Should You Get Your Roof Cleaned?
Updated: Aug 30, 2018
Does your roof have black streaks all over it? Or is the whole thing a slightly darker color than it should be? If this is the case then you may want to get your roof cleaned. It could potentially save you thousands of dollars in roof replacement costs.
Why you should keep your roof clean
The average cost of replacing a roof can soar over $5,000. This is bad because about 1/3 of people who replace their roofs do so because of the way it looks. Those black streaks you see on many roofs is actually a bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma. It does not cause any damage itself but it creates waste and creates a fertile place for moss and liken to grow. Moss and liken grow roots into the shingles which can prematurely damage the roof and cause leaks.
Keeping your roof clean increases the curb appeal of your home and the overall value. It will also save you from having to replace it prematurely due to fungus and bacteria growth.
How can you get your roof cleaned?
One thing that must be stressed is to never ever use a power washer to clean a roof! Using a power washer to clean a roof causes lots of damage and may even void the warranty of the roof. Here at Eco Clean we offer safe and effective roof cleaning services so you don't have to worry about getting on the roof and cleaning it yourself. Our cleaning method is the only proper and recommended way of cleaning a roof by the NRCA (national roofing contractors association).
