Our hot and humid South Florida climate is unfortunately not very kind to your roofing materials. A permanently damp roof not only provides the perfect medium for algae and mold to grow but also attracts grime and dirt that make unattractive stains.
At ABC Roofing, we care about our customer’s roofing needs, but we also care for the environment. We looked for a roof cleaning and stain prevention product we would be proud to associate with, and that is why we use Roof-A-Cide.
Many homeowner associations in South Florida make it mandatory for communities to maintain clean roofs, the reasons for doing so include:
- Clean, stain-free roofs improve curb appeal
- Dirty roofs detract from your home’s true value.
- Regular cleaning not only removes dirt, grime, and stains, but also mold and algae which pose a serious health risk and are instrumental in breaking down certain roofing materials, thereby decreasing the lifespan of your roof.
Previously, homeowners were limited to traditional roof cleaning methods namely high-pressure cleaning, and the use of harsh chemicals like chlorine bleach.
Chemical cleaning, although effective, is damaging to the environment and your roofing materials, reducing the lifespan of your roof. Repeated use of harsh chemicals also damage the landscape and result in corrosion of all steel components of your roof, including the nails.
The other popular method, high-pressure cleaning, has machines that shoot water out at up to 4000PSI (pounds per square inch). The powerful water stream often causes broken shingles, cracked tiles, and general erosion and deterioration of your roofing materials.
