Power Cleaning Your Roof

House Exterior Being Pressure Washed

Roofs should be cleaned regularly to remove rotten leaves, twigs, seeds and other debris that causes algae, mold and other contaminants to grow. By regularly power washing the roof, damage can be prevented. Your roof serves as the first line of defense for your home. Cleaning your roof protects your property to ensure that it lasts for a long time. Maintaining your roof’s health is best achieved through a good, professional pressure washing.

Clean Moss and Algae

Use a pressure washer to blast off the moss, lichen and algae that can spread across your roof. Rainwater isn’t the only thing that gets on roofs. Lichen and moss can grow on your shingles, depending on where you live and the amount of moisture and shade present. It is necessary to clean roofs with moss and lichen growth. If you ignore the growth, your roof can suffer further damage.

DIY Pressure Washing

The pressure you use when spraying your shingles shouldn’t be too high, as too much pressure can strip them of their protective granules or even damage or remove the shingles themselves.

It will be easier and safer to use much less pressure to spray away the growth if you first apply detergents. Organize your work into sections. Clean the roof by sprinkling detergent on one area and then spraying it with water. Move to the next area and do the same.

You should always stand on a dry area of the roof because wet shingles can be very slippery. When starting the pressure washer, aim it down the roof while keeping the tip of the wand at least a foot away from the surface. It is not recommended to point a pressure washer up the roof, as the water can push through the shingles. Water sprayed under your shingles can also tear the shingles off and cause water to be forced under them into your home.

DIY pressure washing can easily damage your roof. Let the experts at JB Power Clean in Charlotte handle all your roof cleaning needs. They will handle the job with skill, integrity and precision. Contact them today for an estimate for pressure washing your roof.

JB was the most reasonably priced of the 5 other companies I received estimates from. He was very friendly yet professional. He was prompt with his estimate and all further communications with me. He used his own water which is a plus! My house looks great! Thank you JB!
