Your roofing system protects the structural integrity of your home. It also protects your family and belongings from the elements. As a homeowner, one of your top priorities should be maintaining your roof through regular cleaning. In today’s post, Arry’s Roofing Services, Inc, your premier roofing company, discusses the things you need to know about roof cleaning:
You should never attempt to clean your roof without proper training and equipment. Doing so may leave your roof with more problems than it had starting out—and it could also void your roofing warranty. Leave the job to the professionals, who are adequately trained, equipped, and insured to get the job done without a hitch.
Methods of Cleaning
There are two effective methods of cleaning your roof. Pressure washing involves spraying highly pressurized water on your roof to remove any mold, algae, and dirt. Soft washing, on the other hand, utilizes chemicals to remove harmful debris from your roof.
What to Expect
Algae is not only an eyesore on your roof—it can also cause damage your shingles and take years off your roof’s service life. Furthermore, it can reduce your household’s energy efficiency, causing your utility costs to increase. As professional roofing contractors, we can pinpoint any underlying issues with your roof and provide the appropriate solutions.
People think that working with licensed roofers will cost them more. This is false; hiring licensed professionals is a preventive measure that will save you more money in the long run. Professionals can spot problems and suggest repairs to keep your roof in pristine condition, preventing more costly repairs or even premature replacement down the road.
