Many of our new clients are unfamiliar with
the roof cleaning process. Our goal is to properly educate
our clients about the exterior cleaning and care of their
residential and/or commercial property.
A common misperception regarding exterior cleaning, and
especially roof cleaning, is that high pressure is required
to remove algae, mildew, dirt and other contaminates. Pressure
cleaning shingle roofs can cause granule loss and damaging
leaks. It can also cause chipping, cracking and color fading
on tile roofs as well as the above-mentioned leaks. Inexperienced
cleaning contractors or Do-it-Yourselfers can often do more
harm than good when attempting to clean a roof surface with
too much pressure. Not only can this be dangerous for an
inexperienced home owner, but it also shortens the life
of the roofing material. As many know, replacing a roof
can be inconvenient, time-consuming, and expensive.
We at All Seasons Exteriors, Inc. use the non-pressure roof
cleaning method recommended by the Asphalt
Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA). Non-pressure
chemically-treated roofs have been proven to stay clean
significantly longer than those which have had nothing other
than a pressure washer and water used on them. Our cleaning
process is accomplished by using only enough pressure to
apply the chemical solution to the roof surface. The solution
is sprayed at a pressure consistent with a drizzling rain
and the algae and mildew stains are immediately removed.
A strong downpour actually strikes the roof surface with
more pressure than this proven chemical cleaning process.

process as well as our other exterior cleaning services.
