Q and A about Roof Cleaning in South Florida

Why is roof cleaning important?

Roof cleaning also removes dirt, grime, algae, toxic mold and stains. Having a sparkling, bright roof will increase the ‘curb appeal’ of your South Florida home. Having a dirty one will detract from it’s value. The mold and algae from a dirty roof will start breaking down the materials your roof is made of – especially clay and wood – and will contribute to you having to buy a new roof sooner than you should. Washing a roof also expands roof life!

How often should you have your roof cleaned?

We recommend cleaning your roof every one to two years here in South Florida. Why? Because of the amount of grime that can collect on a roof and because of the algae and moss created by

All the humidity and moisture in our environment, especially during the summer months.

Can my roof get damaged during the process?

With traditional pressure washing techniques and equipment, yes, your roof can get damaged. Pressure cleaning machines shoot water out at up to 4,000 PSI ( pounds per square inch ) – which can break off shingles, crack tiles and otherwise wear down your roof material.

Can’t I hire one to just ‘bleach’ my roof?

People also try raw bleaching their roofs to clean them> Bad idea.  Bleach will clean the roof however using raw bleach will damage the roof and landscaping. The bleach will sit and dry onto the roof and  crystallize under paper and rust the nails quickly.
