Of course we always recommend letting a professional perform this work, but we want to give you the information for you to make the decision on who to hire.
Many different roof cleaning companies clean roofs many different ways. We want you to understand the correct way your roof should be cleaned to not only improve the life of your roof, but also to keep it beautiful for years without having annual cleanings. We have spent years of training to become Kingwood, Texas’ # 1 roof cleaning company, and we want to pass this information on to our clients.
The Roof Cleaning Industry As We Know It
Many people do not even realize you can clean a roof. Many people think that a roof just has to be replaced once it get covered in mold. After many years of the non-professionals cleaning roofs the improper ways that only damage the roofs, we have mastered the proper techniques to get it clean, keep it clean, and expand the life of your roof. With these new techniques, the roof cleaning industry is heading into a new era, and is becoming more popular day by day.
The sad fact is that even most of the so called professional roof cleaning company’s in Houston, Texas only know as much as a typical property owner. This is the reason a property owner has to be very particular in whom they hire to clean their property’s roof. In Texas, anyone can call themselves a “roof-cleaner”, therefore it can be tricky with who you hire. There is no mandate to have a license to clean a roof. This allows for anyone with a pressure washer to state that they can clean roofs.
We have put a lot of time in training our roof cleaning technicians, and always have a roof cleaning professional on site when a cleaning is in process. With us in charge of your roof cleaning needs, we want you comfortable knowing we are the company performing your services.
Why you should clean your roof and why they get dirty!
The why part of the above question is pretty simple. Most people want their property’s roof cleaned for one simple reason. Beauty. Everyone wants a beautiful property. A property that will impress the family and friends when they arrive at your hard earned dwelling. But there are more reasons than just to beautify your property to have your roof cleaned. Having a clean roof also increases the efficiency of your property. Lowering your air conditioning bill is always a high priority in the Kingwood area. Having your roof shingles full of mold, mildew, and algae will absorb heat during the sunny days. Shingles are designed to reflect heat from the sun, not absorb it.
Why do roofs get so dirty? Let’s face it; the southern states are a hot nasty cesspool of fungus growing cities. The heat, humidity, and wet condition of Kingwood and other southern cities allow for the perfect conditions for mold, mildew, lichen, algae, and other fungi to grow on roofs, concrete, and just about everything outdoors if not protected and treated. Most residential roofs are shingle roofs. Shingles these days contain limestone fillers to help add weight. These limestone fillers are food for algae, mold, and moss. When the algae, mold, and moss feed on these limestone fillers, it decreases the lifespan of your shingles. With this information, you can see how keeping your roof clean increases the life of your roof. And of course you wouldn’t want this mold, mildew, and moss growing on the inside of your house, so why let it build up and grow on the outside?

Our Roof Clean Methods
We take pride in that our methods and operations of cleaning roofs are supported by ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association), and shingle manufactures like Owens Corning, GAF, and many others. The “Green” chemicals we use are plant and pet friendly and remove the growing fungus from the roots to insure that future fungus growth does not occur for years to come.
After Care For Your Roof Wash
Once your roof cleaning has been performed, there are tips and tricks to keep it this way for years to come. Most roofs will need another cleaning to stay on top of the fungus growth in about 3 to 4 years after the initial cleaning. During this 4 to 5 year period, it is recommended to have us come out and spray your roof with a protective coating each year. The protective coating we apply will help kill off any existing fungus growth, and in many cases will extend or even cancel out the need of another cleaning if kept up on an annual basis. Feel free to ask us about this chemical when we perform your free estimate.
