If you have ever been faced with replacing the roof on your home, you know it is no small matter. This can be a huge cost to you as a homeowner. That is why it is so important that you take care of your roof and do everything you can to keep it preserved. One of the things that homeowners can do is have it cleaned. This small bit of maintenance can save your roof and add years to its life. Big Moose Pressure Cleaning is here to talk about how you can safely clean your asphalt roof.
Roof Cleaning is Not a DIY Job
There are many things you can do around your home on your own to save some money. If you are someone who likes to take care of the maintenance needs of your home, it may come as a shock to you when we say that your roof is different. Here are some of the reasons you shouldn’t attempt to clean your roof on your own.
– Balancing: When you are cleaning your room, you have to balance on a ladder while using a pressure washer. This can be dangerous for someone that isn’t trained to do so.
– Angles: When spraying your roof with a pressure washer from the ground, you can end up damaging your roof as this can loosen the nails and staples used to keep your shingles in place.
– Training: No matter how many how-to videos you watch, you can’t fully grasp how to safely clean your roof on your own. Reaching the dirt found deep in your home’s roof requires a certain skill set that comes with extensive training.
– Damage: If you don’t know how much pressure to use when cleaning your roof, you can cause significant damage to its surface. You can literally blow shingles off the roof if you aren’t using the right amount of pressure.
Cleaning a Roof with a Soft Wash System
If you have an older roof, it is recommended that it be washed using a soft wash method. When using this method, there are certain surfactants and detergents that are used to seep into the cracks and crevices of the roof to remove dirt and build up. It can easily remove grime, soot, dirt, mud and other residues that are often found on a roof.
