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.

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.
