Roof Cleaning in Bergenfield NJ
A roof should never be pressure washed. Pressure washing dislodges large amounts of roofing granules. Power washing the shingle shortens the life of the roof. High pressure water does not fully sterilize the roofing shingle. It does not kill the mold, algae, and mildew. These are the organisms that are staining the roof. If you leave some residue behind the stain will return quickly. Cleaning the roof with a pressure washer is like treating a home for roaches using a broom. You must gain a near 100% kill ratio in order for the roof to stay clean for a considerable amount of time. If you leave some of the mold residue behind it will grow back rather quickly. Using a detergent that contains a hint of bleach will keep the siding clean 4 to 6 times longer than traditional pressure washing. This is what we call soft washing. Using the proper detergents to achieve the desired cleaning objective.
Soft-Power Washing in Bergenfield NJ
Never let anyone clean your siding using high pressure water. High-pressure washing does nothing to sterilize the siding. Most of what causes stains on siding is organic like mold and mildew. If you do not fully sterilize the siding it will grow back rather quickly. We use a detergent that has a hint of bleach. This kills the mold as opposed to blowing mold spores around the property. This is what we call soft washing and it lasts 4 to 6 times longer than traditional pressure washing. We clean vinyl, stucco, aluminum, painted surfaces, cement, vinyl fencing, wood decking, composite wood decking, and gutters using our soft wash method.
Roof Moss Removal Bergenfield NJ
Moss and lichen’s develop a root system into the shingle, just like a plant. If you yank the moss off prematurely you will most likely take the roofing granules with it. We clean roofs with Moss by treating the surface with a mild bleach solution. This will kill the moss at the root. The plant will die and decompose, become dry and brittle and wash away little by little with each rain. This is not a fast process. It can take up to 90 days for the full cleaning to take effect. When the roof finally comes clean it will stay clean for the six times longer than compared to simply using high-pressure water. The roof is very delicate. There should be no high pressure, aggressive scrubbing, or any other method that goes against the roof manufacturer’s recommendation.
