Gentle Indianapolis Roof Cleaning Specialists

You’ve invested hundreds to thousands of dollars in your Indianapolis home’s roof, so keeping it protected and attractive is extremely important. For that reason, the roofing contractor professionals at Thomas Jefferson Roofing & Remodeling LLC recommend scheduling roof cleaning at least once every two years. Professional cleaning is a very effective and cost-efficient way to keep your home’s roofing in excellent condition and reduce the need for residential roof repair, protecting it from any number of things that may lead to your roof rapidly decaying.

Soft Washing & Algae Removal

Having algae on your roof makes it less attractive, but it’s a much more serious problem than that. Algae growth on your roof is not something you can put off addressing.
Roof algae is a living organism, and it feeds off of a limestone filler commonly used in shingle production. If algae growth isn’t taken care of, it can take years off of the life of your roofing. Without regularly roof cleanings—especially if the algae is visibly noticeable—it can lead to rapid deterioration of your shingles, which can have a few adverse effects:

Since your shingles help block UV rays, you’ll see a drop in your Indianapolis home’s energy efficiency and a steep rise in your heating and cooling costs.
You’ll have to replace your roofing much sooner than you should need to, which can be extremely costly and time-consuming.
It’s also important to remember that algae are completely invisible in their earliest stages of development. So even if your roof appears to be alright, there’s a chance that now is the best time to have it cleaned. Many homeowners may decide to spot clean their roof, but algae could be affecting your entire roof even if it’s only visible in spots.

Roof cleaning isn’t enough, though. You need a team to use soft washing, which prevents damage that can occur from standard power washing and destroys fungus and bacteria molecularly, so it doesn’t grow back. For quality roof cleaning from a company in Indianapolis that cares, contact us now.
