Roof Cleaning Cliffside Park NJ
Have you ever wondered what those black streaks are on roofs? The black staining is a result of a bacteria. The spores of this bacteria landed long ago. It takes many years for the stain to come about. Once against to the point where you can see it will begin to grow exponentially. Pressure washing the shingle is not an option. Check your manufacturer’s website and follow the recommendation for cleaning procedures. The major roof shingle manufacturers will tell you to use a detergent that contains bleach. Bleach will not harm the roof and it will fully sterilize the bacteria causing the staining. Other companies will try to reinvent ways to clean the roof. We will not go against manufacturer’s recommendations. We will not pressure wash roofs. We will use a detergent that contains bleach. The landscape will not be harmed.
Power Washing Cliffside Park NJ
Back in the olden days people would clean siding with a high pressure washer. They would rely on the force of the water to clean the siding. Most of what causes stains on siding is mold and mildew. Water pressure does nothing to kill the mold and mildew. It is best to use a detergent that contains a small amount of bleach. This will fully sterilize the siding and allow it to stay cleaner for longer period of time. Achieving a 100% kill ratio on all of the mold will keep the siding clean the longest. The only stains this procedure will not remove are chemical reaction stains like rust or oxidation. This is what we call soft washing. Blasting high-pressure water does not kill the mold at the root. Even cement can be soft washed. We clean cement by applying a detergent that contains a small amount of bleach. This gets into the pores of the concrete and kills the mold at the root. Everything can be cleaned using soft wash including vinyl, aluminum, stucco, and even painted surfaces.
Roof Moss Removal NJ
Moss can develop a root system into the shingle, just like a plant. If you yank the moss off the roof shingle you will most likely take the granules with it. We clean roofs with Moss by treating the surface with a detergent that contains a trace amount of bleach. This will kill the moss at the root. When the detergent tries the chlorine will evaporate. The technical name for bleach is sodium hypochlorite. We use this common chemical to clean our laundry, sterilize our swimming pools, and is also used at the local municipality to treat our drinking water. It is a truly biodegradable product. Bleach will quickly break down into salt crystals. After treating the roof moss it will die, decompose, dry out, and wash away little by little with each rain. This is the least aggressive way to clean the roofing shingle. This process can be slow. It can take roughly 90 days before the roof is fully clean. Appreciate that we are not pressure washing or scrubbing the roof would stiff bristle brushes. It’s going to take some time.
