Slate Roof Cleaning for Mold, Moss, Algae, and Black Ugly Stains!
Thompson Roof Cleaning and Power Washing has been treating Central and Northern Jersey for all of their exterior cleaning needs. Slate roofs need special attention. It wouldn’t be wise to jump up on a slate roof with a pressure washer. We never walk on slate roof tops. Slate roof shingles can break off and slip right out from the feet. But we can say that slate is the most gratifying to clean. A transformation happens when we store the natural beauty of slate shingles.
Why Not “Power Wash” Slate Roofs?
The answer should be somewhat obvious. Could you imagine stepping on a slate roof and having a shingle give way? This would certainly cause you to tumble down the roof. Safety is the #1 reason for staying off of slate roofs.
The problem of a stained slate roof is organic like moss, mold, algae, and lichens. Power washing the roof would create a perception of clean, but it will not fully sterilize the shingle. Many spores for the mold and algae will be left behind and the stain will regenerate rather quickly. Our detergents have disinfecting features. By achieving a near 100% kill ratio the roof will stay clean far longer since there are no spores left to regenerate.
