Overview & Benefits of Roof Cleaning

Unlike many “roof cleaning” services, The Roof Cleaner uses a low-pressure chemical cleaning method that is much safer on your shingles and helps to remove dirt, grime, and bacteria that is causing your roof have those black streaks. Our goal is to increase the life of your roof and improve the overall look of your shingles. 

Here are the five main reasons cleaning your roof can help save you time, money and keep you off of that ladder.


1. Roof Longevity

Cleaning your roof helps to extend the overall life of your shingles by removing the potentially harmful bacteria that can eat away at the limestone of your asphalt shingles. By using the soft wash system, your shingles can have a longer lifecycle saving you thousands of dollars in roof replacement and energy costs. 

2. Health

The bacteria that attaches to your shingles can cause mold and allergens to form affecting the health of you and your family. A clean roof provides a healthy home and a healthy state of mind. 

3. Home Value

Having a clean roof and protecting it from bacteria and damage caused by mold and unattended shingles, homeowners are able to safeguard themselves against expensive repairs. This helps to protect your home investments as well as increase resale value should you put your home on the market. 

4. Energy Costs

As we covered in the previous blog the algae that form on asphalt shingles turn into dark type stains to protect the bacteria from the sun. Those dark stains soak up the sun and increase the heat of your roof, transferring that heat into your home. That can lead to a large increase in cooling and energy costs during the hot Michigan summers. 

5. Roof Aesthetics

As homeowners, we always want to be proud of where we live. A clean roof goes a long way in making your house a home and one of the nicest looking places on the block. Take pride in your home on the inside and out.
