Our advanced residential roof cleaning technique


                                Preparation when applying roof mildew remover is paramount. Protection of the plants, siding, and downspouts is a must. This will ensure that roof cleaning the solution does not damage these items. We pretreat all of the landscaping in that area with dowsing it in the water. The plants need to be pre wet and then rinsed again after applying the solution. We rinse the siding before and after applying the solution. If the siding is not rinsed the solution can change the color of the paint on the siding. For the downspouts we wrap plastic sacks on the downspouts to collect whatever solution comes down to them. Covering the spouts with bags will catch all the solution that will come down the gutter system This will stop the solution from getting on the landscaping from the downspout.             

Applying solution

Now we can either use a ladder to stand at the roof’s edge or get on the roof to apply the solution. The solution we apply is bleach-based with soap the bleach strength can range between 6 and 12% sodium hydrochloride. After applying a solution, we will wait 20 minutes to see if there are any areas that need to more solution. Then we will apply a post rents of water to the plants. Last, we will remove the plastic socks from the downspouts, and put the solution on a concrete pad. the solution will not harm your concrete all it will do is clean it.                

Only hire roof cleaning companies that use low pressure or soft wash techniques. These soft washing sprayers have a maximum pressure of 100 psi. Ordinarily, the strength of the solution can vary between 3% and 6% bleach with soap to allow a better dwell time. Never allow a roof cleaning company pressure wash your roof. If they use high pressure it will deteriorate your roof.

Are you going to pressure wash or soft wash my roof?

At Foxland cleaning we never pressure wash a roof. we only use a soft wash technique which has a maximum of 100 pounds of pressure per square inch. Due to the way shingles are made if you use a professional that is going to pressure wash or even rinse on low pressure, they will deteriorate your shingles causing many of the granules to come off. Companies should only allow soft wash techniques on a roof. One last note, black streaks should come out that same day. However, with a growth such as Moss this is just a treatment that will kill it. we will not wash it off sing as the rain we’ll take care of that in a gentler manner.             

I have black streaks on my roof do I need it cleaned

Might I begin by explaining why those black streaks are there. Organic material is in the air all around us and it lands on your roof. A fungal growth called lichen will attach itself to that organic material to eat it and once it’s through supplies gone it will die which causes the black streaks. The lichen itself is not an issue seeing as they do not grow roots in your paint or shingles.             

However, the issue comes when other fungal growths such as mold, mildew and Moss begin to feed upon the Lichen. Accordingly, these types of fungus do have roots and will anchor themselves on your roof causing your roof to prematurely deteriorate. This is why removing the black streaks from your home is so important.             

          Guaranteed Work

We can treat the moss on your roof so that it will come off during a heavy rain. The moss will turn to a white cottage cheese look when it is dead. Which means the rain will remove it the rest of the way. The black stains on the roof will come out before we leave the project. However, it is sometimes difficult to see the complete removal of all the stains on the roof. Nevertheless, if for any reason the removal of moss or mold is not completed from your roof, we will treat the roof again at no extra charge.
