HomeBlogWhat to Know About Roof Washing

Everyone knows the roof is one of the most important, and most expensive, elements of a home or building. It shelters people from inclement weather, sunlight, pests, and more. However, many people don’t know that it’s important to wash their roof from time to time. Roof washing has many benefits, but if it’s done incorrectly, it can do quite a bit of damage.

What to Know About Roof Washing

Here are a few things to know about roof washing:

  • Not Every Method Is Safe – Some exterior cleaning methods will do more harm to your roof than good. For example, some companies might pressure wash roofs, but the results can be disastrous. Pressure washing is far too harsh for the delicate shingles, tiles, or other roofing materials on a structure, so we use soft washing instead, which does not use highly pressurized water.
  • Water Isn’t Enough – Soft washing is the best method for roof washing because it involves using biodegradable cleaning solutions in addition to water. These solutions are designed specifically to target not just dirt and grime but also contaminants like algae, mold, mildew, and bacteria that eat away at roofing materials over time. The use of these solutions ensures longer-lasting results.
  • It Can Help You Keep Your Warranty – Improper roof washing could void your warranty, but when you turn to our team at Safari Softwash for roof washing, we can help you keep your warranty because we only use the manufacturer’s suggested methods.
