Why Regular Home Roof Cleaning is Essential

Have you noticed any black streaks developing on your roof? If so, it’s important to address the issue sooner rather than later. Many homeowners don’t realize those black streaks can affect much more than their home’s appearance.

That said, you need to hire roof cleaning experts for this task. Shingles and other types of roofing can’t withstand the force of certain cleaning methods. That’s why, as our name implies, our roof cleaning experts at Prima Soft Wash, serving homeowners throughout the Vancouver, BC area, clean roofing using eco-friendly detergents combined with a soft application of water.

The following are key ways hiring our roof cleaning team will help you maintain your home:

The Essential Benefits of Regular Professional Roof Cleaning

Guarding Against Damage
Again, hiring a roof cleaning team familiar with the soft wash method will guard against unwanted damage that may occur if you were to hire a team that didn’t use the appropriate method when cleaning your roof.

Additionally, scheduling regular roof cleaning service, in general, will help you maximize your roof’s lifespan. That’s because those black streaks you see on your roof indicate the presence of Gloeocapsa magma, better known to some as roof algae.

This organism isn’t merely unattractive when it develops in your roofing. It can also attract similar organisms that will begin to eat away at your shingles. The best way to prevent this damage is to schedule roof cleaning service consistently.

This is true even if you haven’t noticed any black streaks developing yet. You’re much better off preventing this type of problem before it ever has a chance to strike.

Saving Money
It’s important to remember that the expenses associated with regular roof cleaning service are typically far lower than the expenses associated with neglecting your roof. First of all, you can already assume that you’ll need to repair or replace your roofing much sooner than would have otherwise been necessary if roof algae has a chance to erode your shingles.

However, that’s not the only expense you need to consider. When your roofing wears down, your home is exposed to the elements. This can lead to a number of costly problems.

For instance, your home will no longer be properly insulated. That means you’ll have to rely on your heating and cooling equipment for often. The result? High bills. On top of that, running your equipment too often puts wear and tear on the system, putting it at greater risk of breakdowns that may require the attention of a repair team. Add that to your list of bills!

Water from rain and snow or ice melt will also be more likely to get into your home if your roofing isn’t perfectly intact. This naturally puts your home at risk of water damage. That water can also accumulate, creating moist environments where mold is likely to develop and thrive.

At the very least, constant exposure to mold will have an adverse effect on your comfort levels. It can also trigger genuinely severe reactions in people who are allergic to mold. Thus, you’ll need to pay for expensive mold remediation services if it develops.

Making Money
All the above points make it clear that scheduling regular roof cleaning service is much less expensive than ignoring your roof. It’s also worth noting that maintaining your roofing will help you earn more money if you ever choose to sell your home in the future.

Adam & his partner were most efficient in their cleaning of our home, and despite the initial rain, the house turned out beautifully! Thus I would highly recommend Prima Soft Wash...

Our Strata complex has used Prima Soft Wash for the last two years to sweep our roof and then wash all the building flashing and windows. We are very pleased with their service and the excellent work they did.

My home looked like it was scrubbed clean without the hassle of having to most things around, although Adam was so thoughtful in helping move items around my house.

Connie Ens

They came, did an amazing job and all I have to do is enjoy my clean house and yard. They even pulled out all of the "junk" from the back yard that was on the concrete or blocking the siding, cleaned it AND put it back.

Winnie Cheung

Had my home exterior siding and roof cleaned. They did an excellent job! Having not had the exterior cleaned in over 5 years, the house now looks incredible. Will definitely have them do it again in the future.
