The Best Types Of Cleaning Methods For Your Roof

We have talked about this many times before, taking good care of your roof tiles is going to pay off because they will last much longer and they will also look good. Now, for the part that you are all here, what is the best method to clean a roof. Of course, we already have a favorite one, but we want to share with you some other methods too that are also good and worth trying out. Some of these methods are not easy to use and that’s why we always recommend hiring professionals to do the job.

After all, you really need your roof cleaned once or twice per year.

Pressure Washing

Our number one suggestion would be to use a pressure washer and clean your entire roof with it. As mentioned above, this won’t be easy to do on your own. Even if you have a pressure washer, you probably won’t have the equipment that will allow you to wash your roof. This isn’t easy, there are many things that can go wrong with pressure washing your roof tiles if you are not doing it the right way. First thing is that you can get water underneath the tiles and that water will directly go onto your ceiling which can cause water damage to your home.

The next big mistake people often do is they put the pressure washer on high pressure because they think they will be able to remove more dirt, but what happens is something much worse. The tiles can actually crack under the high pressure, especially if you are focusing into one spot. The best way to do this would be to hire professionals or do your research first before making any mistakes.

Roof Washing Chemicals

There are various washing solutions that are specially designed for roofs and if you are thinking about washing your roof, this might be a good idea to invest in. These are some very powerful chemicals that you shouldn’t be handled without protective gear on yourself, especially around your hands and eyes.

With these cleaning solutions, you will have no problem washing your roof with just water because the solutions will take care of the rest and you don’t even need a pressure washer. However, we still think that a pressure washer is better because it does a more detailed job and you don’t need to do it that often.
