Thompson Roof Cleaning and Power Washing LLC
Monroe Roof Cleaning NJ
Hello and thank you for finding our page. Roof cleaning is not a “power washing” job. Blasting high pressure at a roofing shingle can dislodge large amounts of roofing granules and shorten the life of the roof. Furthermore, pressure washing does not kill the growth at the root level. Without full sterilization the roof should not be expected to remain stain free for any extended period of time.
Hard truths about the treatment standout and consideration should be noted. A detergent with the correct ph level can kill a vegetation at the root level. Roof shingle manufactures recommend only one product to remove organic growth from roof shingle. Sodium hypochlorite (bleach) based detergents work best and hold top spot for biodegradability.
Stains on a roof contain organic features. Detergents with sterilizing features can kill the organisms on the roof without using pressure or aggressively stiff scrubbing. The solution is applied to the roof and allowed to soak in. Detergents are calibrated with a proper ph level to dissolve dark algae staining while moss and other rooted vegetation will die immediately with treatment.
Dead moss is left to decompose and fall away with time. The time it takes to fall away depends on the amount of time the dead vegetation is allowed to dry out and separate from the roof. Moss is never on the sunny side of a roof therefore requires patience. Moss can take up to a year to fall away depending though in most cases 90 days or less will suffice.
Any roof can benefit from a sanitizing detergent soft wash including slate, cedar, barrel tile, cement as well as regular asphalt shingle. All landscape within perimeter is protected by tarp as well as other diluting systems.
