Why You Should Leave Roof Cleaning to the Professionals

Pressure Washing Orlando

Roof Cleaning seems like a simple task of hosing down your roof. That is until you’re teetering on a ladder with a bucket of soapy suds in one hand and a garden hose in the other. Or maybe you’ve upgraded to a pressure washer to speed up the cleaning process.

We’re here asking you to step away from the project completely. While there are many home improvements you can perform in a safe and effective manner, this is not one of them. 

Read on to learn why you should leave roof cleaning to a professional exterior cleaning company. 

You Might Damage Your Roof

Roof cleaning technicians know where they can step to avoid damaging the roof. One misstep can send your foot through the shingles or tiles, causing significant damage. Also, it’s easy to cause roof damage when using a pressure washer. 

That’s why you’ll notice that roof cleaning experts use a soft washing technique instead of pressure. The risk of damaging the surface is simply not worth taking for a roof cleaning company.

What can go wrong? You might:

  • Wash away the asphalt granules
  • Warp metal roofing
  • Crack tiles
  • Damage the waterproofing membrane 

Experts properly evaluate the state of the roof before they begin. They understand how to get optimal results without inadvertently causing damage. 

You May Void the Warranty

Did you read the fine print in your 20-year warranty, or are you like most people and just signed? The danger here is that DIY roof-cleaning causes so much damage it affects warranties. Many manufacturers now have a built-in clause that states the warranty is only effective if you hire professional roof cleaners. 

By doing it yourself, you might save a small amount of money upfront. If, however, you need to claim against the warranty, you’ll find yourself on the hook for expensive repairs and replacements. 

You Could Hurt Yourself

Thousands of professionals hurt themselves severely by falling off roofs every year. As a DIY enthusiast, you do not have the same training or safety equipment. The risk of falling, therefore, is much higher for you. 

You May Not Get the Results You Desire

Say, for example, that you take our warning seriously and decide to hose down your roof rather than using a pressure cleaner. We applaud that step because it’s one move closer to the right solution. However, it’s still a long way to go to a cleaner roof. 

The problem with DIY solutions is that they are seldom as effective as expert ones. Do you know how to effectively clean your roof off of bird droppings or kill algae? Do you have access to the commercial supplies you need to do the job effectively?

Professionals work with these issues daily and know how to remove almost any roofing stain.
