Top 5 Reasons To Get A Professional Roof Cleaning
The exterior of your home is instrumental in forming the first impression people have about your home. This is also called curb appeal. Immaculate siding, driveways, and roofs all contribute to the curb appeal of your home. Maintenance not only improves the appearance of these surfaces but also protects and preserves them.
Your roof in The Woodlands area is particularly important to maintain regularly because it takes direct sunlight and is exposed to moisture throughout the year. This causes your roof to weather, and the shingles can begin breaking down. Regular cleaning prolongs the life of the roof and helps to prevent leaks and cracks in the shingles. Following are five essential reasons for hiring a professional to regularly clean your roof:
It's Safer And Saves Time
The number one reason many people hire a professional roof cleaner is that it saves time. It's time-consuming enough for an experienced professional to clean your roof with industrial-grade equipment and chemicals. It takes much longer for an untrained homeowner to undertake this task with substandard equipment and cleaners.
It's dangerous enough just being on the roof because of the fall risk. There is also the risk of injury by mishandling the pressure cleaning machine itself. Professional cleaners will know exactly how to avoid injury to you or your property and keep it looking pristine.
Proper Roof Cleaning Requires Training and Specialized Knowledge
Shingled roofs should never be cleaned with a high-pressure water spray. High-pressure power washing can loosen, damage, destroy, and remove shingles. Shingled roofs are especially delicate and require soft washing. Soft washing is a combination of a low-pressure spray along with gentle but effective detergents and rinses. We know just the right pressure to use with the right chemicals to effectively and safely clean your roof.
Prevent Cracked Roof Tiles
Regular roof cleaning over the years can prevent roof damage caused by water retention that can lead to the growth of algae, mold, mildew, lichen, and other parasitic contaminants. Not only are they on top of and between shingles, they penetrate the asphalt of the shingle and weaken it. Regular cleaning removes the growth and slows down its return.
A dirty roof has a very negative impact on the curb appeal of your home. This is especially important if you are selling it. A poorly maintained roof that is discolored can also dramatically reduce the price you can get for your home. The better your home's appearance, the higher the selling price. Keeping your roof and all exterior surfaces on your home clean make it look newer and preserve and protect them from the elements. Regular cleaning is particularly important with the roof of your home.
Boost Energy Efficiency
If your roof is covered with algae and debris, your energy bill might be higher during summer months. A dirty roof doesn't deflect heat efficiently, in fact, it absorbs heat. For the roof to effectively disperse heat, you need to have a pro like City Cleanz regularly help you to keep it clean.
