Roof Cleaning in Cincinnati, OH
Your rooftop is one of the most important parts of any home because it keeps you and your family safe and dry. It shields you from rain, snow, sleet, hail, and other natural disasters outside. It also helps with heating and cooling because it blocks the sun’s heat in the summer and insulation in the winter.
Your rooftop is constantly exposed to the elements and harsh UV rays from the sun. Therefore, moss, dirt, and algae are likely to accumulate throughout the year. This not only gives your roofing a shabby layer of debris, but could also compromise its integrity. That’s why routine maintenance is so important to preserve its life and prevent early (and expensive) repairs.
With a few simple tricks, you can ensure that your rooftop stays in good condition for years:
– Clean: Dirt and debris on your roof’s surface block its waterproof ability and provides an ideal breeding ground for mold growth. Regularly sweeping/vacuuming debris off of the surface will reduce this problem.
– Inspect: Periodically inspecting the surface can catch small issues like screws coming loose before they turn into large problems like leaks or more extensive damage.
Another simple step you can take is soft washing! This is an easy way to remove all of the dirt and debris from the surface. However, if you’re worried about safety you can hire a professional who is soft wash certified.

Benefits of Getting Your Roof Cleaned by The Curb Appeal Pros
There are many reasons you should allow The Curb Appeal Pros to clean your roofing, including:
Low-Pressure: The Key to Safe Cleaning
An invasion of algae colonies leads to the formation of unsightly stains on the surface. The Gloeocapsa Magma type of algae feeds of the limestone that makes up asphalt shingles, too, deteriorating them over time.
You are likely to find the algae on the northern part of the roof since it receives less sunlight. The Curb Appeal Pros easily identify and securely remove Gloeocapsa Magma from your rooftop without damaging the limestone shingles.
No Expensive Repairs or Replacements
The large stains and streaks on your roof potentially increase your home’s cooling costs, too. Instead of reflecting sunlight, these stains absorb heat, making your house warmer.
If not removed early enough, the algae stains will also trap moisture and channel it into the ceiling wood. You will have to conduct expensive repairs or replacements to remedy the situation.
Remove Safety Concerns
There is always a lingering danger factor when you fail to clean your rooftop, as it may rot or become a structural hazard. Numerous property owners have also suffered injuries while trying to climb ladders to clean themselves.
It requires proper equipment, some skills, and experience to safely use a ladder and climb up to your rooftop, especially with slippery hazards like lichen and algae.
You also may not be sure of the right chemical to use, and some detergents are hazardous, endangering the health of your family or household if used incorrectly.
It is best to entrust this task to a professional like The Curb Appeal Pros.
Common Problems That Indicate You Need Your Roof Cleaned
Airborne algae can lead to the development of unsightly spots and black streaks on your shingles. Other growing organisms that can damage your shingles and lower the lifespan of your life include moss and lichens.
Most insurance companies demand that you remove any growing organism on your roof’s surface because of the expected structural loss. Our cleaning and removal processes adhere to the hygiene guidelines prescribed by insurance carriers.
The Gloeocapsa Magma also evolves into a new organism, called lichen.
Lichens affix tightly to shingles, making the removal by rain or wind difficult. If allowed to thrive, lichens will dislodge the upper section of your shingle, including the coat color. Your roof’s surface will probably become permanently scarred.
Extensive colonies of airborne algae cause unsightly dark spots on the surface. These large colonies, also known as Gloeocapsa Magma, attach to your roof’s shingles and often destroy or degrade the limestone filler.
The algae colonies will spread over the entire surface if left unchecked. Your roof system gradually loses its strength, and it eventually requires extensive repairs or even a full replacement, which can cost you thousands of dollars.
Mosses use rhizoids, root-like extensions, to penetrate your roof’s shingles. The moss will then use the webbed system of roots to trap and accumulate a sizable amount of soil. The thick layer of windblown soil will encourage the growth of lichen and algae on the surface of your rooftop, as well.
The interlocking root system means that any forcible removal of lichen damages your roof’s shingles.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often should you clean your roof?
Routine roof maintenance is highly advisable to prolong its lifespan. It is best to schedule your regular detailed cleaning twice a year, with light, less invasive maintenance occurring at some time during each season.
Is pressure washing your rooftop bad?
Pressure washing a rooftop can cause a lot of wear and tear to the surface. It could wind up costing you more than if you had just called for professional help from the start. The soft wash method is the optimal solution for this type of job.
How much does it cost to get your roof cleaned?
The cost will depend on factors like your roof’s size, whether it is a single or multi-layered shingle, and what kind of products are being used. Single sloped roofs with standard corrugated tiles typically range in price from $150-$400 depending on complexity.

What time of year should you clean your rooftop?
The best time for this job is in fall and spring when the temperature is more mild. Avoid washing your property during the winter when the water could freeze on your home and it’s more likely for the pressure wash machine’s pipes to freeze or break. Also, if you’ve noticed leaks recently, it’s always best to call a professional roofing contractor to perform an inspection for damage before cleaning your shingles.

Highly recommend The Curb Appeal Pros!! We called on a weekend and Austin actually came by on a Sunday to review what we needed done. They got us in quickly (Wednesday), cleaned the gutters, flushed the drain pipes, cleaned and treated the roof, and power washed the house. Very professional and did great work.
