Roof Cleaning in Bogota
If you’re thinking of cleaning your roof please do not let anyone pressure wash the roofing shingle. Black staining is a bacteria. High pressure water does not achieve complete sterilization to the roofing area. If mold and algae spores are left behind, even on a microscopic level, the stain will return rather quickly. Go to your roof shingle manufacturer’s website to see the solution that is suggested. When looked at through a microscope the black staining is actually green. The green is part of a UV repellent shell that is developed to protect itself against harsh weather conditions. Even in long periods of drought the bacteria will survive. We use a soft wash method of applying the proper disinfectant detergent to sterilize the roof completely. It is delivered to the roofing shingle with pressure less than an average garden hose. There is zero granular loss with our process. We apply the treatment and leave it. The first rain is the first rinse.
Power Washing in Bogota NJ
High pressure washing is a thing of the past. The technology of using the proper sterilizing detergents has advanced in the last decade. High-pressure water does not sterilize the siding. If the problem is mold or mildew high pressure water can create a perception of clean. But you cannot see all of the mold spores left behind onto microscopic level. This is what will cause the stain to return rather quickly. We soft wash sidings by applying a detergent with a hint of bleach and other rinsing agents. By achieving a near 100% kill ratio on all of the mold will the siding stay clean for a considerable amount of time. All surfaces can be cleaned with this method including vinyl, stucco, aluminum, dryvit, and even painted surfaces.
Roof Moss Removal in Bogota NJ
Roof moss is most likely the second phase of an infected roof. The bacteria that causes the black staining usually comes first. Once the black staining takes hold the roof will start to retain more moisture. This is the perfect breeding ground for moss. Moss can develop a root system just like a plant. You don’t want to yank the moss off prematurely. You will surely take the granules off along with the moss. Roof moss can be cleaned by applying a detergent that will kill the moss at the root level. The Moss will die, decompose, dry out and wash away with little by little with you rain. It can be a slow process but it is the least aggressive way to clean the roofing shingle. Roofs are expensive and delicate. By no means should anyone be applying high-pressure or scraping the shingle with a stiff bristled brush. This will dislodge large amounts of roofing granules and shorten the life of the roof.
