An experienced roof cleaning contractor can provide experienced, reliable, safe, and insured low pressure roof cleaning services for residential and commercial customers. Mold, mildew, moss, algae, and fungus have a major negative impact on a home's appearance, structural integrity, exterior maintenance costs, and home energy usage.
Roofs become stained and discolored through the growth of moss, algae, mold, and mildew on the roof surface. These elements thrive on moisture and the limestone filler found in the composition of many asphalt roofs. Limestone acts as a nutrient, and humid and warm weather allows these organisms to grow and spread rapidly. Left untreated mold, mildew, moss, algae, and fungus will deteriorate the quality of a roof and make it look old, streaked, discolored, stained, and unattractive.
Roof cleaning and pressure washing by an experienced professional will immediately improve a home's appearance by removing unsightly stains and discolorations. In addition pressure washing will reduce energy costs. A stained, moss, and fungus covered roof absorbs more heat than necessary and increases air conditioning costs during the summer months. Pressure washing will increase roof life by removing organisms which cause surface deterioration and minimize the ability to reflect the sun and displace heat.
By thoroughly and carefully cleaning the surface, the proactive homeowner can extend the life of an asphalt roof by years. There is no need to prematurely "re-roof" when it can look new for a fraction of the cost. Professional roof cleaning and low pressure washing minimizes unnecessary repairs saving the informed homeowner thousands of dollars.
A roof washing expert can safely pressure clean your home's roof. It is important for the contractor to have experience. The men performing the cleaning should have the training and equipment to safely remove moss, mold, and mildew without causing damage to the roof or surrounding plants and landscape.
Skilled roof cleaning companies provide the expertise and experience to remove unsightly stains and improve a home's appearance. Properly trained technicians will use safe, effective, and environmentally friendly cleaning solutions based on recommendations of ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association) and major manufacturers of roofing shingles.
In addition a knowledgeable contractor advises customers on ways to discourage the future growth of mold and mildew. They will recommend cleaning gutters and downspouts regularly, pruning overhanging trees etc. to minimize moisture which fosters the growth of mold, moss, mildew, and fungus.
The bottom line: choose an experienced professional to extend the life of your property.
