Roof cleaning is relatively new to our area (Minnesota). It began in the 1980's in the south to try and combat organic growth on asphalt shingles. The growth is typically a form of algae, moss, or mold; all of which eat away at your shingles, which can cause them to curl up and deteriorate at an alarming rate. At first, it was a “handyman” job at best, people with little to no training using methods with little to no research to try and tackle a dirty roof. But it has grown far from that now.
There are endless articles online from universities showing amazing results cleaning roofs using a softwash method. The softwash method is the ONLY method recommended by the shingle manufacturers, and the ONLY method that we will use to make your dirty, grungy roof look like new again. Whether it's the black streaks, algae, moss, or just years and years of build up on your shingles, we can clean it and make it look new.
Manufacturers recommend cleaning your roof with this method every 5 years to prevent growth and get the full life and warranty out of your shingles. Call us today to have your roof clean and streak free! You won't believe the results!
