Advantages of Roof Cleaning Services

A roof cleaning service has many benefits. The first is that roofs don’t have to be maintained
regularly. Customers will come back for more if you offer a high quality service. It is important to
understand your local requirements and license requirements. A roof cleaning license in most
states is required. Additionally, additional state permits may be required for roof cleaning
businesses. Check the directory of local resources at the SBA for information on how to get
these licenses.

It is important to have your roof cleaned by professionals for a beautiful home. Over time, debris
builds up on your roof, creating a breeding ground for mold and insects. Not only that, but this
can also accelerate the deterioration of your roof, leading to extensive damage and premature
replacement. It is important that you hire a professional to clean your roof once a month. If you
live in a rainy location, make sure you call a roof cleaner to keep your home looking good.

Black streaks on your roof are likely due to algae. If left untreated the algae can spread on your
roof materials, causing expensive repairs or even complete failure. Mold, mildew, as well as
algae growth, can adversely affect the interior air quality of your home and lead to health
problems. If it is not treated promptly, it can pose a risk to your family.

Summer is the best time for your roof to be cleaned. However, moss can build up on your roof
and you may need to wait to clean it until the fall or winter. Moss tends go dormant in these
months and is more difficult to clean. A professional will have access more effective cleaning
solutions and can remove any stubborn stains from your roof.

After a roof cleaning, a stain blocking solution can be applied. One gallon covers 200 to 300 feet
of roof surfaces. A coat of paint on your roof prevents the growth of moss and adds an additional
layer of insulation that lowers your heating bills. This stain-blocking product is available at a
price of $20-30 per gallon. This stain-blocking solution can be used to maintain a stained roof for
several years.

Soft-washing can also be used for roof cleaning. This method uses a soft wash solution and low-
pressure water, similar to that of a garden hose, to remove algae, moss, and dirt from your roof.

This method of cleaning can be less expensive than roof blowing. It can cost between $0.30 and
$0.75 per square foot. It is important to remember that a soft wash won’t damage tiles, but it will
remove some moss.
Regular cleaning of your roof is essential to a building’s aesthetic appeal. A clean roof will
improve the curb appeal of your building. However, potential clients may distrust your business if
it is dirty. Although it might seem like an extravagance, it is vital for the health and longevity of
your building. A pressure-washing service will come to your roof every other week to save you

For warranty maintenance, it is important to have your roof cleaned on a regular basis. Without
regular cleaning, your roof warranty will lapse. You should also check whether your roof has
solar panels. Solar panels make it more difficult because cleaning them requires special
solutions. Prices for professional cleaning vary depending on the condition of the panels. Don’t
forget gutter cleaning!

Roof cleaning services charge by the square foot. The cost of cleaning your roof will vary
depending on the size of your roof. A number of applications is another important consideration.
Roofs with stubborn stains can require multiple applications to clean. Professionals don’t clean
roofs with water alone. They use a chemical or bleach to remove mold, algae, and fungus. To
get rid of microorganisms, you might want to use an environmentally friendly wash.
