Your home’s roof plays an integral role in both its curb appeal and structural integrity. A stained and dirty roof not only looks bad, but buildup of mold, pine needles, or leaves can damage your roof and cause leaks. The upper region of South Carolina is a perfect breeding ground for mold and many roofs in this area are plagued by unsightly dark streaks caused by bacteria (algae) known as gloecapsa. This growth is found on on many if not most homes in this area and experts agree that left unremoved will deteriorate shingles and shorten the life expectancy of your roof.
A common mistake among homeowners in this region is to believe that the dark streaks, typically seen on the north or shaded part of a roof are normal wear & tear and replace their roof prematurely, sometimes as often as every 5-10 years. Industry experts agree that making Proper Roof cleaning a regular part of your exterior home maintenance will allow homeowners to maximize their shingle life for up to 20 to 25 years, saving them thousands over the cost of a new roof.
When the time comes to have your roof cleaned, it is essential to hire a trusted and reputable roof cleaning company. Many homeowners and poorly trained professionals will utilize excessive pressure to clean or rinse a roof, believing that any action that removes the debris is suitable. While it is extremely important to wash away debris and algae, you should never allow anyone who utilizes exorbitant pressure clean your roof as they are likely to damage the shingles.
Washing a roof is different than standard pressure washing. It’s important to kill all of the organic material on a roof because in many cases there could be a chemical reaction going on. Certain forms of algae – for example – actually eat away at shingles and pollute the air that your family breathes. Our soft roof washing process is eco-friendly, inexpensive and safe for your roof. To ensure we can properly serve all property owners well we offer:
Professional pressure washing is the quickest way to freshen up your home’s exterior and prolong the life of your siding. While each situation is different, most homes can benefit from a thorough pressure washing once every 1-2 years. Your home’s exterior is its first protection against weather and other harsh elements and as time passes it’s typical for wear, discoloration, or even mold and mildew (often from plants that grow against your home) to appear on almost all siding types. Many homeowners make the mistake of thinking their home needs a costly fresh coat of paint when a proper cleaning may be all that it needs to give it new life!
In the same way that we evaluate a roof before any type of pressure washing begins, we will assist in determining what type of siding you have and how to best clean it. Some of the more common types of house siding include stucco, vinyl, metal, and wood.
Stucco Siding is prone to unattractive discoloration and staining and can be tricky to wash correctly without damaging the surface. At Upstate we understand the importance of selecting the proper pressure, nozzle type, water temperature and technique to safely brighten and seal with our unparalleled Thermoreactive Sealer.
Wood siding also requires thorough analysis from a professional. When the paint is good, debris can be safely removed. In the event that a new paint job is in order pressure washing is an excellent way to remove old paint and cleanse the surface before a new coat is applied. In all situations the grain of wood siding can become deeply embedded with mold, dirt and algae that must be removed in order to protect the integrity of the surface as well as the air your family breathes.
Pressure washing vinyl and metal siding prevents the build-up of debris, dirt, dust, pollens, sap and more. Oxidation from constant exposure to the sun can also make this type of siding appear faded and washed out. UpState's soft-wash technique can clear up all of these common problems. By applying the proper amount of pressure and extremely hot water we can quickly resolve these issues with little to no use of chemicals. The safety of the environment is always of upmost concern and when needed we use only environmentally friendly antibacterial cleaners.
Once your house is clean we always recommend the application of our invisible thermoreactive sealer. By permanently bonding to virtually any substrate this phenomenal product prevents further absorption of water and other contaminants. Learn more about our "best in class" ThermoReactive Sealer!!
