Locals in Richmond know that Priddy Roof Cleaning is well-deserving of our reputation for quality roof cleaning. In fact, we'll take it a step further and say we're the company to trust for thorough but safe roof cleaning.

There are plenty of options for pressure washing in Richmond, but how many of those offer more than standard power washing? Ridding your roof of dirt and contaminants is necessary, but doing it safely is even more critical. You don't want your roof washing to end up resulting in roof repairs.

Make sure your comprehensive list of annual maintenance includes roof cleaning and not just inspections. All of these services work in conjunction with one another to prolong the lifespan of your roofing system.

Dealing With Algae & Moss On Your Roof

The most common mistake homeowners make when it comes to roof cleaning is procrastination. And, the number one reason homeowners make this error is because they think roof washing is all about looks.

We're here to tell you those ugly black streaks on your roof aren't just cosmetic blemishes. This phenomenon is caused by a type of algae, Gloeocapsa Magma, and it's gradually destroying your shingles. Once the process begins, it can happen quickly, and you won't need cleaning - you'll need repairs or replacement.

Moss and algae tarnish your roof and detract from the curb appeal, but there are other culprits you want to avoid that roof cleaning can help with:

  • Pollen
  • Mildew and Mold
  • Cobwebs
  • Lichen
  • Rodent Scat
  • Organic Debris
  • Other Grime

Roof Washing For Better Energy Efficiency?

Professional roof cleaning improves the look, reduces repairs, and extends longevity - but what else? Believe it or not, regular roof washing can also help your home's energy efficiency.

Removing buildup, especially dark patches, lowers thermal heat buildup. Your roof and interior won't get as warm, and that means lower cooling bills and less staring on your air conditioning system.

At Priddy Roof Cleaning, we practice safe cleaning for roofing and other surfaces. Our soft washing techniques work better for safe but efficient methods. Other benefits of this no pressure alternative are:

  • No shingle damage
  • No missing granules
  • No water intrusion
  • No mold and rot
  • No return of moss or algae

Using cleaning solutions to clean away contaminants is more effective than power washing for killing algae and fungus at a molecular level. This approach means it won't come back as soon as your rooftop dries. Give our pros a call right now to schedule roof cleaning for your home in Richmond or surrounding areas.
