Roof Cleaning Company
Clean and Green Solutions, your local Houston Texas Roof Cleaning Company has been cleaning roofs for over 20 years. In addition, we have both the experience and equipment to clean asphalt shingle and tile roofs properly and safely. Our cleaning process and procedure does not require the use of a pressure washer. This eliminates any risk of damage or granule loss to your roof.
It is important to ensure anytime an exterior cleaning service is being provided that proper guidelines and procedures are followed. For this reason, we adhere strictly to the Asphalt Shingle Manufactures guidelines when cleaning roofs. Any Roof Cleaner Company that does not follow these guidelines can and will cause damage. Damage occurs if they use a Pressure Washer to clean a roof, no matter how low they say the pressure is. It can and will damage the surface by causing premature granule loss.
Never Use A Pressure Washer to Clean a Roof
These manufacture guidelines also state to only use a cleaning solution that contains Bleach in it. The reason for this is that the Bleach kills the Algae, that is what the black stains are, and also provides for a better and longer lasting cleaning. Most companies that use a pressure washer, will use a pre treat chemical that contains a degreaser, or Sodium Hydroxide in it. These chemicals are bad for asphalt shingles and can actually cause them to degrade faster. Make sure when choosing a Roof Washing Company that you verify that they are following your shingle manufacture guidelines, and using only a cleaning solution that contains bleach. Using any other method, such as a PRESSURE WASHER or product other than bleach, can and will void your remaining warranty.
Choose a Roof Cleaning Company that you can trust, one that follows manufacture guidelines as well as industry standards. Choose Houston Roof Cleaning Company, Clean and Green Solutions, and you can be guaranteed that your roof is cleaned safely and properly.
