Low pressure washing can prolong the life and beauty of your roof. You just need to have this service performed consistently to maximize the benefits. In this post, professional roofers from Affordable Roof Care discuss these benefits.
Protects Your Roof
Soft washing your roof will remove dark stains caused by microorganisms, such as moss, mildew and algae. Left unaddressed, these microorganisms can kickstart decay and aging in wood, affecting the looks of the house and the roof’s structural integrity. Your roof may look good initially, but it has to be cleaned periodically to avoid further damage.
A low pressure wash won’t damage your roof’s surface, but it will rid your roof of microorganisms. A professional roof installation contractor can combine these cleaning agents to kill microorganisms at a cellular level.
Increases Market Value
Low pressure washing can even increase the value of your home. If you plan on selling it soon, it has to be clean. A low pressure wash ensures the surface of your roof is free from damage. This gives potential buyers confidence in the health of the roof.
A low pressure wash can be conducted up to 50 feet from the ground floor of your house. There will be no need for you to use ladders or extension poles that may wobble while they support your weight. This makes the job safer, easier and more efficient.
Your first instinct might be to do some low pressure washing by yourself. The truth is, it’s best to entrust the job to a professional roofing company like Affordable Roof Care. We are properly trained and equipped to deliver the best results, just as your home deserves.
