Do you have an abundance of black streaks forming on your roof? Something most homeowners aren’t aware of is not only are the black streaks an eyesore to your property, it actually deteriorates your asphalt shingles over the years, resulting in needing a roof replacement sooner rather than later. When it comes to roof cleaning, you need a professional that has experience in roof cleaning services. While pressure washing may seem like a similar task, roof cleaning is a form of soft washing that combines biodegradable cleaning solutions to gently kill all the organic matter that is growing and staining your roof. We follow the exact soft washing guidelines set forth by the American Roof Cleaning Association to stay compliant with your warranty and deliver a high-quality service.
When it comes to keeping up with your home’s maintenance plans, roof cleaning should be at the top of the list. Not only does your roof represent a lot of money and investment in your home; but also it plays a vital role in protecting your family from severe weather conditions on any given day. Help protect yourself by having First Response Pressure Washing regularly check for any natural occurring degradation that may occur on your roof which could end up costing you thousands.
When roof cleaning is done right, there are some significant benefits that come along with it. Mother nature has a way of making your roof her own, and as such it is prone to many things. Build up from leaves or moss can be disastrous for the condition of your home’s most visible side. Be sure you are on top offf any potential threats by checking out the exterior at least twice per year. However, when you have regular maintenance and roof cleaning done by an experienced professional company like First Response Pressure Washing, you can take comfort in knowing you are getting the most out of your roof.
There are several roof cleaning methods that can be used on asphalt shingle roofing systems. But only one method is safe, efficient, and recommended by roof manufacturers…soft washing! In fact, ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association), which is a group of the largest asphalt shingle manufacturers in America, only recommends soft washing as the primary way to clean your roof.
In fact, if you are using a pressure washer to clean your roof, you could be causing roof damage. Pressure washing will not only void your roof warranty (if applicable), but it also strips off the protective layer of coating on top on the asphalt shingles, causing them to deteriorate. Because of this action, roof leakages happen quicker than expected requiring more frequent replacements, costing you money.
