THE IMPORTANCE OF PRESSURE CLEANING
Contrary to popular belief, rainwater is not the solution to cleaning your roof. Not only can environmental factors cause damage to your roof, but leaving your roof dirty can lead to dark stains of moss, algae and mould to grow. This can quickly cause decay in your roof, and also leaves the general aesthetic of your home at a low and damage the lifespan of your roof. Build-up of leaves and branches can also be a huge fire risk, and in the Australian summer this is not something that you would want embedded in the roof of your home.
To avoid the deterioration in your roof, and decrease the risk of fire hazards you need a high pressure cleaning service to ensure that nothing is left behind. Xtreme Exterior Cleaning use only the best tools and equipment to ensure that a quality job is done, and that our customers are left happy with the results of the high pressure roof cleaning carried out. This affordable service can prolong the life of your roof and add value to your property by leaving your roof as new as the day you got it.
A complete new roof is probably one of the most expensive outlays for a homeowner, so it makes sense to properly maintain yours, thus extending its lifespan. Indeed there are several very good reasons why you should keep up with maintenance of your roof, some of which you may not be aware of.
Firstly, an untidy roof, covered in green and yellow moss and lichen or black algae, ruins the appearance of a house and may well detract from its market value. You can decorate the exterior of your home and spend a fortune on your grounds but it will never really look the part if the roof is unsightly.
Plus real estate agents may well recommend a clean before a property is put on the market. After all, first impressions count. And the longer you leave the job the more difficult it will become and the more likely it is to cost.
Secondly, there are a number of technical reasons why you should consider investing in cleaning. Moss and lichen can spread quickly and stealthily, depending on the local conditions, such as tree shade, humidity and position in relation to the sun. Although plants do not actually attack roof tiles themselves they can hold water against the surface and create an environment that leads to the roofing material becoming more porous and, hence, more susceptible to rain erosion over time.
One of the main problems with moss, in particular, is that it can accumulate in the various rain channels on the roof and lead to poor drainage and gutter overflows. The consequence of this is often water running down the walls of the house, which can lead to a whole new set of potentially expensive problems. The growth also inhibits the reflective quality of the roof and can lead to higher air conditioning bills.
If you would like to have your roof look nice and new again, just call 044 777 3433 or inquire online. Xtreme Exterior Cleaning have cleaned hundreds of roofs and always use a process ad treatment that will not only remove all the dirt and contaminants but will also inhibit the regrowth of lichen and algae by killing the leftover spoors that inhibit the nooks and crannies of your roof tiles. If you have terracotta roof tiles once cleaned and treated your roof will literally look like new and there will be absolutely no need to worry about painting terracotta as the colour is natural and glazed and it will be there for life.
