Many roofs become severely damaged and end up needing to be replaced, in as little as 3 - 6 years. Most of the time, all they need is a good professional cleaning and cleaned again when the black streaks start to reappear. Sun exposure and proper cleaning affects the length of time between the reocurrence of algae, fungus, bacteria and lichen. Most customers are unaware that roof shingle manufacturer's can void the roof shingle warranty, due to pressure washer damage, while still requiring, that a roof be properly cleaned. Soft washing cleaning process is an effective, affordable and acceptable roof and exterior cleaning process.
Do not let anyone to walk on your roof unless it is absolutely necessary for a repair, or tp remove debris or tree branches, ets. Walking on a roof will most likely result in broken rf shingles and possible damage to the barrier, that protects the roof felt from damage. The felt prevents the water from getting into the house.
Do not allow your roof to be pressure washed by a pressure washing contractor. Most pressure washing guys are truly taking their life into their own hands and are a liability to you.
Do not believe that pressure washing your roof will truly clean your roof. What it does do, is make it look cleaner, while spreading the algae, bacteria, mold, mildew and lichen, throughout the rest of the roof. Shprtly there afterwards, the infestation will come back with a vengence.
