If you’re old enough you may remember a time when roofs did not need cleaning. It’s a fairly new service but the issues surrounding roof cleaning started back in the 70’s. Oil embargos correspondingly rattled everything within the oil markets including asphalt shingle roofs. Roof manufactures needed a different filler for the shingle that could withstand the elements affordably. Roof manufacturers started adding crushed limestone as a filler, That, together with moisture, provides a food source for moss and algae.
It takes about 6-8 average for moisture coupled with limestone to start producing signs of algae growth on these new shingles you may have starting experience stains in the 80’s. Roof growth is slow and is sometimes measured in decades. Other roofs with less sunlight and a lot of trees holding moisture can contribute to faster growth. Furthermore some roofs can use a treatment every 3 to 5 years depending.
The treatment is a simple yet very effective process in ridding roofs of moss and algae without using a pressure washer. Comparatively someone using a power washer or stiff brush, which is not recommended, can unwittingly remove the important roof granules protecting the shingle.
In light of modern sanitizing detergents, the non-pressure proves effective to remove algae, moss and/or lichen from any roof including asphalt shingle, cedar, slate, vinyl or any other type of roof. The detergents used work as a powerful weed killer. It’s designed to penetrate at the root and instantly kill the vegetation and of course ultimately leading to a stain free roof.
We have been in the roof cleaning business for over 20 years serving Middletown NJ for roof cleaning services and specialize in low pressure cleaning for all types of delicate surfaces. Cement sidewalks receive hot water high pressure cleaning but a gentle non-pressure soft wash for delicate roofs. Let us tell you a little about our unique soft wash service.
Non-Pressure Process Middletown New Jersey
Removing moss, lichen or algae is not a high pressure wash job. Algae, moss and lichen are living organisms. The best approach to tackling the stains is to treat it like an infection. When we solve the underlying infection the roof can stay clean for an extended period of time. Pressure washing cannot achieve the level of sterilization required to keep an infected roof clean for any meaningful period of time.
Roof stains are becoming a big problem for roofs on much of the east coast as well as the rainy northwest regions. Limestone embedded in the roof granules provides a nutrient source for these organism. Pressure washing the shingle is not good for many reasons. High pressure can damage the roof by removing large amounts of roofing granules. Once these granules are stripped away the roof has lost all of its structure integrity.
Manufacturer Approved Process
A simple process of applying a proper ph detergent to disinfect the living stain. Dark algae will dissolve instantly. Moss. lichen or other rooted/embedded vegetation can take several weeks to release after treatment. Our bleach-based detergent is endorsed and suggestion by major roof shingle manufactures.
