Your roof is exposed to varying weather conditions that lead to collection of dirt and debris. There’s a common and widespread misconception that rainwater washes off all the dirt and grime that’s settled on the roof. While that may get rid of the visible dirt and debris, it still leaves your roof to be a habitat for micro-organisms such as bacteria, algae, moss, fungus/lichen and many more! In fact, another misconception is the black streaks on the shingles indicate wear and tear.
It’s no surprise, roof cleaning is probably the last thing homeowners think about. Some even believe a quick wash using a garden hose or a high pressure wash can help your roof looking clean, and this is nothing but just bad news for your roof! High pressure washing can dislodge the roofing material granules, making your roof and home more susceptible to damage. Hiring the right professionals can help prevent such damages to your roof and save on a costly roof replacement!
