Roof Cleaning Princeton New Jersey
Thank you for finding our Princeton NJ roof cleaning and power washing video. Any roof can be cleaned without using pressure washer. Aggressive cleaning processes, such as pressure washing or stiff scrubbing, can release large amounts of roofing granules and shorten the life of the roof.
What’s Eating Your Roof?
Analogies serve best when describing the roof cleaning process. The stains on a roof are alive and contagious. Detergents with sterilizing feature will serve best when attempting to remove the stains.
Let’s compare to cleaning a kitchen; If one were to sterilize a kitchen a disinfecting spray should first be applied. We simply cannot scrub our way into a sterile cooking area. Bleach, vinegar, even ammonia based products can serve well when sterilizing cooking areas.
This situation adheres to the same mindset. Stains on a roof are alive and contagious. Scrubbing or pressure washing will create a level of visual cleanliness but the underlying root of the stain remains in the shingle. Moss and algae will grow back rather quickly without a disinfecting pre-treatment.
What’s In The Soap
The ingredient that keeps your tap water sterile and virus-free is similar to what is used on the roof. Sodium hypochlorite, commonly known as bleach or liquid pool shock, is the safest approach and roof shingle manufactures approve its use. SH will break down rather rapidly and its final state is brine or sodium chloride (table salt). It breaks down rather quickly leaving behind no residual toxicity.
Princeton New Jersey Power Washing
Soft-wash is the word of the day. Older methods of exterior cleaning relied on blasting high pressure water rather that approach each specific stain. Todays technology for detergents has exceeded the market.
Mold, moss and algae require bleach-based detergents while rust, line and water stains require a buffered acid. After the detergent is applied the stain will dissolved and simply rinsed away. “Soft-wash” claims this definition.
