Does Cleaning Your Roof Really Help Make It Last Longer?

Did you know that you can hire a professional to come out and clean your roof? It’s actually very common in homes who don’t have obvious storm damage, but rather bacteria, mold, or moss build up that is taking over their roof. First lets discuss what roof cleaning entails, how it works, and why you need to hire a professional.

What is roof cleaning?

The most common reason homeowners clean their roofs is because of mold or bacteria build up that typically occur on the shaded parts of your roof. Even though this type of bacteria or mold on a roof may not deteriorate the shingles, but it could shorten the lifespan of your roof. Have you not heard of this type of roof cleaning? We’re not surprised. This is a relatively new concept and has only been around for the past 20 years or so.

How often should i clean my roof?

Like most things, too much of something isn’t always a good thing. That also comes with roof cleaning. It may make your roof looking like new, but it can also start breaking down the granules on your shingles which will ultimately cause you to replace your roof.

Make sure you use a professional

There are many roof cleaning companies that don’t consider the longevity of your roof when going to clean it. If you choose to get your roof cleaned then make sure you use a professional company that uses the proper cleaner. The last thing you want to have done to your roof is to have it power washed because it wears down the granules of the shingles on your roof. That being said, do your research before cleaning your roof.
