Roof Pressure Wash- Temporary fix or long term roof cleaning solution?
Your roof acts as a primary source of protection from harsh weather conditions. It has to be strong to resist rain, snow, hail and ultraviolet rays coming from the sun. Due to the important role it plays, it deserves special attention. Asphalt roofs have a coating of mineral granules that can easily be disturbed by simple walking on the roof. Now imagine what a power wash will do to these little protective granules. Power wash blasts away this protective coating thus leaving the roof vulnerable to harsh weather conditions.
High pressure cleaning only washes away the mold from the surface leaving the roots behind. Apparently the roof looks cleaner after undergoing a power wash. The mold spores left behind sit dormant on the roof waiting for a little rain water and humid cloudy days to become active and start growing again. Pressure washing a roof without applying any fungicide to remove spores is just like chopping the weeds off the surface. Professionals will use specialized cleaners that actually kill all chlorophyll sustained life. This gives you a long term solution for your roof’s problem.
