Why We Did It
When we developed our cleaning solution, the goal was simple: to provide a safe alternative to ineffective and dangerous roof cleaning techniques.
How It Works
Our chemical solution is unique because it isolates and dissolves mildew without pressure washing or rinsing the roof, which means no run-off. When the solution is applied it separates the mildew spores from the surface being cleaned and suspends them in a foaming material, chemically dissolving them in seconds. There is no need to rinse and most roofs take less than an hour to complete. Also, the solution contains a mildicide that leaves behind a film to prevent future mildew growth. Success, the safest and longest lasting roof cleaning available!
What is the Difference?
Let’s face it, your roof wasn’t designed to withstand 4,000 pounds of pressure. High-pressure washing will etch the surface of your roof making it faded and more porous. When your roof is more porous it takes longer to dry after rains and you get more mildew growth in shorter periods of time. This means more cleanings over the life of the roof, which results in leaks and ultimately shortens the life of your roof. Most Florida residents replace their roof between 20-25 years. Most roofs come with 35-65 year warranties. Pressure washing destroys roofs.
Low-Pressure Cleaning / Soft Wash
Low-pressure washing is definitely a better alternative to pressure cleaning, however, it still has its flaws. With this type of cleaning high concentrations of dangerous chemicals are applied to the roof. The next step will be to use a lower pressure washer to rinse off the mildew. Remember, mildew is a living organism very similar to the plants around your property. By rinsing the roof you expose the property to high concentrations of plant-killing chemicals. Additionally, this takes twice as long as our one-step process resulting in increased liability and more chance of broken roof tiles.
As previously mentioned mildew is essentially a plant. Eco-friendly products are more about preventing mildew naturally. In other words, it does not work on really dirty roofs. If it did it would not be environmentally friendly because mildew is as much a part of the environment as dolphins and panda bears. So be wary of companies claiming to have environmentally friendly products, especially if the company expects you to wait several weeks to see results.
