It is advised to pressure wash your roof every one to two years. One of the biggest myths about roof power washing is that it’s done just to make your roof look better. Pressure washing also aids in removing any harmful materials from your roof. As a result, your roof will last longer and require fewer repairs. Two damaging things you can remove from a roof by pressure washing are:
Algae and Mildew Growth
A pressure washing company can remove any algae and mildew buildup on your roof. Your roofing materials may develop mildew or algae growth, both of which can damage the roof materials as they grow. Algae and mildew can deteriorate wood shakes and asphalt shingles, making them break or crack. All of the algae, mildew, and any stains that might have been overlooked, can be eliminated by pressure washing.
Bird droppings are corrosive and acidic. They can also harm the roof tar and roofing paper that hold roofing materials in place and shield your roof from leaks, as well as various exterior roofing materials. Bird droppings can do more harm to your roof if you allow them to remain there longer. If you see bird droppings accumulating on your roof, you should call a pressure washing company to clean it.
