Can I Pressure Wash My Roof? A Guide To Roof And Gutter Cleaning

Can you pressure wash roofs

While traditional pressure washing is a great option for cleaning tough surfaces, like concrete and asphalt, it isn't always the best option for cleaning more sensitive surfaces, such as rooftops, gutters, and shingles. Our team at Epik Power Wash LLC offers a gentle soft washing alternative for your roof cleaning needs that can get rid of stains and buildup without the risk of additional surface damage. Soft washing combines a lower water pressure with a signature cleaning agent, and it will gently lift all black algae stains, organic matter, and anything else you need to be cleaned from your rooftop, gutters, and shingles - all without the risk of surface damage that traditional pressure washing can pose.

What Exactly Is Black Algae, And How Did It Get On My Roof?

Black algae is also known as gloeocapsa magma, and it's a specific strain of algae that grows in areas that experience high heat and high humidity. That means you've more than likely seen it on rooftops in the Florida area! This specific strain of black algae can also spread from rooftop to rooftop via the wind - which means, if you spot gloeocapsa magma on your neighbor's rooftop, there's a chance it could spread to yours as well. That's why it's so important to clean black algae from your rooftops as soon as you can once you notice it, to ensure that your rooftop and shingles are safe from harm.

What Other Stains Can Soft-Washing Remove From My Rooftop?
