What You Must Know About Roof Pressure Washing!
Roofs must be cleaned periodically for optimum maintenance. You may invest in periodic preventive maintenance and proactive repairs but that doesn’t do away with the need of washing and cleaning the roof. Even if your roof seems healthy and strong without any potential problems, you should still have a schedule for pressure washing roofs.
Roof pressure washing is the best way to ensure that a roof is spotlessly cleaned. There are some other methods and they all have varying levels of impact. But none are as effective as pressure washing. Let us first consider the many benefits of pressure washing roofs.
· The first objective is to clean your roof thoroughly. To do that you will have to get rid of all the dust and dirt, grime and leaves, debris and stains. Normal dust is still cleanable using wiping and dusting methods. You may also use some water at low or no pressure to get rid of dirt and grime. But dust settled in the valleys or dents and stains of myriad kinds are very hard to get rid of. Some stains will be so rigid that cleaning solutions recommended by a roofer will also fail. The only solution to these problems is pressure washing roofs.
· A roof is often plagued with algae, mold, mildew, moss and different kinds of weeds. You need to get rid of these. You cannot use any method that will put you at risk and you cannot be too gentle because you will fail to cleanse the roof of all the algae, mold, moss and weeds. Pressure washing roofs is the best solution for these as well.
As necessary as pressure washing may seem, it is not without its share of problems or risks. Pressure washing will always pose a danger to the roofing material. If you have asphalt shingles then they can be damaged in the process. Even if you have a rubber roof or some other material, pressure washing can damage the seams or the sealants and water may seep into the deck or substrate layers. You may also damage shingles or break them if the pressure is unchecked.
The remedy to these issues is professional pressure washing. You should not try it on your own. Professionals catering to pressure washing of roofs will know the exact pressure to be exerted, the volume of water and the duration for which the exercise must be carried out for optimum cleanliness.
