For many years contractors have been having long
debates concerning the correct way to go about
roof cleaning. The safe and proper method to
clean a domestic roof has also been debated by
many construction trade associations. Even though
roof cleaning may be vital to preserve the
appearance of your home and in many cases simply
cleaning a roof has actual increase the value of
many properties, contractors need to use extreme
caution in what approach they take to clean down
any particular roof.

Some roofing trade associations caution all
homeowners from allowing their roof to be cleaned
with high-pressure water washer and condemn their
use for removing algae and black streaks from
roofs on the grounds that they may cause more
damage than they will do good. In most cases
utilizing a high pressure water washer to clean a
roof is not only dangerous to the tiles and
slates it most instances such extreme high
pressure can also compromise the integrity of the
roof structure. And only a no pressure roof
cleaning or at best a low pressure cleaning
method should be applied to remove environmental
stains and debris such as mold, moss and alga
from roof tiles and slates.

Fortunately some manufactures have listened to
those who have safety concerns regarding high
pressure washing devices and have been hard at
work designing what is now called soft wash for
contractors and homeowner. Eco-roof wash uses a
special blend of eco-friendly algae and moss
neutralizers, mild surfactants and bio degradable
detergents that are capable of cleaning the most
horrendously stained roofs and can gently restore
practically any roof to an almost like new
appearance, all without the slightest compromise
to the integrity of the roof structure or damage
to the environment. When you opt to have your
roof cleaned by a soft roof wash contractor, you
want to observe the following tips so the job can
run smoothly
5
Never allow any contractor to use a high pressure
washer on your roof. Even some soft roof wash
companies sometimes opt to use high pressure
washers for small periods of time on certain
areas of roofs. The fact is it's either a soft
wash or it's a high pressure wash there as are no
in-betweens.
6
Just like hiring any contractor to do work around
your home you should always ask for at least
three references of previously satisfied
customers. Contractors always enjoy boasting
about their happy customs so if a contractor is
unable to show you citations from previous
clients, the likely hood are they don't have
any. Lastly, never hire a contractor who does not
have adequate insurance and particularly roof
cleaning insurance. Most pressure washing
services and roof cleaning companies will usually
have adequate insurance cover for general
cleaning.
