Keeping the roof of your home in tip-top shape is a must. It not only protects your property from the elements but also helps to save on energy bills by reflecting the sun’s rays and keeping your attic cool.

The moss, algae, dirt and grime that accumulates on your roof can cause it to look unsightly, which can reduce its curb appeal and affect your property’s value. Pressure washing will help to restore its clean appearance and make your roof more appealing to potential buyers or renters.

Remove Moss and Algae

Moss and algae are common problems that homeowners face. These organisms can easily cling to surfaces, which can result in damage to the exterior of a property.

Fortunately, this type of damage can be prevented. Using pressurized washing to remove dirt, grime, and moss from the surface of your roof will stop the spread of these materials and prevent further damage to the structure of your home.

One of the easiest ways to prevent moss from growing on your roof is to ensure that it does not get a lot of sun. This can be accomplished by trimming or removing branches that are obscuring your roof’s exposure to sunlight.

Another solution for removing moss from your roof is to apply boiling water to the areas where it is growing. This will control the growth and will also make it easier to remove once the growth is gone.

Remove Dirt and Dirty Stains

Pressure washing is an effective way to remove dirt and dirty stain from your roof. It also cleans the surface and prevents damage that can occur if you don’t take care of it.

A high-pressure jet of water can blast away mud, dirt, algae, and moss from surfaces, including concrete. The powerful water jets also get into the smallest crevices, cleaning out any build-up that may have been left behind over time.

Dirt and grime accumulation can make surfaces a breeding ground for bacteria, which can cause illness. Pressure washing is an effective way to kill these germs and protect your family’s health.

When using a pressure washer, be sure to use a detergent that won’t damage the surface you’re washing. If you’re not sure, you can spot-test it before cleaning your entire wall.

Remove Stubborn Debris

The best way to get rid of stubborn dirt, moss, algae and other debris is by using a good pressure washer. They work by delivering a high-pressure stream of water that scours the surface of whatever you’re cleaning, including brick and concrete.

They come in a wide range of power sizes, from electric-powered models that can produce up to 2,000 psi (pounds per square inch) to gas-powered units that can pump out more than twice that much. The best ones will also feature a fancy hose that is capable of delivering the water at the highest possible pressure. The hose should be of the highest quality you can afford, such as the latest hydraulic or swivel design, which are both more than adequate for getting the job done. The best hoses will also include a decent number of attachments, including some that are designed specifically for cleaning the roof of your home. You may also want to consider buying a good quality brush for those times when the hose just isn’t enough.

Clean the Gutters

Keeping your gutters clear of clogs is a must-do home maintenance task. Not only does it protect your roof and foundation from water damage, but it also extends the life of your gutters.

Rather than manually scooping out the debris with a trowel, consider using a power washer to clean your gutters. Not only will this be quicker, but you will get a much cleaner job done!

When cleaning the outside of your gutters, make sure to use a low-pressure nozzle. High-pressure pressure washers can cause damage to gutters.

If you are unsure of how much pressure to use, call a professional for help. They will be able to assess the condition of your gutters and recommend a suitable pressure setting.
