Over the years, entrepreneurs have had a long debate on how to properly clean the roof. The safe and proper way to clean a roof at home is also controversial with many building trade associations. Even though roof cleaning may be important to preserve the look of your home and in many cases, roof cleaning really increases the value of many properties, contractors must be excessive care is made to clean n any particular roof.
Some roof repair associations have warned all owners to leave their own roofs with high-pressure water scrubbers and will judge their use to remove algae and black streaks from roofs to the reasons why they could cause more damage than ‘ they would not have
This is my own opinion as a special external cleaner whose associations are well justified in their judgment. In most cases, using a high-pressure washer to clean a roof is not only harmful to tiles and slates; most of them as extreme high pressure can also compromise the integrity of the roof structure. And a single pressure or the best way to clean low pressure should be applied to remove natural stains and debris such as mold, moss, and algae from tiles and slates.
Fortunately, some products have listened to those who are concerned about safety with regard to high pressure cleaning and washing equipment and are having difficulty designing “soft washers” for contractors and homeowners.
They use a special blend of ecological algae and neutralizing agents, mild surfactants and bio-degradable detergents with the ability to clean the most frightened stained roofs and can gently restore almost all roofs to an almost new appearance, all without the compromise on the integrity of the roof structure or environmental damage.
Some tips for the job to work:
- Do not let any contractor use a high-pressure cleaner on your roof. (Although some “soft wash roof” companies choose to use high-pressure washers for small periods in certain parts of the roof, the fact is that: mild washing or it is a high pressure cleaning without inter- two)
- As hiring a contractor to work on your home should always ask for at least three referrals from already satisfied customers. Entrepreneurs are always happy with their pleasant habits, so if an entrepreneur can not show you quotes from previous clients, probably the hood is: they have nothing.
- Do not hire a contractor with insufficient insurance and especially “clean the roof”. Most cleaning services and cleaning companies generally have enough insurance for general cleaning. However, since the liability is higher, cleaning of the roof is not always covered by the traditional low-level cleaning insurance thereafter; almost all insurance companies charge extra for high-level cleaning. So when you look at the insurance details of the contractors to work, make sure they apply to the roof cleaning.
- A good guide on how a professional roofing company is the quality of the image of his business. Good design and quality of printed business cards, flyers, etc. are generally good quality performance indicators likely to experience. In addition, contractors intend to present photos of customer prospectuses and photographs in previous job portfolios, if they can not take the time and effort required to help sales professionals the chances are that ‘they will not do the time or work and try to clean your roof properly.
