One factor that may affect how a roof is cleaned would be to know what material a roof is made. Tiles, shingles, and metal roofs all have small differences to be mindful of when cleaning them. Keep reading to learn all you need to know about roof cleaning services in the Venice, FL area before getting your roof pressure washed. 

What To Expect When Getting Your Roof Cleaned

The process for pressure washing tile and shingle roofs are about the same except in how we maneuver around the roof. We will not step on tile roofs and will stay on a ladder for the entirety of the service for our safety and to keep your roof from cracking. 

First, we will unload and make necessary preparations, such as covering plants in a thick plastic to protect them from the chemicals in our cleaning solution, then we will add catches on downspouts for the runoff from your roof.

We will then begin pressure washing your roof, trying to keep off of it if possible in the case of a shingle roof. If there are any trees obstructing your roof, you’ll want to have some branches trimmed back beforehand so that we can reach the entire roof on the day of your service. 

How often you’ll need to power wash your roof, is dependent not only on your location, but on what type of rain and wind we have during the year and how many trees are around your house. The standard time frame we advise for power washing in Venice, FL is every 2 years. 

What About Metal Roofs? 

Metal roofs are a little trickier to power wash. It is certainly possible to do, but you run a greater risk of rust occurring on the screws or roof. We prefer not to work on metal roofs for this very reason, but we suggest using a homemade cleaning solution to gently clean your roof every year or so. 

Simply mix ¼ cup of a mild dish soap and a gallon of water together, then apply to and clean your metal roof with a soft bristled brush, cloth, or sponge. Let this solution sit on your roof for 5-10 minutes, then rinse it off your roof. 

Make sure you use a safety ladder and wear good gripping shoes. Never attempt to climb onto your metal roof, and be careful not to overreach.
