Roof cleaning is a delicate, but necessary service. As rugged as asphalt shingles are, it’s important that finesse is used to only clear away the mold, algae and grime on your shingles, and not the actual asphalt that makes them so tough. A similar approach is needed for any roof type. Asphalt shingle roof cleaning, metal roof cleaning, wood shake roof cleaning, all take the attention to detail and finesse that our exterior cleaning experts bring to every job.
How Does My Roof Cleaning Job Work?
You’ll notice as soon as we arrive that our equipment is top of the line. We use custom built skids that provide just the right tool for the job. Our exterior cleaning expert technicians can quickly switch between using cleaning agents or water, and using high pressure or low pressure. Florian is able to assess your roof project, and find the right tools and means to properly clean your roof.
Asphalt Roof Cleaning
We clean your asphalt roof shingles using a “no pressure” approach. The shingle’s granules are its protection. The worst thing to do is to use pressure to clean them because it will blow the granules off of the shingle, severely shortening the life of the shingle. Our “soft washing” method uses a combination of algaecide solutions and soaps to kill the algae at its roots.
Our custom solutions and roof cleaning method is based on the Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association’s recommendation, so you can rest assured that your roof will be left in a better state. After applying our roof cleaning solutions the roof will return to the original color. The algae will disappear and wash away with subsequent rain falls.
*Note: If your roof has lichen or moss buildup it will turn white after our cleaning process. This means the biomass is dead. The moss and
lichen cannot be forcibly removed right away, but instead will become brittle and will naturally weather off in the next 3-6 months.
Lichen and moss has a root system that grabs hold of your shingles, so forcibly removing the growth would cause permanent damage. It took many years for the growth to take hold on your roof, so it is imperative that we are patient with it to come off naturally and safely.
Metal Roof Cleaning
Metal roofing does not require as delicate of an approach as washing your asphalt shingles, but Florian still ensures that we are paying attention to the little details. Our crew will switch between soft washing and pressure washing as needed to bring your metal roof back to life.
How Much Will My Roof Cleaning Cost?
Roof Cleaning Prices Start At $350. Rate is based on square footage and soil/contaminant levels. Roof with increased levels of soils and contaminants may incur an increased rate. Roofs with an increased pitch increase the difficulty in cleaning and may incur additional charges. Additional charges will also be discussed prior to your exterior cleaning service.
