FIVE ROOF CLEANING TIPS
This FIVE ROOF CLEANING TIPS post is helpful for anyone providing professional roof cleaning service. If you are new to the pressure washing industry, you may not be able to provide roof cleaning service at the start. But as you grow your business, you can purchase equipment and expand the services you offer. Roof cleaning is certainly a great service to add for any pressure washing business. I hope these FIVE ROOF CLEANING TIPS help you decide if this service is right for your company.
MOSS AND LICHEN
Setting customer expectations is the first of my FIVE ROOF CLEANING TIPS when dealing with moss and lichen. It’s important that the customer understands that moss and lichen will not be removed from the roof. It will change color and usually turns white. We explain that the mix we use will kill the moss and lichen, which is why it turns white. With wind and rainfall over time, it will eventually loosen from the tiles but we never discuss a specific time frame. We suggest explaining that it didn’t get there over night, so it won’t go away over night either. Using pressure to attempt to remove moss and lichen from the roof will only do more damage to the integrity of the roof.
The second of the FIVE ROOF CLEANING TIPS is DO NOT FLOOD THE ROOF! The shingles just need to be wet but when water runs off, you’re simply wasting product and could possibly harm plant life below. We use our 10 Gallon Per Minute Kingslinger soft wash system with a 2 Gallon Per Minute tip. This helps me control and preserve solution.
For the full details of the remaining FIVE ROOF CLEANING TIPS, be sure and watch the entire video. We demonstrate use of Tyvek House Wrap from Lowe’s to assist with property protection. Wetting plants before, during, and after the project is important to protecting the plant life from any degree of damage. I also explain the use of guns versus using a ball valve.
