Roof Cleaning Edina
Edina Roof Cleaning
Many homeowners in Edina trust Wash Masters to keep their roof looking sparking clean. Do you know what roof washing is, or why it’s important? Do you know how often you should have it done? Have you ever tried to do it yourself but had limited success? Having served the Edina area for many years, we have received many questions about roof washing, and a few of them we get all the time. We hope to answer your questions today, but if yours isn’t here, of course give us a call! We would be happy to answer your questions. Here are some questions we get all the time:
Q: Is roof cleaning necessary?
A: Roof cleaning is necessary for a number of reasons. The most important reason, however, is to extend the life of your shingles. When moss starts to gather around the edges of your shingles, this is an indication that moisture is not able to escape your roof. This leads to more moss and more moisture. You could be looking at a catastrophe if moisture gets under your shingles or into your attic. Another indication of your roof retaining moisture is algae, which can show up as black streaks. Moisture can be an issue with algae, too. Algae can be easier to identify from the ground. You are in luck, because Wash Masters has been providing roof washing services in Edina for many years, and we are equipped and ready to take care of both of these nuisances!
Q: Can my roof be pressure washed?
A: The answer is no! Even if you have a metal or tile roof, you should not pressure wash it. These materials may be able to withstand the power of a pressure washer, but there may be moisture that gets under the roofing materials. A pressure washer could easily destroy asphalt shingles. This is the problem with pressure washing your roof. What should be used instead is a method called “soft washing,” which involves the use of mild detergents, low pressured water, and then a rinse. It’s as easy as that. You should rely on a professional roof washing team in Edina to handle this, however. What we can clean from the ground in a couple hours may take the average homeowner all week.
Q: How much does roof cleaning cost?
A: This really depends on the size of the roof, but if you compare the cost of having your roof professionally washed by Wash Masters versus the cost of equipment rental, buying the detergents (which aren’t widely available), plus your time, it’s easy to see that we’re more affordable. You also need to consider the risk of accidents and injury. These costs could cause financial ruin.
Q: How often should I have my roof washed?
A: This depends on where you’re located. If you live in an area that gets a lot of shade, if you live in an area where dust gets kicked up a lot, or if you have a lot of trees, you may wish to have your roof cleaning more frequently. If your roof is starting to look dull, or if you can tell that there’s moss or algae growing, give us a call.
