4 Simple Reasons That High Pressure Washing is Effective for Cleaning Your Roof

September 13, 2017

A house without a roof wouldn't be much of a home at all. So why do most property owners neglect to take care of their roof until there is a serious problem? The key to a durable home comes in the form of cleanliness and maintenance. One of the most effective ways to keep your roof clean is by utilising high pressure washing. You may not think about it, but your roof is under constant environmental attack and it is going to take a heavy duty solution. Today we are going to talk to you about the perks of high pressure washer cleaning for your residential roof.

1) Protects From Roof Rot

Your roof and the weather make for natural enemies and over time, without the proper precautions, the weather will win. Accumulation from moisture can build up on your roof which will eventually lead your roof to break out with infestations of algae, fungi, and bacteria. This harmful build up can eventually find its way into your actual home thus becoming a health hazard. High pressure washing tools can scrape this gunk right off of your home.

2) Curbside Appeal

Driving down the street you aren't going to really notice the homes with nice roofs. What you ARE going to pay attention to are the homes with roofs that are stained with dirty, discoloured streaks. While this is merely an aesthetic issue it can become a real problem if you decide to put your home on the market. Even if you don't want to sell your home, do you want to be the ugly home on the block?

3) Increases Roof Longevity

At some point in time it became commonly accepted that your roof didn't need any upkeep and that eventually you would just have to replace massive sections of it. We don't know why people started thinking this way, but it is wrong. Pressure washing your roof can lead to a massive improvement in the longevity of your shingles or tiles. Pressure washing rids your roof of harmful build up that would otherwise eat away at the structure. It is particularly important to get into the habit of pressure washing your roof in warmer climates where moisture has more time to do its damage.

4) Saves Money

Replacing a roof or undergoing massive repairs is always going to be more expensive than the routine upkeep that pressure washing entails. This is common knowledge. What ISN'T common knowledge is that pressure washing your roof can lead to a reduction in your homeowner’s insurance rates. Insurance companies like to know that their clients take proper care of their possessions.
