Reliant Roof Pros – Roof Cleaning in Arkansas
At Reliant Roof Pros, we’re proud to offer the best roof cleaning in Arkansas! Cleaning your roof is essential to maintaining the integrity and longevity of your roof. Without regular cleaning, you may leave yourself open to the risks of permeant and expensive roof damage.
How Does Roof Cleaning Protect My Home?
Your roof protects your home from rain, snow, ice, debris, and animals. Over time, the elements can start to take their toll and leave your roof dirty and worn. When your roof is left to its own devices, algae, mold, and fungus can leave permanent streaks and stains on your shingles – especially on the side of your roof that’s least exposed to the sun.
These microorganisms can cause irreparable damage to the underlying structure of your roof. That kind of damage can end up costing thousands of dollars in repairs or worse – replacement.
The best way to ensure that your roof is kept and serving you like new is to invest in regular, professional roof cleaning at least once a year.
Catch Damage Fast
Regular cleaning and routine roof maintenance keep your roof looking good, but they also serve as check-ins on the overall health of your roof. When we’re cleaning your roof, we always inspect it for signs of damage that need to be addressed. Catching a small hole or a peeling shingle can mean the difference between paying for a minor repair and scrambling to fund a major construction project necessitated by unchecked water damage.
The sooner you remove debris and repair minor problems, the less likely you are to develop major issues with your roof. This prolongs the lifespan of your roof and keeps you from having to replace it before it’s absolutely necessary.
Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Your roof is meant to protect you from the elements, including heat and cold. Dirty and darkened roofs have a harder time reflecting and absorbing the sunlight, making it hotter in summer and cooler in winter. A clean roof is an efficient roof!
Roof Cleaning FAQs
Why Does My Roof Have Black Streaks?
Black streaks on your roof are generally an indication of algae – specifically Gloeocapsa Magma. This algae is a living organism that feeds on the roofing materials mean to protect your home. If there is a large area of your roof in the shade or facing North, you’re much more likely to develop roof algae, mold, mildew, and fungus because it’s less exposed to the sun which means more moisture is allowed to gather.
If left untreated, this algea can spread to your gutters, siding, and even down to the pavers of your home.
Is the Roof Cleaning Process Safe?
We never use high-pressure washers on your roof because we know that can cause damage to your shingles, promote granule loss, and cause leaks. When roof cleaning in Arkansas, we use safe, non-pressure cleaning processes, and our cleaning solutions are 100% biodegradable. The cleaners are designed to eliminate mold, mildew, algae, and fungus without damaging your shingles.
To make sure that any surrounding landscaping, trees, or other plants are protected, we’ll cover them while we clean. We strictly adhere to the regulations and recommendations put forth by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturing Association (ARMA), as well as other notable roof manufacturers and roofing associations.
How Much Does Roof Cleaning Cost?
The cost of cleaning your roof will depend on the square footage, the pitch of your roof, and how complex the job is. For instance, a roof covered in moss will cost more to clean than a relatively well-kept roof.
