Roof Cleaning Solutions for Florida Homeowners

As a homeowner, it can be extremely frustrating to have a discolored, dirty rooftop.  Here are a few facts about roof cleaning – and how it can impact your roof’s appearance and lifespan.

Common Roof Concerns

Roofing can appear discolored and dirty for a wide variety of reasons. Natural buildup of organic materials (algae, leaves, etc.), humidity, and UV rays from the sun all play a role in making your roof look a bit worse for wear. Shingle and flat roofs are especially susceptible to damage.

Protection from Natural Buildup

Although moss and other organic matter are not pressing concerns for roof damage, they may trap moisture atop your roof, causing a slippery, unsafe surface.  This moisture may also support the growth of mold.

An Additional Layer of Protection

After a thorough inspection and cleaning, some roof types may benefit from an application of roof coating. Roof coating can increase the lifespan expectancy and functionality of your roofing system.

Easy, Professional Cleaning

Calling in a professional contractor to clean your roof is an easy and affordable way to ensure your home remains properly protected. Many roof types can be easily damaged by careless foot traffic, and the average homeowner does have access to proper equipment for roof cleaning. Many products on the market are misapplied and may harm the surface of your roof.

Saving Your Finances

An ounce of prevention, they say, is worth a pound of cure.  Roof cleaning and coating does more than just remove unsightly stains from your roofing system.  It is also a great way to keep up to date on the overall condition and needs of your home.  With prompt attention and care, many types of roof leaks can be avoided.
