Roof tops often require professional cleaning with the use of a pressure washer and depending on what may be on the roof, one needs the right cleaning agents and detergents. Though many think their roof is invisible or they don’t truly need cleaning more than every 10 years or more; this isn’t always the case. Depending on the surrounding environment you may require a roof cleaning more often than most realize. However there are many benefits to having your roof cleaned and not just for appearances. Big Moose Pressure Cleaning will cover the many benefits of having your roof, soft wash pressure cleaned.
Extend the Life Expectancy of Your Roof
Your roof is exposed to many elements which can breed molds, algae, moss or lichen. They not only leave your roof looking dirty with black streak marks or black patchy areas, but they will erode and eventually destroy your roof. There is also all the bird poop. Most don’t realize that bird poop and pee at the same time, leaving behind a perfect mixture that erodes and destroys roof tile. Due to the fact that roof tile is very porous they can erode very quickly if not cleaned. Roofing tile should have a lifespan of 25 years. However, in most cases roofs that have not been taken care of usually end up requiring replacement after 15 years. One of the most obvious benefits of having your roof professionally cleaned every few years is that it will help extend your roof’s life to meet if not pass that 25 year mark.
How Much Value Does a Clean Roof Add to a House?
For those who may want to sell their home, you will hear how important curb side appeal is. Your roof can add the icing on the cake so to speak, and yes a dirty roof with moss and lichen or even just plain dirt can drive prospective buyers away. In order to help sell your home you will want a well groomed and clean front yard, clean exterior and immaculate roof. Unfortunately everyone does judge a book by its cover in our current day. For those who want to sell their home and to receive its proper value, having your roof deep cleaned greatly helps.
How to Reduce Heat from Rooftop; Clean it!
When algae and moss or lichen grows on roof tops, the effect is to see dark or black colors. The darker your roof is, the more heat it absorbs. This leads to higher energy costs because now your air conditioning unit must work harder to cool the inside of your home. You will be surprised at how much you can save by simply washing your roof.
Additionally, alongside saving money on your energy usage, you can avoid needed repairs or the replacement of your roof far earlier than necessary. In turn, you can save more. Once you compare the cost of replacing your roof to the cost of even a yearly roof washing by a professional, you will find that alone will help save you more money.
