Why Roof Cleaning Should Be At The Top Of Your To-Do List
Your Raleigh home is your biggest and most important investment. So, it only makes sense that you should want to take the best care of it possible. That's not about the perfect window treatments or adding an outdoor living space, it is about basic maintenance, especially for your roof.
That being said, few people really think of roof cleaning as part of the required roof maintenance, but it is. If you are guilty of neglecting to schedule your roof washing in a timely manner, then this is some information that you can use.
Why it Matters
What we should say too, is what really matters, is that you get professional roof cleaning from an industry expert who uses safe washing methods to clean your roof. Here is why:
The black streaks that you see on your roof, that's not just dirt. That is a living organism that feeds off the limestone in your asphalt shingles. Every day that you ignore those marks is another day that algae and lichen are devouring and destroying your roof.
Power washing by a self-proclaimed “pro” or as a DIY project can do more harm than good. The high velocity water is not good for your roof, and that is a practice that no true professional should still be implementing. Power washing can tear away shingles or trap water underneath, leading to mold and rot.
Another reason you should not attempt this yourself is safety, above all else. Aside from that, it is about the fact that you will not get the results that you should be getting. Leave this to an expert, but only one using safe washing practices.
The best approach is a soft wash with cleaning soaps, and only those that meet environmental safety standards. This provides an even deeper and more effective clean than just high velocity water, and it's still safer.
