When you think of cleaning your home, you most likely don’t think about cleaning your roof, right? Well, you should be. You would be surprised to know how much dirt and bacteria are stuck in the shingles on your roof and how it can influence the life expectancy and appearance of your roofing system. People often question whether or not they need to pay for a skilled contractor to come in and do the job, or if they can do it themselves. Even though you can do it yourself, you will get a much more detailed cleaning and ensure that the whole thing is taken care of if you hire a qualified roof cleaning company that does it for a living. If you would like our crew to come out to your Chula Vista, CA property, give Sully Jones Roofing a call today at (619) 444-0150.
Protect your roof.
One of the largest concerns when it comes to having a filthy or bacteria-ridden roof is roof algae. Roof algae are typically found in humid places and appear as black streaks on the roof. It is very unattractive and can give your house a much dirtier look, and it can also cause damage to your roof. This is because roof algae is alive and it consumes your shingles, which can significantly reduce their structural integrity and lifespan. You might not be able to find the roof algae, but it can still do just as much damage to your roof.
Even if there is no roof algae now, you should probably have your roof cleaned anyway because it not only stops growth, but it also gets rid of any additional moss or dirt that could be caught in your shingles.
Types of roof cleaning
There are two ways that experts clean your roof, sorted as “hard wash” and “soft wash.” A hard wash is basically a pressure wash. This means that pressurized water is used to wash off moss, algae, and dirt. A soft wash involves the use of chemicals and does a detailed job of washing off all of the bacteria that produce algae, along with the dirt, moss, and algae itself. Both have their pros and cons, and it all varies on the state of your roof and how much attention it needs to get back to a strong state.
