How Roof Cleaning Increases The Longevity Of Your Roof

It’s no secret: the roof on your San Antonio home is one of the most important aspects of your entire property.

Not only does a roof protect you from the elements, but it keeps nasty critters and contaminants out of your home. With this in mind, why wouldn’t you (as a homeowner) do everything in your power to protect your roof and increase its longevity?

Unfortunately, most homeowners either aren’t aware of the methods or just don’t have the time to properly care for their roofs. One of the most effective and important tasks for keeping your roof in the best shape possible is roof cleaning.

What Is Roof Cleaning?

You may never have thought about cleaning your roof before; after all, a roof isn’t the first area of your home that comes to mind when it comes to cleaning.

Be that as it may, roof cleaning is essential to keeping your roof functioning properly and looking its best. No matter the material your roof has — whether it be shingles, clay tiles, or anything in between — roof cleaning is still absolutely necessary to increase its life cycle.

While roof cleaning (technically) can be done by anyone, it is highly recommended you go with a roof cleaning professional in San Antonio — like Glass Geeks — who is trained and has the necessary tools to perform a soft wash on your home’s roof.

A soft wash is different from a standard pressure washing and uses a low-pressure cleaning technique to effectively clean your roof while being gentle enough so as to not damage it at the same time.

Now that you know what roof cleaning entails, let’s explore a few reasons why it’s essential for your home:

Protecting Your Roof From Contaminants

Because a roof spends its time outdoors, it will naturally pick up contaminants — such as dirt, dust, moss, and other debris — which (over time and left untreated) will begin to cause damage.

Once contaminants have damaged your roof, you could be left paying a massive bill to replace the entire roofing system altogether.

In other words, a thorough roof cleaning from a quality San Antonio company like Glass Geeks can save you an immense amount of stress and money in the long run.

Ensuring You Don’t Lose Coverage

While some homeowners may not be aware, their homeowner’s insurance policy is prone to vanish when it comes to covering roof repairs if you haven’t done your due diligence to maintain it.

Right now you may be thinking “Hey, my roof is new and I have a pretty roof warranty to ensure I never have to spend a dime on a roof replacement.” Well, think again; many new roofing warranties have strict guidelines that you must follow in order for the warranty to be valid in the event of a roofing disaster.

These guidelines typically include performing regular maintenance and cleaning, in order to make sure you’re maximizing the longevity of your roof.
