Roof Soft Washing
Roof Soft Washing – Cypress, Texas
Did you know that your roof can be washed and cleaned? Our customers in Cypress and Northwest Houston looking to rejuvenate the exterior of their home are amazed at the curb appeal improvement after a roof wash. It’s easy to understand why having a clean roof makes such a big difference: when you stand outside and look at a house, the roof can comprise up to 50% of your field of view.
Prolong the Life of Your Roof
Roof soft washing does more than just make your roof look better, it can actually add years to its life-span. As your roof ages, especially if parts of it are shaded for extended periods of the day, mold, algae, and mildew take up residence on the tiles and proliferate across the surface. Because the climate of Cypress, Katy, Tomball, and Northwest Houston are so humid and the roofs here are predominantly constructed using asphalt shingles, algae and mold buildup is almost inevitable. A particular strain of algae (Gloeocapsa magma) common here feed on the limestone filler used asphalt shingles and can cause substantial decay.
Wash Your Roof for Better Energy Efficiency
If having a clean and long-lasting roof weren’t enough to convince you of the merits of regular roof washing, there’s one more benefit you should know about: energy savings. Clean roofs reflect the suns ultra-violet rays; Stained roofs absorb more of those same rays. If your energy bills have been creeping up over the last few years and you’re noticing roof stains, your roof might be the culprit.
Treatment Options for your Roof
To soft clean your roof we use a biodegradable solution along with a foaming agent to increase the “dwell time” and allow the solution to do its job and kill and eradicate the algae, mold, mildew, and dirt. We then perform a low pressure wash as the final step, ensuring that your roof is safely cleaned.
