Roof Cleaning Carlstadt NJ
Here are some tips to consider if you’re thinking of getting your roof cleaned. Never pressure wash roof. Never let anyone talk you into using a device on your roof that is hooked up to a pressure washer machine. Most information pertaining to roof cleaning on the website are from companies who clean roofs. It is best to consult your manufacturer’s website for cleaning instructions. All roof shingle manufacturers will suggest to use a detergent that contains bleach. They will all tell you to not pressure washed the roof. Pressure washing dislodges a large amount of roofing granules. High-pressure water does nothing to kill the bacteria that are creating the black stains on the roofing shingle. A calibrated detergent that contains bleach will kill the bacteria completely and will allow the roof to stay clean for a considerable amount of time.
Power Washing Carlstadt NJ
Never let anyone clean your siding using high water pressure. Water at high pressures can damage sidings such as vinyl, stucco, aluminum, and even painted surfaces. Most of what causes stains on siding is organic like mold and mildew. In order for the siding to stay clean for a considerable amount of time one must use a detergent that contains a disinfectant. Bleach is the safest product to use in the detergent. Bleach is actually called sodium hypochlorite. This product is used to clean clothes, treat swimming pools, and the local municipalities use it to treat our drinking water. By killing the mold first with a disinfectant detergent the surfaces will stay clean for to six times longer compared to traditional pressure washing. Even cement is cleaned using disinfecting detergent. Most of what stains cement is mold and mildew. If you do not kill the organic matter at the root of the stain will return rather quickly.
Roof Moss Removal Carlstadt NJ
Moss can develop a root system like a plant. The root system attaches to the granules of the roof. If you yank the moss off you will most likely take the granules with it. We treat roof moss by spraying it with a disinfecting detergent. This salt-based cleaner will kill the moss and try it out. It will decompose and become brittle then wash away with the rain. This is a slow process but it is the least aggressive way to clean the roofing shingle. There will be zero granular loss on the roofing shingle. The root system of the Moss will eventually detach on its own. The same process goes for lichens.
