Whether you’re doing a residential roof cleaning project in Canberra or you’re performing a commercial roof cleaning service in the ACT, there are several steps involved. The most important part is making sure that you have the right equipment for the job.
Residential Roof Cleaning
Many times, you can find commercial-grade roof cleaning equipment at your local home improvement store Roof cleaning Canberra. Other times, you’ll need to rent or purchase the equipment depending on what you need to clean. In any case, it’s always a good idea to call ahead to see what kind of equipment is available. Here are some of the most common roof cleaning tools.
Typically, the most common and most effective way to clean roofs in both residential and commercial areas is with a high-pressure water sprayer. In most cases, this is sufficient enough to remove dirt, algae, moss, and other grime that have accumulated on your roof over the years.
The main downside of using a high-pressure water sprayer is that it can damage your ceilings and walls if not used properly, so make sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when using them.
There are also options such as dry chemical and soft washing that you can use to remove moss, algae, and another organic buildup from roofs. If you choose to use dry chemicals, make sure that you have a licensed contractor or business that is trained and able to perform the job.
Soft washing on the other hand is often considered a green alternative and is usually less expensive than using commercial grade chemicals.
