You’ve probably heard about why regular maintenance on your roof is important. Mainly it’s about why there can’t be missing shingles, why you have to pay close attention to holes, etc. All of these are very important tips, but the biggest issue is that very few talk about why regularly cleaning your roof is just as important. Arguably, it’s one of the most important steps because it’s the first line of defense to keeping your roof not only looking nice but making it last! Here are three benefits to having your roof soft washed on a regular basis.
- Keeps It Clean: Visually, one of the most obvious reasons is that a soft wash keeps your roof looking nice. Over time, dirt, debris, salt, algae, and bacteria can build up on the roof. With the exception of wind and rain, the roof is hardly touched, making it the perfect breeding ground for several different things. Mostly they’ll end up causing unsightly stains on the surface of the roof. With regular washes, this can be prevented.
- Saves You Money: Everything that can get caught on your roof could make it even darker than it may be. Dark colors absorb the sunlight more, which in this case means it’ll be more difficult to cool the house down. You might be paying more for your heating and cooling system without even realizing it. Regularly soft washing your roof could end up saving you money in the long run.
- Expands the Lifespan: That dirt and build-up on the roof can weaken it. The shingles can become brittle and deteriorate prematurely. With regular washings, the roof will be able to last very close to, if not its entire, lifespan.
