The high humidity and hot climate of Florida can work together to create some ugly stains on the roof of your home or business. Those unsightly stains can detract from a building’s curb appeal and give the building a shabby look that can lower the value of the property.
Make Your Business More Attractive to the Public
If you operate a business, a dirty, stained roof can give your commercial building an unkempt look that’s unappealing to the public. It’s not very good for a customer’s first impression of your business. When you hire a professional roof cleaner, you not only make your commercial building look great, you improve your business prospects with a well-maintained property that inspires confidence in your customers. You want your roof to look as clean as possible!
It’s Way Too Dangerous
Homeowners and business owners alike should not attempt to clean their roofs. It can be a hazardous job that’s best left to trained professionals with the proper safety equipment. Slipping and falling from even a moderate height can cause severe injuries or even worse to a person, so the best decision is not to attempt that job in the first place. Hire a professional that has the knowledge and skill to do a great job and you can stay safe on the ground.
Using pressurized water to clean a roof can also cause serious accidents to a do-it-yourself person. When using a pressure washer, especially if you don’t have a lot of experience with that kind of equipment, you can easily damage your shingles or other parts of your roof or home or commercial building if you don’t know what you are doing.
Professional Cleaning Extends the Life of Your Roof
When the roof of a residence or commercial building is regularly cleaned and maintained it will last much longer than a roof overgrown with algae and covered with leaves, broken twigs, and other debris. Keeping a roof clean also keeps animals and birds from making nests in the debris and insects from infesting the roof tiles or shingles.
Cleaning away all organic material keeps the roof drier between rains and helps prevent eventual rotting of the roof substrate and underlying structure. A periodic professional roof cleaning also extends the life of the asphalt shingles of a residence if the building is located underneath overhanging trees.
You Can Save Money
A professional roof cleaning extends the life of your roof and saves you money in the long run, but it can also save you from having to replace the roof. If you want to sell your home or update your commercial building, have your roof professionally cleaned instead of paying for a replacement. Having a roof cleaned by a professional can save you thousands of dollars and make the roof look new again. A professional cleaning completely removes all the unsightly black algae or even patches of moss that can grow on the surface of a roof.
Higher Energy Bills
Roofs badly darkened with algae growth won’t reflect the strong Florida sunlight as well as a clean, dry roof, which can make the interior of a building hotter. A darker roof means the cooling system of the home or commercial building must work extra hard to keep the interior at a comfortable temperature and this strain can shorten the life of the HVAC system.
