Roof Washing To Gently Clean Your Lynchburg Roof
Having a roof over your head is one of life's many blessings. Roof washing for Lynchburg residents can enjoy that blessing a little extra.
Roofs need just as much care and cleaning as the rest of your house. Generally, we recommend your roof gets washed at least once a year.
Roofs Can Get Dirty...Really Dirty
You may be thinking, "No one can really see the roof up close anyway so what's the point of cleaning it?"
Well, while the dirt on your roof isn't really dirt, you can be sure that it is dirty.
So if it's not dirt, then what is it? A lot of the stuff on your roof is algae, grime, and moss. Sometimes even mold finds its way up on your roof.
The roof may look clean or that it's just going through what feels like "normal wear and tear", but if it's not been cleaned in the past year (or at all), then make no mistake - chances are that it's not clean.
All the "dirt" can lead to expensive problems if it's not taken care of.
Doesn't The Rain Help Keep The Roof Clean?
When we think of water, we think of cleanliness. Roofs and water don't really work like that. Rain tends to bring out the worst in roofs.
The buildup of moisture on roofs can cause mildew, mold, and moss to grow. These substances can cause great damage to your roof, maybe even causing water damage inside your home. Roof washing helps eliminate threats from growing on your roof and causing the expensive problems we talked about before.
It's important to have your roof serviced and cleaned to maintain its integrity and more importantly, keep a healthy roof over your family's heads.
Pressure Washing Roofs
While H2O Home Improvements, LLC does provide pressure washing in Lynchburg, it's not a very common business practice to pressure wash roofs. If your roof is made of asphalt, then sure. Typically soft washing is recommended for most roof washing services.
Soft washing your roof ensures proper care of the shingles, which will minimize damage and allow for proper and thorough cleaning. If your roof is older, then no pressure washing for you. Stick to soft washing.
