Roof Cleaning – How & How Often?

Marlton NJ Roof Cleaning

If you have noticed black streaks or black patches on your roof you have likely taken to the Internet to find out exactly what is happening up there. You’ve read all about gloeocapsa magma, the species of bacteria that has invaded your roof. You probably already understand that, due to the climate here in Marlton, NJ dealing with the appearance of these black streaks on your roof is a going to be a regular part of your home maintenance plan. But how often should you have roof cleaning performed and what are some qualities that you should look for when selecting a roof cleaning company here in Marlton, NJ?

Roof Cleaning Is Ongoing Care

The algae that feed on the material in your roof shingles grows rapidly. So it is imperative that you schedule roof cleaning service as soon as you see the first signs of darkening on your roof. Just how often you need service will vary depending on a couple of factors. The foremost factor is environmental conditions. Typically, coastal communities will need service more often than areas that are further inland. Also, if your home is heavily shaded then growth can potentially happen much faster, leading to more frequently roof cleaning treatments. Another important factor that could lead to an increased frequency of service is the level of expertise of the roof cleaning contractor that you select to wash your roof.

Not All Roof Cleaning Companies Are Equal

When it comes to effectively cleaning your roof, experience matters. Equipment can be purchased but experience is earned, and it is not a possession of all. If a roof cleaning contractor is inexperienced they may not know the correct procedures (such as the correct amount of time to leave cleaning solutions on) to effectively remove ALL traces of the algae, mold or moss. This means that you could be looking for a new roof cleaning service within MONTHS. When done correctly, roof cleaning should only have to be performed every few years…not months! It is also worth noting that if a roof cleaning contractor tells you they are going to be using high pressure on your roof DO NOT HIRE THEM. Blasting your roof shingles with high pressure will cause extensive and expensive damage to your roof. So how do you identify an experienced roof cleaning company? One of the best indicators is that an experienced company will have several happy reviews (not just one or two) on verified review sites such as Google or Facebook.

It was easy to get a quote and schedule the work. They came out and definitely did a great job of cleaning the house. It is the cleanest it ever was. My only issue is that two of the exhaust fan covers were blown off (?) and no one said anything about it before they left. I did not get the covers back so I assume they were taken away. I'm attaching a picture of one of them. If it was at least mentioned, then I would have given a 5 star review. -Changed to 5 Stars- This is a class A company to deal with. The owner came out and inspected the damage and issued a reimbursement. He also offered to do the installation which was more than I expected. They really do care that their customers are 100% satisfied!

This is the second time I’ve used Diamond Roof Cleaning to wash my stuccoed home. I’d heard horror stories from others who’d had their homes power washed and questioned the owner, Mike, who gave me addresses of homes similar to mine so I might see his work. I liked what I saw and took a chance with DRC. They did a fantastic job. The workers were friendly, respectful of my property by removing cushions from the patio chairs to keep from damaging/wetting them and answered any questions I had. Now my house looks brand new and I couldn’t be happier.

We recently completed our fourth job with Michael and The Diamond Roof Cleaning crew. This time was cleaning the house and detached garage roofs included. Another beautiful job which started punctually and did not take long to complete. The house is 45 years old with mostly original western red cedar, which comes up looking new when they’re complete. I had started, 4 years ago, to replace the western red cedar on the south and SW corner. The contractor rode by after that cleaning, 3 years ago, and thought I had someone else replace the cedar because it looked new. I’d recommend them to anyone (and have) wishing to clean their house, walls or patios. You won’t be disappointed, I’m surely not.

There are only positive remarks I can make about Diamond Roof. They did a whole house soft clean, washed the windows, and made our stone walkways and patio look like they did when put in 20 years ago. Really! The two gentlemen doing the work were wonderful, too. We had two windows with lots of algae on them and I noticed that they came back to them a few times to wash them over and over again. Would definitely hire them again!

We had the house, roof and gutters cleaned and could not be happier with the results. This is the 3rd time we have used this company and have had a great experience every time. They were on time, professional and make the house look 10x better than when we do it ourselves.
