Why Roof Cleaning Matters

Titan’s Roofing is now offering Softwash!

Have you ever seen unsightly black streaks or discoloration on your roof? No, it is not your roof telling you it’s time to go. The discoloration on your roof is actually caused by mold or mildew. Roof algae (also called a roof mildew or shingle mold) feed on the crushed limestone that is present in shingles. Roof cleaning keeps your roof free from algae, moss, and other organic growth. Protect your roof by choosing Softwash!

Here’s Why Roof Cleaning Matters:

Curb Appeal

The biggest reason people choose roof cleaning is that it preserves the appearance of their property. A dirty roof detracts from your home’s curb appeal. You clean your siding, porches, and walkways, why not pay some attention to your roof as well. Ignoring those ugly roof stains will cause them to become the main focal point of your exterior. As the opposite of your home reflects on the inside, unsightly streaks mean the opposite of hygienic. If you are hoping to sell your home, cleaning your roof is a must. Not only will it become an eyesore, but dark stains also give potential buyers the idea that the inside isn’t hygienic without ever stepping inside.

Preventing Structural Damage

Aside from cosmetics, roof cleaning also helps to stop the damage that organisms are doing to your roof. Certain organic growths feed on building materials as their main food source. The longer they are allowed to stay and feed off your shingles, the more damage they will cause. These organisms also hold water and render your roof susceptible to moisture damage. If you don’t deal with dark stains as soon as they pop up, they may cause problems that are beyond repair. They could also result in major leaks that can wreak havoc on your indoor spaces as well.

Health Threats

Mold growth in a home can pose health risks to people and pets. They usually cause respiratory problems, especially for children and elderly. They can also trigger allergic attacks and lead to other serious conditions if not dealt with.

Insurance

Your insurance company can cancel your homeowner’s policy if you have a dirty roof. Insurance companies demand that homeowners have their stained roofs cleaned and they will often give very short notice to do it. It is very important to be proactive and have roof stains professionally removed before you get a notice from your insurance company. Insurance companies know that untreated roof stains will negatively impact the overall integrity of the roof, which can also lead to mold growth INSIDE your home. Roof stains are seen as ‘risks’ that could cost them money in a claim.

Softwash

Regardless of whether you are a residential homeowner or a commercial business owner, preventative cleaning can save you thousands. But why soft wash? Soft wash kills and removes living bacteria. Power wash also removes bacteria but can cause significant damage to property. Our roof cleaning system will break down the bacteria that causes mold growth and the stains you may see causing your roof to deteriorate.
