Selecting to do business with the right professionals will ensure that a roof is cleaned appropriately and not damaged in the process.Being able to navigate the many choices available requires knowing how to differentiate between qualified professionals, from those who are willing to do a quick job at a lower price. After all, just because roof cleaning services can be offered at low prices doesn’t mean the services will be worthwhile and can end up costing much more in the long run. Experienced care and roof cleaning in Fall City should be completed seasonally in order to prolong the lifespan of your roof, and to prevent damaging moss and algae from accruing.
The following are recommended tips from the professionals to consider when it comes to proper roof care and maintenance to help keep the roof over your head looking its best year round and through all weather conditions.
Cleaning Too Aggressively, or Not Aggressively Enough
There are several methods which a roof cleaning company can employ in order to thoroughly clean any roof. Some of which include hand cleaning, power washing, air pressure, sweeping, brushing, and specific treatment solutions. If any one method is used too aggressively it can result in damage such as the removal of protective materials or the extensive damage of shingles.
In the same way if cleaning is not aggressive enough, a roof could incur more damage over time as the initial problem continues to escalate. The best and most balanced solution is to use both treatment and mechanical methods for handling small and large problems with just the right amount of force.
Improperly Power Washing
Power washing should generally be avoided to clean a roof when possible, however some roofing systems can only be completely cleaned using the force of water. In these cases the right equipment needs to be used, and the tools should be specifically designed to utilize a lower amount of pressure with greater water volume. Using non-customized equipment with a pressure of 3000+ Psi for this purpose will likely damage a roof causing the need for repair or full replacement.
Always consult with professionals when considering power washing a roof to ensure no damage will occur.
Applying Inappropriate and Toxic Treatments
Roof cleaning should be completed in a way that is non-toxic and safe for both humans and the environment, as well as the property itself. Using improper treatment methods and solutions can cause roofs to become stained causing more damage then good.
Professionals will be able to determine what specific treatment solutions would be the most appropriate as well as the safest for removing everything from fungus and moss, to algae and pollutants.
Using the Same Cleaning Method on Every Type of Roof
Many roofs become destroyed due to the use of improper cleaning methods applied on specific roofing types. Each roofing system require different maintenance, damage prevention, and cleanings based on the materials used and cleaning should only be completed by professionals who can ensure the longevity of your roofing system is upheld.
