The Importance of Roof Cleaning

As Fall begins and the end of the year closes in on us it is important to get our cleaning before Winter finished. During Fall and Winter, however I tend to get lazy. I just want to stay inside enjoy my hot cocoa and my imitation fireplace. (Don’t judge, it’s a heater but safer than an actual fire.) When the temperature drops below 40 degrees, we can’t do our pressure washing services due to freezing temperatures. Now is the time to book our services if you want them completed before winter. I know I drone on and on about pressure washing. What can I say? It’s a passion. What I really want to talk about today is Roof Washing.

Many don’t understand the importance of Roof Washing. When we don’t wash our Roof it could cost us in damages. The mold, algae, and grime block the sunlight from hitting our shingles. When it doesn’t allow this to occur the shingles don’t reflect and therefore don’t protect your home the way they are meant too. When they don’t work properly moisture and water from many sources pools and seeps into the nooks and crannies. The water then acts on your roof as if you didn’t even have shingles in the first place.

This sets the scene for all kinds of damage to your roof as then it can seep down into your home and in worst case scenarios the roof can fall on your head. The mold and algae is hungry and will collect and eat away at your home. It is never satisfied that is why getting it clean of the harmful molds and algaes are so important. Even Insurance companies have started putting their foot down in some areas. They are saying that if you don’t have your roof and house cleaned regularly they won’t insure you. I am not trying to scare you more as I am warning you. So many believe that their roofing needs replaced when their roof isn’t doing it’s sworn duties and spend so much out of pocket when really it just needed cleaned. Just some food for thought but here at Prowash Missouri we guarantee our Roof Washing services that you won’t need another for 3 years. Other products on the market don’t work as well and can only guarantee a year or two and cost much more.
