What Makes Roof Cleaning Important?
You probably have a good idea of what makes pressure washing for the exterior so important. Yet, roof cleaning is not the same as traditional pressure washing, even though some self-proclaimed pros treat it that way.
Your roofing should be cleaned using softwashing methods. This is a safer technique that uses cleaning agents instead of just highly pressurized water.
That's because, high pressure water can cause damage to your roofing or cause water pockets to form under the roofing material which causes mold and rot. So, what makes it so important to clean your roof?
Caring for Your Roof with Cleaning
Let's talk about those black streaks you see on roofing, maybe even on your own rooftop. Did you know those streaks are not stains but actually a type of algae and it thrives by feeding off the shingle granules?
- Obviously, over time, this compromises the integrity and destroys the roofing. You are literally shaving years off of the lifespan of your roof by letting these black streaks linger.
- The reason softwashing is so vital is it doesn't just clean the visual aesthetics of your rooftop. It destroys algae at the molecular level so it can't keep damaging your roof. Plus, this level of disinfection helps reduce the likelihood of the contaminants returning again, at least anytime soon.
- Getting regular softwashing service is much more cost-effective than repairs or replacement. Invest in this level of preventative maintenance to take better care of your roof.
The average asphalt shingle roof can last up to 20 years with regular care and maintenance. Make it a point to sign up for softwashing and make sure you get the longevity you deserve.
However, don't take chances with companies that don't use softwashing for delicate surfaces. For the best in Jupiter pressure washing services, get in touch with Gulfstream Property Services, right now.
