Why Call Mike’s for a Roof Cleaning?
Roof cleaning is known to prevent premature aging of your roof. Much like everything else we use, if we clean and maintain our roof, it will last longer.
Don’t risk your neck! … or back.
If you are uncomfortable working on your roof, especially if you have a steep roof slope, don’t risk the fall! Mike offers his roof cleaning services with years of knowledge, experience, and all the right equipment. He never uses high power washing on your roof because this can cause damage to your shingles. He uses a soft wash method combined with the right chemicals to make your roof streak-free. Adding curb appeal to your home and giving you peace of mind knowing you won’t have to replace your roof anytime soon.
“We had terrible looking black streaks on our roof and we had no idea what caused them. We contacted Mike’s Power Washing and Roof Cleaning and he explained to us what was really causing these streaks. He was honest in telling us that it wouldn’t create problems for us with our roof right away, but we had him come out a few months later for our peace of mind.” – Bill and Debbie
Is Roof Cleaning Needed in Washington D.C?
Washington D.C. is humid. The high humidity levels create an environment for high algae growth. Many homeowners are not aware, but they have algae growing on their roofs.
Do you have black streaks on your roof? These streaks are actually a blue-green algae called Gloeocapsa magma. The black stains that you see are actually the algae that has accumulated and developed a dark, hardened outer coating. This algae, as well as moss buildup, eats away at the limestone of the asphalt roofing shingles. Algae and moss are living things, and while they won’t create immediate damage to your roof, like all living things, they will continue to grow. With the increased growth, comes premature aging of your shingles, and can eventually cause a leaky roof.
