Benefits of Roof Cleaning

Contents

You are aware that a home is the largest investment you have, and taking care of it is an important part of maintaining its value.

The exterior of your home is exposed for all to see, and it will reflect heavily on your image. Ensuring great curb appeal is high on everyone’s maintenance budget. The exterior cleaning of your home is one of the improvements that will give you the best return on your investment.

Dark stains on your roof can diminish the beauty of an otherwise gorgeous home and landscape. The dark stains can be caused by moss, lichens or algae. These small plants growing on your roof take root in the shingles and affect the appearance and functionality of your roof.

The good news is that your roof can be cleaned without causing damage. Roof cleaning Indianapolis is a fast, safe and affordable way to see results. If your roof is covered with algae stains, you can clean it and restore it to its original state.

In addition to diminishing the beauty of your home, algae can shorten your roof’s life span by causing shingles to lose their protective granules. When using a non-pressure, soft wash chemical application, the roof will be cleaned, and the shingles will not be damaged.

Unfortunately, there are power washing systems that damage and loosen the protective granules on the shingles. These high pressure methods are never recommended.

In addition to affecting the appearance of your roof, roof stains can cause your gas and electric bills to increase. Studies have shown that the darkening effect caused by roof stains trap excessive heat under the roof. In some cases, this can be by as much as 25 degrees. This unwanted heat shortens shingle life and increases air conditioning cost.

There are very few low-cost home improvement projects that can offer dramatic benefits so quickly. Roof cleaning is one of them. A non-pressure, safe chemical application will not damage or remove granules. When done professionally, the results will enhance the beauty and functionally of your largest investment, your home.
