At Under Pressure, we pride ourselves on being cutting edge in this industry. That’s why we never pressure wash a roof, any kind of roof. We’ve used a soft-wash technique for years, and the moment a new “green” cleaning solution and application process was available, we incorporated that into our business as well.
With our hot, humid climate here in SWFL, our roofing materials get really gross black streaks on them regularly. Those black streaks are bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma, which is more than unsightly looking, it’s down right destructive to your roofing materials. You see it’s a microorganism that puts down roots that start to disintegrate your roof! Along with that bacteria are other organisms like mold, fungi, algae, mildew, lichen, and moss. Pressure washing merely blows the outer, visible signs of these organisms, leaving the roots in place, so mold, mildew and bacteria grow back fairly quickly.
Many roofing surfaces are made with materials that can be metabolized by these microorganisms. For example, shingles contain limestone, which contains phosphates, an excellent source of nutrients for algae, mildew, and bacteria to feed on. These microorganisms will break down a roofing surface and cause decomposition. This in turn, will also aid the process of erosion caused by running water such as rainfall.
Our BioWash system removes these microorganism stains safely! In addition, this green solution is completely safe for all of your landscape plantings and grass because it’s biodegradable. It’s effective on all kinds of roof tiles. The formulation of the product and the application techniques the company trained us in allows the cleaning solution to have a longer dwell or linger time, which means less run off, and increased results from just one application. The product does not damage tiles and returns them to their original color over time. One of the best things about this product is that it actually works with the rain! When it rains, the enzymes in BioWash are activated, deeply cleaning and preventing the stains from returning, when you schedule regular preventative services with us.
BioWash is also a great solution to keeping your brand new roof, on your brand new home, from ever getting those black streaks. So if you’ve moved into a new construction home, even though the roof is not dirty right now, you should consider having us BioWash it right now, and get on a twice a year maintenance plan. You will literally never see a dirty roof, and your roofing materials will last longer by never letting the microorganisms that cause damage to take root.
Not only will your roof love that, your insurance company will as well. Because when it comes to insurance, maintenance can go a long way toward saving you money. Many insurance companies require that homeowners maintain a clean roof as part of house maintenance in general. Maintenance helps to sustain the longevity of your roof.
There are other benefits to having your roof cleaned regularly as well. When we are on a maintenance plan with you, and we come twice a year to clean your roof, we are also the most likely ones to see any damage you may have sustained to your roof over time, which can mean smaller repair and replacement bills in the future. Cleaning your roof can reveal areas of it where the tile is worn out or damaged, so they can be replaced if needed. When we are up there, we can see if there are tiles that are dried out and crumbling, or buckled and ready to come loose! We can see where there are soft spots along the surface, or discoloration that indicates water damage to the interior studs and joists. Once you see the areas of damage, you can have them repaired quickly, before it becomes a leak that can damage the interior of your house.
Our BioWash service is an industry first, and we hope you’ll call us today to clean your roof with this environmentally and roof friendly product. If you’re interested in having the black stains on your roof removed safely and with long-lasting results, give us a call at Under Pressure at 239-218-5085!
