Roof Cleaning Process
We never use a pressure washer to clean a roof! Companies like Roof Shampoo™ use a surface cleaner to clean roofing shingle. This unassuming device resembles a floor buffer and is hooked up to a pressure washer. It is cleaning the shingles by blasting water at unacceptable pressures. If anyone offers to clean your roof with high pressured water we ask you to consider the risks.
If you’ve look into a rain gutter you would most likely see roof granules that were easily dislodged from wind and rain. Imagine what a pressure washer would do even at low pressures. Any thing with more pressure than a standard spigot is too high. If it’s hooked up to a gas powered motor you can rest assured the pressure is too high!
Pressure washing a roof not only can cause damage but it does not solve the problem. The stains on the roof are organic, alive and contagious. It’s like an infection on the roof. It would sound wonderful to use plant friendly products but the reality is they just don’t work.
What’s in the soap?
The detergent used to sterilize mold, mildew, moss and lichen needs to have a ph at a level that most plants are not comfortable with. Plants and landscape are protected with covering, diverting and diluting. Sodium hypochlorite (bleach) fully eradicates the mold, moss and mildew which is how we are able to provide a 3 Year Spot-Free Warranty with every roof treatment. Anyone who offers to clean your roof with a plant friendly product would undoubtedly give you no more than a 2 years warranty.
Local municipalities purchase the largest quantities of sodium hypochlorite. People enjoy clean tap water since municipalities add small amounts keeping viruses and pathogens at bay.
Pool servicemen and frequently refer to sodium hypochlorite as “pool shock”. A weaker version is used for laundry and is commonly considered “bleach”. None the less, it is an effective cleaning product and safe when used properly.
