Streaks of black substance along your roof’s exterior indicates a pressing need for professional washing. The substances are often the manifestation of magma; a destructive algae that will eat away at your roofing material, and cause it to fail earlier than projected. The good news is that this destructive algae can be completely eliminated with professional roof cleaning from Walker Commercial Roofing. Our roof washing services consist of the following:
- Step 1: PH Application – Removes mold and breaks down alage
- Step 2: Pressure Wash – Drains contaminates from the roof’s surface
- Step 3: Touch Up – Finishes the wash with a protective treatment
Our process not only cleans your roof but it extends its cleanliness as far as possible. You won’t need another wash for 6 months or more when using our services. In addition to removing harmful algae, it also rids your surface of any other bacteria or contaminants. This helps prevent chronic roofing problems such as degradation, which can lead to premature roof failure. Call 817-484-5411 for commercial roof cleaning in Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, TX.
Commercial Roof Cleaning Services
Delaying cleanings can have severe implications for commercial building owners. Mildew and mold growth can begin to eat away at your roof’s layers, and deteriorate the membrane to the point of chronic leaks, and premature failure. While black streaks of algae are often times visible, building owners foolishly put off a professional washing in hopes of saving money. The problem with this logic is that it won’t save you money at all, but will end up costing you triple the amount you would spend on a commercial washing. Dangers of delaying cleanings include:
- Chronic Leaks
- Material Degradation
- Premature Failure
Identifying areas that could benefit from a wash is critical to commercial roof cleaning. The sooner the wash is performed, the more money you’ll save in the long run. There are cases where a roof’s damage is so severe, that a wash won’t really make a difference. While it will drain the surface of contaminants, structural damage has already occured, making replacement the only viable option. At Walker Commercial Roofing, we look at roof replacement as a last resort which is why we stress regular cleanings to delay its necessity.
Benefits Of A Clean Roof
Aside from prevention of roof deterioration, cleanings provide other advantages. For example, a clean roof is more aesthetically pleasing to onlookers, increasing the building’s property value, and therefore developing an additional business asset. Clean roofs can also help with energy efficiency, as dirt build up could affect ventilation, which causes HVAC units to work on overdrive. Keep in mind that nobody should walk on the roof for several days after cleaning.
Most building owners agree that replacement is a worst-case scenario. Not only is it the most expensive roofing service, but it disrupts your entire business operation, making its financial implications even greater. Proper maintenance, including regular inspections and cleanings is the best way to avoid premature roof failure, and subsequently the need for replacement.
