The Importance of Roof Cleaning for Extending the Life of Your Shingles
Does your home’s roof look disgusting? Are there black streaks on it, especially on the North side of it? It’s probably because you have algae growth on it called gloeocapsa magma.
The first thing people often think when they see black spots and streaks on their roof is that there is something wrong with its condition. This is untrue. However, if left on the roof for a long time, it can lead to the deterioration of the roof. Just like anything, algae left on a roof holds moisture. This can lead to mold that will eat away at the integrity of the roof.
The only way to prevent the deterioration of the roof because of gloeocapsa magma is by removing it with a roof cleaner along with a low-pressure washer. This process is also known as “soft wash”. By this method all the algae is removed, so it doesn’t ruin the roof.
If the algae is detached from your shingles in a regular basis, it will increase the life of the roof to 25+ years. Individuals who don’t clean their roof will end up having to replace it every 12 to 15 years. Yes, this means you could end up buying a new roof twice as often as you need to when you don’t have it cleaned. Since roof cleaning is relatively inexpensive, there is no reason anyone should ignore this very important home or business maintenance. Keep the value of your property and avoid expensive reparations by having the right professionals with an aggressive maintenance plan to protect your roof.
What to Know Before Roof Cleaning
Do not attempt doing it yourself. A roof is dangerous, especially when it’s wet. When you add in water and cleaning products, you are putting yourself in a very dangerous situation. It’s not worth the risk of injury and death. Professionals have the skills and knowledge to clean roofs safely.
A reputable roof cleaning company will protect your landscaping from the water that will fall from your roof. Since there is solution added to the water to treat the algae and ensure all of it is removed, the residue can harm plants. Professional cleaners will take the time to protect your landscaping.
You will see a difference in the way your roof looks right after having it cleaned. This is one of the greatest things about getting a professional roof cleaning. You see your return on investment immediately, giving you the peace of mind you need to know that the damaging algae aren’t left behind.
For those of you who have never cleaned your roof and it’s been over 5 years, you may need two applications to completely clean it. The buildup will likely be too thick to come off with one cleaning. However, if you continue with regular cleanings afterward, you’ll see that it only takes one application.
