Shingle roofs are susceptible to picking up debris and dirt throughout the year. If you are considering which options are best to clean off the surface, here are a few tips to get started.
Avoiding pressure washing damage
In general, it’s best to avoid using pressure washing methods for general shingle cleaning. Most muck and debris that’s built up over time will be easily extinguishable with alternative methods. It’s not necessarily going to damage your shingles, but pressure washing is just unnecessary for the most part. To clean it more efficiently, try sweeping first. Then, once you’ve swept the area as clean as you can, gently applying water and a cleaning solution.
If you are set on pressure washing the roof though, you can do so with a bit of a weaker blast. This will clean it most effectively.
Alternatively, if you are struggling to find the time to commit to cleaning, you may want to hire professional assistance as well. Then you’ll be able to carry on with the rest of your day and not dedicate as much energy and effort to cleaning. Also, professionals don’t risk the job being done substandard or causing damage.
