Benefits of a Soft Wash Roof Clean
Benefits of a Soft Wash Roof Clean
Have you ever caught a quick glance at your roof and noticed it’s not looking quite as clean as it once used to? Well, obviously that’s expected, what with roofs constantly being exposed to a wide array of extreme and harsh elements. But do you know what negative effects that may have on the functionality of your home?
Aside from lower street appeal, you may also notice higher energy costs, as your roof starts to lose its reflective properties, making your air conditioner work harder to cool your home. As algae builds up and eats away at your roof tiles, your roof may lose integrity and cause expensive and sometimes irreparable damage.
However, at 1300 Cleaning, our roof cleaning experts use a soft wash roof cleaning method to treat, contain and eradicate the causes of your unsightly roof. Having tried and tested our soft washing technique along with our environmentally-friendly cleaning chemicals, we will always recommend this above a damaging pressure wash.
Why Choose Soft Wash Over Pressure Cleaning?
Not every roof is equal. Whether you have Colourbond, tin, slate or tiled roofs, every surface has its own challenges and things you need to be aware of.
Our roof cleaning solution is very much dependant of the type of surface your roof is made of. Tin and Colourbond roofs are long lasting but can be a magnate for mould. The use of high pressure washers can strip your tin roof down to the bare metal giving mould and lichen the ideal breeding ground. It isn’t uncommon for tin roofs that have been treated with pressure washers to deteriorate very quickly.
Additionally, the use of pressure washers on tile and slate roofs can cause damage to, not just to the tile or slate, but the nails and cement used to secure it to the roof. Cracked tiles and slate can lead to water damage to the roof cavity of your house and ultimately very expensive repair work on internal ceilings.
Using our advanced soft washing method with an environmentally safe chemical mixture, will ensure your roof is cleaned quickly and efficiently, removing all mould and other build up, without causing your roof to leak or damage the material of your roof.
Soft Wash Roof Cleaning FAQs
My roof has black stains, what is that?
When dirt, leaves and moisture build up on your roof, there’s not doubt it will start to change colour and look pretty filthy. That black tinge is thanks to an airborne mould which, left unchecked will continue to build up and diminish the integrity of your roof, possibly resulting in a shortened lifespan.
