What Is The Correct Way To Clean A Roof?

As homeowners, we all want to maintain the appearance and functionality of our homes. However, it’s quite common to overlook one crucial element of our homes, our roofs. Your roof protects your home from environmental elements such as snow, rain, and extreme heat or cold. Unfortunately, it’s easy to overlook the state of your roof until it’s too late. Black streaks or gloeocapsa magma are early signs of bacterial growth, which if left untreated can cause thousands of dollars in damage. Cleaning your roof is essential, but what is the correct way to clean a roof? In this blog, we will explain the perfect way to have your roof cleaned.

Traditional Pressure Washing versus Soft Washing

When it comes to cleaning a roof, traditional pressure washing techniques that use high pressure are simply not the way to go. This technique can cause thousands of dollars of damage to roofing materials. At best, high-pressure power washing can damage the granules on the shingles. At worse, pressure washing your roof can loosen or remove shingles! It all leads to premature aging and potential leaks. Soft washing, on the other hand, is a low-pressure technique that uses environmentally-friendly cleaning agents to safely and effectively remove the black streaks without risking any damage to the roof or shingles.

The Benefits of Professional Soft Wash Roof Cleaning

Our soft wash roof cleaning service provides many benefits for homeowners beyond just enhancing your home’s curb appeal. Regular roof cleaning can prolong the life of your roof by removing damaging, algae, moss and other debris. It can also help improve the energy efficiency of your home by removing dirt and grime that can trap heat and cause your air conditioning system to work harder. Additionally, a professionally cleaned roof can help prevent potential health hazards caused by mold, bacteria, and other allergens.

Why Soft Washing Is Best Left to the Professionals

While it may be tempting to DIY your roof cleaning using a pressure washer or even trying your hand at soft washing, the truth is that soft wash roof cleaning is best left to the professionals.

Absolutely blown away by the exceptional service provided by Diamond roof cleaning! From the moment I contacted them, their professionalism and attention to detail were evident. They transformed my home to stunning again in just one day. Not only did they meticulously clean every inch of my roof, pathways, and house, but they also went above and beyond by clearing out my gutters and giving them a thorough wash. The results are nothing short of astonishing – my house looks like it's been freshly built! The team at Diamond were prompt, courteous, and incredibly efficient. They treated my property with the utmost care and respect, ensuring every surface was spotless without causing any damage. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of their services. Thank you for restoring the beauty of my home and exceeding all expectations!"

It was tremendous leaving for work and coming home to an amazingly clean home. These photos were taken the same day. My landscaper recommended Mike and he and his team delivered. A quick response and excellent service with quality results. I just had new landscaping in place and he tarped my plants and all debris was removed. I highly recommend!

I have used Diamond roof cleaning for house, patio and gutter cleaning. They are a super reliable business that is very professional and thorough. I wish more businesses had their work ethic, and will definitely be using them again.

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.
