A roof cleaning offers many different benefits to a home owner besides the immediate aesthetic improvement. Actually, we like our customers to understand that it’s not just cosmetic, REAL DAMAGE is occurring underneath those nasty stains. One of the biggest benefits is the potential energy savings a homeowner may enjoy following roof service. Let’s review how we clean roofs and how we pass energy savings on to you.
At Safe Roof, our expert technicians remove algae, lichen and moss during a roof cleaning. They use a special 100% biodegradable solution which removes the foreign substances without damaging the roof shingles underneath. Our technicians never use a pressure washer on your roof since doing so would irreparably damage the shingles on your roof.
Before your roof cleaning you’ll notice that the algae, lichen and moss appear as dark streaks across your roof. A home with a darker roof retains more heat which in turn means your air conditioning works harder to cool your home than it would with a clean roof. A clean roof is lighter and “more breathable,” which means that more heat escapes through your roof and cools your home naturally. A cooler home means that you use less air conditioning in the spring and summertime which leads to a lower monthly energy bill and energy savings during the summer months.
