Shingle roofing is one of the most common roofing materials across the US. Many homeowners who have shingle roofs don’t know enough about maintaining them. If you have noticed that your roof is no longer uniform in color, you likely need to get your roof clean. Roofs can look dirty due to algae or moss growth or other problems.
If something is growing on your roof, it can harm your shingles over time, so it’s important to get your roof clean.
The video posted here shows how a professional roof cleaner gets an asphalt shingle roof clean. If you plan to hire a professional service for this project, watching the video will give you a great understanding of how they will treat your roof.
If, on the other hand, you want to clean your roof on your own, you have other options that don’t require expensive equipment or supplies. Your local hardware or home improvement store should have special cleaning chemicals designed for asphalt shingles. You simply need to dilute them as directed in a garden sprayer, spray them all over the roof, and wait the specified amount of time before rinsing them off. This is a fairly easy process and should kill moss and algae in just one treatment.
