Top Questions to Ask When Scheduling Roof Washing Service

Your roof plays a very important role in your home. It impacts curb appeal, keeps your home insulated, and protects it from the elements.

Unfortunately, like any other element of your home, your roof can get dirty over time if it’s neglected. Roofs in particular are prone to accumulations of Gloeocapsa magma, those brown streaks on roofs that are better known as “roof algae.” If roof algae is ignored, it can begin eating away at your shingles, forcing you to replace your roof sooner than you may otherwise would have needed to.

This is among the many reasons it’s a good idea to schedule regular roof washing service with our team at Softwash Ranger, serving homeowners throughout the Bloomfield, NJ area. When scheduling roof washing service with anyone, it’s also a good idea to ask certain questions. The following are a few key examples:

What method do you use to clean roofs?

Scheduling roof washing service with professionals instead of attempting to clean a roof on your own is very wise. Many homeowners believe that cleaning a roof is as easy as pointing a power or pressure washer at it.

Don’t make this mistake! Your roof’s shingles are not as durable as you may believe. Power or pressure washing a roof is sure to damage it. On the other hand, if you were to merely rinse your roof down with a garden hose, you wouldn’t clean it thoroughly.

It’s important to ask about the methods a team employs when you schedule roof washing service. For example, at Softwash Ranger, we (as our name implies) use the soft wash method. This involves applying eco-friendly detergents to your roof and gently rinsing them off with water. These detergents are specifically designed to remove debris and harmful organisms such as roof algae without causing harm to you, your roof, or the environment.

Are you licensed and insured?

Our soft wash method will keep your roof clean without damaging it. That said, it’s always helpful to have a degree of peace of mind when scheduling roof washing service. When you know the team you hire is licensed and insured, you’ll know that you won’t be financially responsible for replacing your roofing in the unlikely event that they do damage it.

Do you offer other property cleaning services?

Again, your roof is an essential component of your property. That said, it’s by no means the only essential component.

Keeping all areas of your property as clean as possible is critical. Along with a clean roof, you want clean siding, a clean driveway, a clean patio or pool area, and more.

Ensuring those elements of your property are clean throughout the year becomes much easier when you coordinate with professionals instead of trying to clean them all yourself. With that in mind, you may want to confirm that the team handling your roof cleaning needs can also help in other ways.

For example, at Softwash Ranger, offering safe and effective roof washing service to homeowners in and around Bloomfield, NJ, we also offer such services as power washing and roof snow removal. Call us today at 844-438-7638 to learn more about what we can do for you.
