offer this service rather than the more abrasive pressure washing technique. It involves a chemical process applied to your roof using no pressure and no bleach. Here at Clearview, for example, we pride ourselves on using only the most environmentally friendly cleaners possible to get rid of black streaks, as well as mold and mildew stains, from the roof safely and effectively. Using a unique roof cleaning process, your home is protected through the use of a biodegradable roof detergent applied from a battery-powered sprayer at half the pressure of a garden hose. Not only does this process remove unsightly roof stains, the results last four times longer than traditional pressure roof cleaning methods.
The main reason to employ the use of soft wash roof cleaning is to keep the integrity of your roof intact. A secondary reason to use an eco-friendly process like this is to protect the surrounding environment from further damage. Thanks to the use of green cleaning solutions, the surrounding vegetation won’t be harmed, and with such a low pressure being applied, there is very little run-off and subsequent damage.
There are several benefits to using soft wash roof cleaning for your home or business:
- Increased property value
- Increased curb appeal
- Longer life span for your roof
- Safe on most siding materials
- Uses less water than traditional power washing, saving money and natural resources
- Gives a more thorough cleaning than traditional methods
