Far too many so-called roof cleaning companies in our area use pressure washers to clean roofs. A quick Google search will quickly inform you that using a pressure washer to clean your roof is a terrible idea. Even if the damage is not readily apparent, power washers blast away the granules on your shingles, which significantly shortens their lifespan.
Roof cleaning is one of the most dangerous home jobs, which is why it’s a good idea to leave this task to the pros. To do the job right, it’s vital that the worker understands roof types and their vulnerabilities.
Moss removal is one of the most important aspects of roof cleaning in our region. Once moss accumulates on a roof, it can quickly cause irreparable damage that can lead to expensive repairs or even an entire roof replacement.
To remove the moss while protecting your shingles, our crews use brush agitation and then clean away the leftover debris. This process is often called brush agitation roof cleaning and it’s the most effective way to remove moss without damaging the roof.
Once the roof is free from debris, we add a zinc treatment that kills the remaining moss, preventing it from growing back too quickly. Zinc treatments are safe and will not damage your home or cause adverse health side effects in wild animals or pets.
