Can I Do It Myself?
Yes, you can. Unfortunately, there are no ready made products that we are aware of that do a good job of cleaning your roof. Also, you will run the risk of falling off your roof. Roof cleaning used to be accomplished by climbing up on the roof with a pump-up sprayer full of roof cleaning mix, spraying until the sprayer was empty, climbing down, mixing another batch in the sprayer, and repeating this process until the entire roof was treated. created an awful mess when it failed. Roof Stain Removers and other professional roof cleaners have invested in cutting edge equipment which allows us to keep our prices down through efficiency. It’s up to you, but we think you could find a much better way to spend your day than climbing up and down a ladder and risking a fall from your roof.
Are You Insured?
Yes, we are insured. Currently the state of New York does not require professional roof cleaners to be licensed, but Total Service Pro has a business license and we are insured up to $2,000,000. We also carry Worker’s Compensation Insurance. We are a professional company and we obey all Federal, State, and local laws.
How Long Does It Take?
The roof cleaning process itself only takes a few hours. The results are even more rapid. We can have your Roof looking like New before we leave.
What Is The Process?
Our part is simple. We set up a ladder and use it to get up to the height of your roof. We then use the power of our electric pump to spray our detergent solution on your shingles. It is our proprietary solution that kills the algae on your shingles. Before, during, and after this process we water the trees, plants, flowers, and bushes around your house. That’s it. Your part is just as simple. Although you do not need to be present, you do have a few responsibilities. We are counting on you to to make sure that all your windows are closed. We are also counting on you to make sure that your vehicles are either in the garage or out away from the house. Additionally, we need you to make sure that your outside water spigots are accessible and in working order.
Do You Use High Pressure?
Absolutely not, and you should not allow anyone else to use high pressure on your shingles. If anyone wants to use gasoline powered equipment on your roof, make them prove to you that it does not exceed 80psi. (pounds per square inch). We use a 12 volt electric pump. The output from our pump is comparable to the output from your garden hose. There are two main reasons that we don’t use high pressure. First, it is simply not necessary. Secondly, the higher the pressure you use, the more granules you are removing from the shingle. The granules are there as part of the shingle’s structure and removing them is equal to shortening the lifespan of your shingles. This will inevitably lead to premature Roof replacement.
