What to expect when having your roof cleaned

Like many homeowners, you take pride in your home and will typically want to protect your investment. Having your roof professionally cleaned will drastically change the look of your entire home. Roof cleaning in Orlando, FL and the greater Orlando areas focus mainly on ridding homes of algae and black mold growth due to the warm, humid climate. These stains are very much alive and are eating away at the shingles, slowly causing the material to break down.

The benefits of roof cleaning

Routinely having your roof cleaned is beneficial in many ways. Not only will it save you major repair costs, but it improves the curb appeal which increases the value in your home. A clean roof also helps to lower electricity costs by up to 40% in the summer months. These growths will be killed and safely removed by using environmentally safe chemicals. Having this growth removed regularly will cut repair costs in half and will extend the lifespan of your roof.

The process used in cleaning your roof

Soft washing is a process that has shown to be highly effective and less harmful, causing less stress and damage to roofs than high-pressure power washing. Thin layers of material can be blown off the roof during a high-pressure wash, leaving the surface more vulnerable to dirt, giving bacteria new places to grow and hide within the surface. High-pressure washing will also cause rips and tears that may lead to future leaks in your roof and can also void your home manufacturer warranty.

What to expect with the process

By using a gentler approach, the materials are kept intact while the solution works to eliminate the root system, terminating the organisms living on the surface. By applying a special blend of the biodegradable solution, your roof is restored in a safe way. You will see immediate long-lasting results, however, it is possible to see a few spots of mild discoloration after drying. If this is the case, it's most likely caused by the remnants of the dead algae and/or some of the leftover solution. After a good rain, this discoloration will disappear and your roof will look as good as new.
