When it comes to roof cleaning, we follow all manufacturer guidelines and we DO NOT use a pressure cleaner to clean roofs. This is a chemical application and mildew prevention treatment as recommended by all roofing manufactures to properly remove roof mold, and get the longest life out of your cleaning.

When the roof detergent comes in contact with mold, bacteria, bird poop, etc. It has a chemical reaction and turns white and foams. By the time the area dries it is either 100% mold free and clean, or about 90% depending on the thickness of mold, and if that’s the case we apply a 2nd coat to remove the remaining 10% to those areas on the roof.

By following the manufactures guidelines, the manufactures say you will get between 5-6 years out of your cleaning because the roof detergent suffocates and kills 100% of the roof mold, but this is Florida and it is a mold breeding ground, that’s not going to happen. We do see we can get between 3-4 years out of our cleanings depending on your surroundings. If you have large oak trees, pine trees, etc. that overhang or sit to close to the roof line, they will cast more of a shadow allowing moisture to dwell longer, as well as shed droppings onto the roof, and that will help boost mold growth. We see we have to retreat these areas between 2 – 2/12 years.

By following the manufacturers guidelines we are able to provide all our roof cleaning with a written 3 year mold free guarantee. If any mold should reappear on your roof before our 3-year warranty expires we will return and retreat the infected area(s).

Why do the manufactures say to not use a pressure cleaner to clean my roof?

When you use a power washer to clean a roof you are relying on brute force and water to remove roof mold, which can cause stress cracks, chip tiles, and strip the glazing off the tiles, as well as remove granules from shingle roofs. Their studies showed that a pressure washer will only remove the surface layer of mold, and pushes the mold spores deeper into the pores of the roof. Which will result in the mold returning much within 1-2 years, and your forced to clean your roof again 1 year later, sometimes sooner depending on your surroundings.
