Roof Cleaning Methods
Roofs are most likely to form algae and moss or mold. Especially the part that does not face the sun as it often would keep the moist or water leading to the formation of algae and the likes. Roof stains caused by algae and moss that forms molds are the main causes of damage in shingles, as these shingles are mainly composed of an organic material. Such conditions would likely hit the life expectancy of your roof.
Roof Cleaning is highly recommended as it does not only keep the aesthetic value of your house or property, rather saves you from possible long term cost or costs from roof repairs or replacements. Roof Cleaning preserves that healthy roof condition that equates to lasting service or roof’s lifespan.
There are quite a few services offered for Roof Cleaning, and the said methods are as follows:
o Eco-friendly: As the word describes it, this is a method in Roof Cleaning that uses guaranteed eco-friendly products or solutions that are proven non toxic like that of chlorine bleach solutions often used by most companies. Applied and rinsed using low pressure machines.
o Chlorine-bleach: Is an approach or method that uses concentrated chemicals like that of chlorine bleach mix and others such as TSP or trisodium phosphate. This approach is done by spraying the said solution directly to the roof, and reapplying a few more layers as needed. This approach usually is done by most roofing professionals as this type of Roof Cleaning is less expensive as compared to other methods, given the chemicals used are less expensive than the others apart from the fact that they need not get in the roof to inspect it after application so goes with the fact that there is no need for rinsing.
o High pressure: As how the term describes it, this said method or approach uses high pressure washers to remove roof stains. This usually is not a recommended approach in Roof Cleaning, given the high pressure that the machine brings, such that could lead or surely will lead to damaging the shingles of your roof. Should the roof specialist insists in doing the said approach, have him place his hand or hands in the pressure (if he cannot keep his hands straight, imagine the damage that can cause to your roofing), then you decide. Other than that, such an approach leaves the roots of such organisms in the roof, thus the said concern will occur for sure.
